Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have got red rashes on my corona. I have done unprotected sex 15 days before and my girlfriend is saying that she is still a virgin because we have not done intercourse properly. I just inserted and took out my penis.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the images (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is herpes genitalis which is an STD (sexually transmitted disease).You need to take oral antiviral medications. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent. Tablet Acyclovir 400 mg three times a day after (breakfast- lunch- dinner) for seven days.Tablet Rantac (Ranitidine)150 mg twice daily before meal for seven days. Apply T-Bact cream (Mupirocin Topical) twice daily. Avoid sexual contact. If your partner has similar complaints, then her treatment is also important.Get blood test for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus).

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
