std or not?
Somtimes after sex i experience a redness under the foreskin and some "pimples" on the head of my penis. They are itchy but do not turn into blisters and dissappear after a week. Should i be concerned?

Dear concerned,
It does not sound like a STD - could be just due to irritation. However, if you or your partner get a yellow discharge and/or blisters or sores - you should see a doctor.
