no burning when i urinate

no pain during intercourse but there is a very slight burning afterward on occasion

It seems more like chapped skin but it is still possible that you could have a STD.

STD is always with unprotected sex.

Try putting some vaseline on you genitalia and wearing loose fitting boxers to decrease the inflammation.

Also bath with a mild baby wash until it heals up.

Some STD's do not have symptoms so it is always good to be tested.

Here is a link that tells all the possible signs and symptoms of STDS.
