| | Scared: Can I Catch Syphilis/STD's by Kissing Someone's Skin?
I have a problem: I discovered a pimple-like thing on my belly.
I wonder if I can catch any STD's if I have skin contact or if I kiss someone's skin who has STD's.
I am worried about 1 pimple-sized rash/eruption that I have on my belly. It has slightly yellowish color, but it's not like a "usual pimple", although it's strikingly similar.
I cannot "squash" it out, it's been about 10 days and it's there.
Doesn't hurt, it has the shape of a pimple, only it's not red, skin colored with slight yellowish tone.
It's small, about 2 millimiters wide, smaller than a "usual pimple".
About 3 months ago I had protected sex (with condom, no fluid exchange) with a person who had strange skin-colored swollen rashes on her body (long, worm-like things), about 4 cms long. Only two of these rashes/swellings were present on her body.
They looked like burns. Swollen exactly like burns.
I thought it's a birthmark, it was dark.
There was no fluid exchange, but I had full skin contact and even touched the area with the rash on her body. I did in fact kiss her skin, but didn't kiss her mouth, had not contact with genital area.
Basically it's skin-mouth, skin-skin contact.
That was about 3 months ago and now I kept looking at this pimple-like thing on my mid-abdomen.
It's true I've only been examining my body for "suspect" elements since I had contact with that person, but I'm unaware of this being there earlier..
I hope it ain't something bad.
But I'm as scared as hell and need quick advice. It will take some time until I get to my doctor (unfortunately I have to pass several doctors until I get to the specialist).
