Had sex-Balanitis on penis head, non painful white spots on tonsils won't go away, red spots look like molluscum base of penis. 3.5 weeks total. HIV?

Get examined: None of this suggests any STD, unless you have molluscum contagiosum. If you do, maybe from some other exposure; 3.5 weeks probably is too soon. The chance of HIV is low and your symptoms don't suggest it. But since you're worried, and have possible MC, you need to see a doctor or clinic for personal exam and STD/HIV testing. You'll never get final answers online or by self testing. Good luck. ...Read more

My daughter has a few subtle red spots that are a bit dry next to the corner of her mouth. They don' t bother her at all. Should I use hydrocortizone?

Ok to try the H.C.: If some spots or bumps around the lips don't have pain, they are less likely to be an infection. Hydrocortisone cream or ointment is fine to try, 3 times a day, for 3-5 days.
