Genital herpes? Ingrown hair? Boil? Friction rash?

Posted , 4 users are following.

My bf had a huge ingrown hair, or what i thought was one (I swear I saw the hair in there), at the base of his shaft. He says it was caused by using a pump. It was so big that it caused a lump in his testicle. We had sex, a lot. Oral, anal, vaginal, with toys & without because we were high & not thinking. 3 days later, i wake up with every muscle in my body sore & achy, a throat infection (no swab taken) and what looks like hair follicles with hard crystals forming, the skin around one side of the pubic area red. 5 days after sex, the skin is red and sensitive, still only on one side but new "blemishes" pop up, the hair follicles are acting as if there's ingrown hairs (pressure & a small amount of puss releases), very tender. The throat infection is going away after being on antibiotics for almost 2 full days but the rash/ingrown follicles are still popping up. I have pictures of his & mine problem areas but can't figure out how to post them.

    Hi E, Sounds like your BF has a sebaceous Cyst if its that big, tell him to see his doctor ASAP

    After all the ways you was having sex, its not surprising you have something and if you was going form anal to vaginal a great way to catch something.

    And do hope all his or your sex toys was super clean, its best to give them a good wash after each time you use them.

    If you had a real good close shave, this could be your downfall you should always just shave the way your hair grows downwards, and leave it at that, it stops ingrowing hairs which I think is your main problem.

    As for your throat, could be from oral sex, if it was from after anal?

      As far as the cyst on him, can that be contagious? I had propped my self up on my forearms probably touching it, or very close to it. A few days later I had a very similar, but not as big "abscess" on my arm, and two in other areas. The doctor prescribed bactrim (sulfa) and they are clearing up.

      The other issue...I haven't shaved all the way for quite some time. I went back to the doctor. He did not swab or take blood (pc doc) but just by looking said it was genital herpes. I'm now taking valtrex. Throat infection is gone.
