Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Thanks. How long have you had these and when was your last episode of unprotected sex?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
This showed up yesterday after having protected sex.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Just one more question--you never had anything like these before?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I've occasionally after having sex for a few days. It has usually gone away as normal irritation that subsides
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
OK--sorry but I just wanted to get all the information first. These do look like Fordyce spots although it's a little quick for them to appear. Certainly doesn't look like either herpes or venereal warts and it's too soon after sex for either of those anyway. These may, like the previous ones, fade soon but if they don't, still nothing serious and they may even be just an allergic reaction to the condom. The treatment, if they are persistent Fordyce spots, is tretinoin cream.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
So, you wouldn't worry about anything std related? I usually find this related to condom use near the base where the hair meets as I usually don't have this issue when sex is unprotected with a girlfriend
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
No, I'm not at all worried about any STD--most likely this is condom related
