Hi Anonymous,

Are you sexually active? Have you had unprotected sex? If so, and you suspect that you may have a sexually transmitted disease, please schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. 

An irritation does not necessarily mean that it is an STD, it could be from a condom if you have a latex allergy or even from not removing all of the soap when you shower. If it gets worse or you suspect that it may be an STD, see your doctor. 

Best wishes,

Rosa
