Q. My boyfriend and I (both gay) recently had oral sex. I didn’t insert any of his genitals inside me but he cummed on both my hand & on my face and it started to burn. When he cummed on my hand I had what appeared to look like red spots all over my hand which frightened me. I went to wash it off as soon as he cummed on me and my face was red and tingled for a few days. 2 days later I started feeling tingling sensation around my lips and then developed like a rash on right lip (this went away after a day but then came back slightly and then again went away). Then I had the rash reappear again but on the other side of my lip (this too went away after a day). The spots on my hand went away after an hour but it still very much frightened me as I’ve never had this happen before. I’m scared that he might have given me an STI or an STD.
A. What you are describing sounds like an allergic type of reaction. The other thing to consider when there is a rash is herpes . But, herpes lesions generally appear 3-6 days after contact with someone who has herpes. The lesions are very painful. It sounds very unlikely that the red spots you describe are herpes.
One other bit of information. An STI (sexually transmitted infection) is the same as a STD (sexually transmitted disease)
If this occurs again make an appointment to be seen by your primary care provider or Corner Health Center
