Hi DRI am 35, ulcers not painful unless I touch, I am not diabetic. Had unprotected sex last week, no lymph node swelling, never occurred before. only had some ulcers in mouth some time ago. Do not have fever and no problems with passing urine.

Genital ulcers after unprotected sexual contact could be an STD(sexually transmitted disease) and needs to be evaluated and treatment started. Usually a course of antibiotics which covers most of the STDs are given after taking blood for necessary tests.

You should see your doctor who can start you on antibiotics for the condition. Local ointments may not be that effective if it is an STD.

If you have any doubts please let me know.
