Hello doctor,

I had sex with a prostitute last week. I used a condom, but I played her vagina with my hand. I came back home that night and had sex with my wife again. I also played her vagina with my hand. Next day, she had her periods and felt itchy at her vagina (I think genital herpes). So she scratched her vagina, and it became a damaged spot under the vagina. But it is better now and is about to heal. Is this STD or not?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It may be normal, but I cannot deny from STD (sexually transmitted disease), and it may be herpes and vaginitis too.

1. Apply Betnovate-N locally up to deep in the vagina, after proper wash two times a day till required.

2. Ciplox TZ (Ciprofloxacin, Tinidazole) two times a day after food for three days.

3. Candid veginal tablet at night for six nights.It will be fine.

And it means you believe in polygamy, which is one day become dangerous. Be loyal, and you can use her ten times a day. So she will remain healthy so as you. If she has vaginitis, you also can get the infection.
