Sexually Transmitted Diseases/small raised watery lump just under the skin


I recently had sex with a female about two weeks ago unprotected.... i recently got tested at MEPs a little over a month ago, ...she tested positive for Chlamydia from someone else...I was treated two days ago and was tested again....yesterday I noticed some skin was raised just along the scar of my circumcision...  I had  masterbated the night before... I'm waiting on my test results but a week is taking too Long to get here... but my question is, would that have anything to do with the Chlamydia or masterbation? The raised area was small and the same color as my skin...I also didn't show any symptoms before I was treated for the Chlamydia....


That sounds more like an abrasion burn from masturbation. You should be using a water or silicone based lubricant during sexual activity to prevent inflammation and irritation. Chlamydia typically doesn't affect the skin as much as the internal infection and it normally takes 2-3 weeks for your immune system to react to the bacterium from entering your system. So if you haven't had discharge from your penis or an itching or burning sensation yet then I doubt you have much to worry about!
