Hello doctor,

I always had tiny and small bumps on my penis head, from the time I started noticing my penis. But today I saw some white and tiny dot like bumps. Is it any kind of STD? I had intercourse with a sex worker five weeks ago. It was protected and I kept checking my condom after every three or four strokes. I am totally aware of STD and HIV risk and I used a branded condom non-expired one. I stretched it hard to see for any holes or tears and did not see any. When I tried to insert, it broke and at that very second, I heard a popping sound and was out of her. It will be about one or two seconds and not more than that. I am not sure did it go in or not but I did not feel anything when the condom broke.

I went to the doctor HIV specialist and she told me I do not have any risk for HIV. I would like to have your view on this. I have attached the picture.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, there is no risk of HIV. Secondly, the tiny bump can be a healed ulcer. Third, to be honest, a condom will not protect from HIV. The size of the virus is far small than microscope holes in the condom. Condom promotion is done to prevent STD (sexually transmitted disease) which may cause an increased chance of HIV transmission.


Investigations to be done:

Test for TPPA (Treponema pallidum particle agglutination assay).

Treatment plan:

Injection Benzathine penicillin 2.4 mu deep intramuscular.

Preventive measures:

Stay away from unprotected sexual activity.
