Help! I slept with my boyfriend while he had impetigo (staph) on his penis.
We didn't realize when we began, but right after intercourse he discovered that the "tender area" had turned into a giant, oozing, sore toward the tip of his shaft. It only took 3 days until I developed the same thing in my groin area. We had it diagnosed at the doctor and they gave us topical antibiotics.
My problem is that I have been feeling "weird" inside. It's not so much the vagina
itself (although it has been slightly itchy), but deep inside, the places he reached during intercourse.
I still often get a little spotting
or soreness after sex, so I know that parts of me were irritated or open when I was exposed to his infection, so the bacteria must have found fertile soil.
Is there any risk that Staph can grow deep inside me? Would it create speed and rashes there too? Or are my symptoms likely something else?
My doctor didn't take my concern seriously and didn't explain.
