Hi...sorry for the late response - I was stuck with an emergency case please. These look like genital herpes.

I need some more information please.

1. Was there any history of sexual exposure?

2. Is there more or itching or more of pain?

3. Are you running temperature?

4. Did you check yourself for STD screening - and if so - when?

Please get back to me with the above information so that I can guide you better.

No not that I’m aware of. No itching or pain, no fever, and i haven’t been screened yet.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
What should i do?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Also I’ve been on here before and asked the same question. That it was sebaceous skin cells. Could it be that?
Dermatologist: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
I do not know how it was last time.
But...now it doesn't look like sebaceous gland enlargement please.I suggest that you get tested yourself for all STDs.For Chlamydia you should get tested after 5 days.
For Gonorrhea after 6 days.
For Syphilis after 6 weeks.
For Hepatitis B after 6 weeks.
For Hepatitis C after 9 weeks.For HIV you can go ahead with a Combo test of HIV I & II antibodies along with P24 antigen essay at the end of 4 weeks. The other option is going ahead with an early detection test of RNA detection after 11th day from the exposure.This is based on the incubation periods of these STDs.Hope I am clear and you get yourself tested for are screened for the above STDs.The time period I have mentioned is from the last suspected sexual exposure." I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!

Dermatologist: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
Sorry for the omission...it is 6 weeks from time of exposure.

It’s just confusing because these bumps do not itch or hurt. Is that normal with genital herpes?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Also i was at the ER on Friday and they did blood work on me, they said everything looked good in my blood so would it have shown up there? Or would the doctor not be looking for that therefore not knowing
Dermatologist: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

Hi...The normal blood work they do my not include the STD screening please.

I am suggesting in your good will that you should get yourself screened.

But I am not in a position to say why they have not suggested you go ahead with STD screening.

Did they see the lesions and then specifically ask you about sexual exposure and even then say that it is only sebaceous glands?

No just that is what it looked like
Dermatologist: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

Hi...I am giving my professional opinion please and I have given that in all your good faith in me in mind.

My suggestion is that you need a screening please.

I do not know why after seeing these lesions in genital area they have not enquired about the sexual contact.

I am sorry to say that I do not judge my professional colleague's opinion. I can only give mine.

But I again urge you that - please go ahead with the above screening as suggested.

Another option is going back to the emergency room and asking specifically quoting my opinion there.

Best regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
