    Hi briski,

    You may be correct in assuming it's herpes. Were the lesions painful? Did you have any tests to confirm the diagnosis?

    I would also suggest you get tested for other STDs, including syphilis and HIV. Secondary stage syphilis can occasionally look something similar- condyloma lata.

      If you haven't taken the syphilis medication properly, then the lumpy rash may indicate the infection has recurred. You should try to get an injection of benzathine penicillin 2.4 megaunits; this is far more effective than pills!

      Syphilis is potentially a serious condition if left untreated, so it's important that you do your best in eradicating the infection as soon as possible! One dose of benzathine at this stage is curative, so please go back to the clinic and show them the genital lumps and the thread to this online post.
