Hello doctor,

I am a 24 yr old female of Indian descent. I have no history of any chronic disease, and I am currently taking no medication. Yesterday morning I woke up with rashes all over my upper legs and butt. The night before I had sex with my fiance and afterward I did not take a shower. The only explanation I could find is that I am allergic to the semen because of the area with red bumps that itch correspond to where the cum had made contact with, my lower buttocks and upper legs.

I do not see what else it could be. Some had fallen on the sheet which I slept on overnight, which could have made things worse. I changed the layer yesterday morning. I do not see what else it could be because I have been anywhere strange lately nor eaten any something different. Please advise me on what I should do.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

So for the rash purpose, you could use some antiallergics like Levocetirizine or CPM, but you should think one thing that if you have been allergic to semen, then you are having sex since two years right. And allergies do not develop overnight. It has to have a history. Notice more around the surrounding, your food, your clothes, your washing powder, etc. for allergens. Also, send me a photograph of the rash so that I can differentiate it accurately with other conditions.


Treatment plan:

Tablet Levocetirizine 1-0-0
Tablet CPM (Chlorpheniramine) 0-0-1 for five days.

Regarding follow up:

Follow with a photo as soon as possible so that we can rule out more allergens.
