I am currently on a trip to Thailand and stupidly had unprotected sex with a lady. I scrubbed pretty vigorously afterwards but I am now concerned I have an STI. I cannot be sure as there is some irritation but that may be from scrubbing...
I have a sense of some low grade burning around the foreskin but again I am not sure that this is not irritation from using soap to scrub with The last thing I want to do is pass this around if I have anything so please help...
Thank you

So Randy,

First of all, I hate to tell you this but no matter how hard you scrub, no matter how many times you bathe and no matter how much soap you use, you're putting yourself at risk for STI's if you practice unsafe sex. Nothing can be ascertained from these pictures because STI's do not manifest physical symptoms until the first stage and you haven't gone through the prodromal stage of any disease yet for that to happen. Your penis is red looking because you just scrubbed the hell out of it! Antibodies for any STI that you  may have contracted wont even show up in your body until 3-4 weeks from now at which point you'll want to get tested for anything at your local primary care physician. Until then take care and wrap it up!

Best wishes,
