Engaged in risky sexual activity 4 days ago. Have experienced itchy genitals since then. Yesterday I noticed a swollen lymph node (and a smaller bump near it). Today I noticed that I have a rash / cut of some sort on the under side of my genital area. Please see attached images for further information. Please let me know my STI / STD risk. Thank you.

Thank you for posting your query at

I can understand your concern.

This seems to be candidial intertrigo, which is a yeast infection caused more often due to conditions of heat and humidity.

It doesn't seem to be a std right now.

Application of clotrimazole cream twice a day would be helpful.

Please let me know if you have any queries.


Patient replied :

Are the symptoms congruous with the std Chancroid? My sexual activity was with a sex worker in Mexico.

Hello again,

Thanks for your reply.

It doesn't look like chancroid at present atleast.

It looks like a candidial intertrigo.
