I changed the doctor and he also given anti fungal tablets and creams and everything was ok but suddenly the penis head skin started peeling off and new skin was there but it hurts a bit because the new penis head skin was a bit ra8w.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You did everything right with protecting yourself in this situation. Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off. Also if lubricant is used it must be water based. The important thig to remember is that there are other infections out there that you need to be cautious of as well besides HIV. They are also easier to get than HIV. It sounds likje you may have herpes but it is not for me to say as you need to see your healthcare provider for evaluation and treatment for this. HIV is low on the risk but you should be tested for this as well. The guidelines for testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks and the again at 90 days. As long as there are noother exposures during this time the results are considered conclusive.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
