Received unprotected oral sex for about 10minutes with a high risk female partner (mid40s) I immediately developed red meatus and I think urethralwart?

Not an STD: No STD can start to cause symptoms immediately; it takes at least a day or two, usually longer. Immediate redness could be due to physical irritation. A wart is impossible; if you have a wart, it isn't from this event; genital warts don't appear sooner than 1-2 months after exposure. See a doctor if your symptoms continue or you otherwise remain concerned. ...Read more

My partner has an ulcer its red on the meatus and a little bit white around what could it be? Could it lead to HIV or something similar? Pls help

Syphilis?: You keep asking the same question repeatedly. See my previous reply; the answers won't change. Some causes of genital ulcer are serious, especially syphilis, and are associated with increased risk of HIV, especially in Mali and elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa. Your partner should keep the appointment with the specialist and you both should be tested for HIV. ...Read more

I notice a small tiny bump at my penis meatus this morning. It show like pin head, red and no discharge. What it could be and what I have to do?

Here are some...: The described scenario suggests that tiny bump likely has existed for a long time, but is just incidentally noticed this morning. Clinically, it may be a skin tag, hyperactive sebaceous gland, some kinds of fibroangioma, etc. Nonetheless, it's hard to give right Dx without a direct look at.

Would internal meatus herpes be easily visible? Have small red pimple inside meatus that Itches all day, no pain. Received unprotected oral. Have UTI

Would internal meatus herpes be easily visible? Have small red pimple inside meatus that Itches all day, no pain. Received unprotected oral. Have UTI

May be herpes: Herpes can initially cause itching. That's often followed by a blister that ulcerates. May cause pain, especially on
urinating. The only way to tell if HSV is to do a swab of some fluid from the sore. Since you were able to see the "pimple" I'm not sure why you are asking if it easily visible. The doctor can use a magnifying glass to view it if needed. Best wishes. Always use a condom. ...Read more

Hi my bf has red on his penis meatus and white around it what could it be? HiV? Dr told him its ulcer not to wory but sent him to a profesor. Pls help

STD? Syphilis?: The most common causes of such problems are syphilis and herpes -- in this case, syphilis seems more likely. But there are many non-STD problems that could also be responsible. HIV doesn't cause this sort of problem, but HIV is most common in people with syphilis or other STDs.
