Skin issue: If none of what your described was present before the intercourse and appeared after, I would think that the intercourse caused it. I don't think of any sexually transmitted disease if you discovered it right after the intercourse. It sounds like an intercourse related trauma. ...Read more

Consult Dermatology: Most common cause of this is an irritant or allergic contact dermatitis. Underlying irritant dermatitis is often a loss of the barrier protection function of the skin, which in turn is often caused by prolonged water contact.
