My brother is in trouble..
Hi, okay, so my 24 year old brother just told me tonight that he thinks he may have contracted herpes (i don't know why he tells me these things.. but whatever, I just want to help him), from sexual intercourse with someone he didn't even know. She said she was on the pill so he didn't use a condom. I have already given him heck about all that, I just need to know if anyone else has had or heard of this before. He said he checked it out (Herpes) on the internet and most outbreaks happen 2-10 days after sex. But he hasn't been with anyone else but her since the end of february. I think he counted 26 days since sleeping with her. He said that yesterday everything was completely fine, he didn't feel a thing but tonight when he was in the shower he lifted his foreskin to clean himself and he said he felt some stinging. Once again-I don't know why I have to know all these details, I'm just trying to be a supportive sister. He said he examined himself and he saw these little red bumps under his foreskin. He knows already that he has to go to the doctor, but he's really worried that he actually contracted a STD. I told him that it might be something not as serious like a reaction to something, or maybe he hadn't completely rinsed himself from the soap in the shower from other days, but he's paranoid-and with good reason with all the diseases floating around between everyone. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be? Does it sound like and STD?
