After anal sex I was bleeding. I used prep h and the next day was swollen, sore and have sveral red bumps. Allergic reaction or more likely std?

Trauma? STD?: Immediate onset of bleeding plus the other symptoms only a day later favor injury. But trauma less likely if you bottom regularly & anus/rectum are accommodated to sex. Allergy is unlikely. No infection can cause symptoms under 24 hr, but if on the verge of STD symptoms (herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia) sex could speed onset. See a doctor ASAP; better safe than sorry and diagnosis is easiet early. ...Read more

Does a sore with red bumps back of throat after oral and little anal with another man resemble STD symtoms. Still there after a month! Strep was negat?

I suggest you get re-evaluated by someone who is knowlegeable in mm sex and be honest about what you were doing and your concerns. ...Read more

How can you reduce redness from an old cold sore?

How can you reduce redness from an old cold sore?

Redness from sore: Redness will usually naturally fade over time as the body does natural healing. If it were me, i'd consider putting a little cosmetic cover on it until it fades on its own. However, some people will try over the counter Mederma for scars to see if it will help. The q-switched pulsed dye laser can take the redness away faster but has the side effect of a temporary bruise and is expensive for that. ...Read more
