Doc please help me. I had oral sex performed on me and about 4 weeks later i had kind of rash on the base of my penis on the foreskin, it didn't hurt it was just itchy. I went for a hiv test after 5 weeks and i came back negative. when i went for the test i had the itch. however i haven't had any other symptoms. should i be really worried about infection.

Dear Worried,
It could be a rash from Candida or a fungal infection. If you don't have any sores or swollen glands, you can use an antifungal cream like Canesten/Mycostatin. The safest is to always use a condom, even with oral sex.
