Hi, I am an American Board Certified Doctor and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

Yes you can certainly try now Omeprazole until you see your doctor. Omeprazole is overall safe and also should not cause any major interactions with the other medications you are already on. And Omeprazole is excellent for heart burn too.

Once again to your main question, yes you can certainly try Omeprazole now, which is overall safe & effective.

Yes, men can get yeast, but almost nil chnaces if you have protected sex

But this is not a yeast presentation what I see in the image

You need to to consult a dermatologist at the earliest to see if you need a biopsy for knowing what exactly it is is

Can be herpes

But seems like not sexually related as well, can be some type of contact dermatitis, eczema

Hope the information helps
