Two nights ago, I had protected sex. The condom was so tight

Customer Question

Two nights ago, I had protected sex. The condom was so tight that there was a red pressure mark (almost like a ring, but it didn't go all the way around) on the shaft of my penis afterwards. This morning, I found three bumps exactly where the mark was made from the condom. Could it be an allergic reaction from the latex or from the pressure, or should I be concerned about it being herpes?

This is Dr. David

this sounds like pressure ulcer caused by the tight condom

if you had latex allergy, this would cause rash all over your penis

it would be too coincidental to be herpes. herpes tend to cause very painful ulcers in the genital areas like cold fever blisters in the mouth or lip area.

avoid sex for now.

you can use some neosporin on the area to help the area heal.
