Answering your questions, no I haven't experienced any of those symptoms, however I did had unprotected intercourse. Do you think it looks like that?

How many days after the unprotected sex did you get this rash?

Did you have any medication before the onset of this rash?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
3 days after but I was on vacations so I'm also thinking about the chance that maybe are bed bugs bites from the hotel?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 2 years ago.

Yes , this can be very much like bed bug bites at the hotel , sharing of towels.

What is the level of itching that you are getting?
