Symptomatic Conditions

Aug 19, 2012

Hello Dr,

Firs of all thank you very much for your time. My concern regards an unprotected oral encounter with a female, I am a male (giving an receiving). I am concerned because I experienced a multitude of symptoms after the encounter, weight loss, persistent nausea, tinea versicolor, angular cheilitis, diarrhea. I had a 16 week ICMA test - negative. Now I have aggressive, clustering folliculitis in my groin. Would this be reason for concern after my 16 week negative? Thank you for your help sir.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Your exposure is not high risk and your testing is negative. I would look for another cause. Scabies can cause an itchy rash of the groin and can be transmitted during sex. See a doctor.


Can it ever be *too late* to treat non-HIV STDs?
Will I get Hiv ?
