Avatar n tn Using condoms just before ejaculation doesn't offer much more protection for anything, and its defeating the purpose of using them. Herpes is spread by skin to skin contact, and condoms offer about a 50% reduction in transmission if used from start to finish - as in the condom goes on before any contact has happened, and don't come off until after he ejaculates. There isn't any risk from semen unless the semen comes into contact with an outbreak, and oral hsv2 is rare.

Avatar n tn There are several causes of white spots on the skin. You would have to consult a skin specialist to find out the definite diagnosis and rule out tinea versicolor, pityriasis alba, vitiligo, lichen sclerosis et atrophicus and secondary to healing process after an injury.

Avatar f tn For the past five months, I've noticed these redish brown spots that have been apearing, there along my bra line, on my shoulders and now I notice them starting on my arm, they seem to have a dry flakiness to them and look almost like a scar, slightly shiny. they itch sometimes, they turn red when I shower or if I'm running. I have one on my ankle, it's been there for a year, but I never thought anything of it. What is it and how do I get rid of it?
Avatar m tn I think you should see a doctor. Any discolored itchy skin is worth a diagnosis. It doesn't sound like warts to me (or any other STD), but it is certainly a skin condition that you should have a doctor look at. I wouldn't be too concerned though, whatever it is, it probably isn't serious.
