WE ARE IN PAIN 

Question

My boyfriend has a big  pimple under his manhood.  Quite often, blood drips from it.  I also have abnormal pain in my  private part, waist and stomach.  What must we do?  ANONYMOUS, BRITS 

Answer

Thank you for being very concerned about your sexual health. It sounds very much like you and your boyfriend have a sexually transmitted infection (STI). You are probably infecting each other all the time, especially if you are not using condoms.  I urge you both to get to a clinic and get treatment as soon as possible. If it is a bacterial STI, it can be treated really quickly.
