    Possibility of Syphilis infection through food leftover...

    Hello, Recently our family hired a new live-in housekeeper and everything seemed fine. Her initial tests showed no positive results when she arrived but after a few days I took for testing again and the results came back positive for Syphilis. By that time she had been living with us for 3 days. The problem occurred when my wife ate a piece of cake the housekeeper had been eating thinking it was mine. Now we are all terrified. How high is our risk and when would be the best time to get tested? T....

    Herpes pain/irritation help

    I went to the hospital yesterday thinking I had bad hemorrhoids. But he says it’s herpes (I also have some sores that I thought were ingrown hairs) ... so I’m on a medication 3x a day for 10 days and I take ibuprofen but is there anything else I can do to soothe the sores? It’s so bad it hurts to pass a stool and I’ve had bloody stools. I’ve been taking warm baths when I can. But I work 9-10 hr shifts a day.

    Help! Not sure what this is.

    I found out my partner has been sleeping with multiple people. I tested positive for Chlamydia and took the antibiotics. He had something called mycoplasma and I’m being treated for that, but never confirmed. I was also taking the gel for BV. I’ve currently been itchy and now noticed these bumps. Is it herpes? They look like papules inside my vagina.

    Syphilis and Skin-to-Skin Transmission

    I read syphilis can be transmitted from "skin to skin contact," yet the number of infections is far lower than other STIs. One source suggested a lesion must come in contact with an open wound for skin to skin transmission and skin-to-skin transmission are rare. How accurate are these assessments?

    Burning Penis?

    I have had burning in the urethra for 3-4 years. Wrinkled/Flaky red glans and the right testicle is slightly inflamed. Any urine test I do comes back negative. I get cycles of cloudy urine. Masturbation irritates the situation. I have been to a urologist and he could not seem to find any issue. Any suggestions?

    Clogged oil gland?

    Hello, 38 yr old female. I noticed while washing a small hard lump on my labia minora. The skin when stretched looks to have small glands all over (the small flaps that sort of hang down if you will). One of the glands is about pin sized and hard to the touch. Online surf leans toward blocked oil gland/cyst. No pain, no redness, no itching. Skin is same color. How long is it safe to wait to see if it resolves on own? Any thoughts on what it might be or if it could a cause for concern? Its very hard....

    Genital warts?

    I had unprotected sex less than a week ago with my boyfriend and I’m only just now noticing a tiny lump located along the line of my labia minora. I found it yesterday when accidentally bumping the area because it kind of hurt when bumped so I checked it out. It was a dark reddish color yesterday but since this morning it’s turned into a more whiteish color. It doesn’t hurt at all unless I apply pressure to it, and nothing itches down there either. It’s just one very small lump, not a cluster. I....
