Rash after sex
Posted on: 05/24/2007
Every time I have sex with my girlfriend my penis and genitals get a red rash on them. It itches and is flaky. Also sometimes there are small cuts after sex. The only time my penis gets irritated is after sex. Is this some type of yeast infection or is there not enough lubrication? VERY CONCERNED! PLEASE HELP
Could be either, and the best thing I can suggest is that you use a condom with a couple drops of a water-based lubricant on the outside, and your girlfriend have an exam at Planned Parenthood. If you are already using condoms, it could be a latex allergy, so try using a polyurethane condom, or a female condom. An exam might be a good idea, too.
