Hives or insect bites or allergic reactions last longer than an hour and are itchy. Did exposure to a change in temperature or something that came in contact with your hand play a role? ...Read more

I have these red spots that are temporary on my skin. They are temporary and don't last long. The only sexual contact I have ever had was a hand job?

No STD, no worries: Apparently you are concerned about STD. No worries there. No STDs are transmitted by hand-genital contact, and no STD causes red spots that come and go like this. If the skin looks normal at other times, usually these are areas of increased capillaries in the skin, more visible with increased blood flow. If on penis, often most prominent with sexual arousal. But see MD if you remain concerned. ...Read more

Get seen?: Based on your description, I think your intuitive diagnosis is probably correct. These are likely form of Wart. Other possible diagnosis are much less likely as they occur on palmar surfaces. I suggest you see your primary doctor or a dermatologist and biopsy one of these lesions and then treat the rest with one of a variety of treatments. Then you can stop worrying about them! Get well soon. ...Read more

Had protected sex & have balanitus after putting hand sanitizer on my penis in sept. No blisters. Red spots on head, red Corona/foreskin. Risk of hsv?

Had protected sex & have balanitus after putting hand sanitizer on my penis in sept. No blisters. Red spots on head, red Corona/foreskin. Risk of hsv?

Probably not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause this sort of problem, especially when it lasts several months. This sounds like garden variety fungal (yeast) or nonspecific balanitis, very common in uncircumcised men. Probably not caused by hand sanitizer, even if that was just before the problem started. Retract foreskin and wash 2x daily w/ soap & water. See a dermatologist if it continues after that. ...Read more

Strep throat: Strep usually causes abdominal pain; but if he had a strep test and it is negative, likely the doctor is right and it could be hand-foot-mouth.
