I shaved around my anus about a week ago and had protected sex a 2 days after, with a lot of oral stimulation from my partner, three days later I noticed a lot of small lesions a lot like like rasor burns but Im wondering why they appeared only now. Please help.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Razor bumps can appear as the hair starts to grow back. Given the time-frame you are describing, it sounds like that is all it is. I would suggest using an exfoliant in the shower to help with the razor bumps.



Very serious question
I kissed a HIV+ guy
