Using a condom protected you against HIV and many STD's. The only thing I am concerned about is the anal and penile itching. If you've been infected with Gonorrhea or Chlamydia in your rectum they can cause itching, and if infected in your penis, they can cause burning, discharge, and could also cause an itching sensation.
You could test for all STD's just to be certain, or talk to your doctor to discuss other possible causes. Please note, if you are testing for Chlamydia or Gonorrhea in the rectum they'll need to do a rectal swab. Both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are site specific infections. The testing must be done on each spot that is suspected to be infected i.e. urethra, rectum, or throat.
I hope this helps.
