hi
it doesnt seem to be a STI.It seems to be an allergic rash that is in its early stages. apply local creams,take anti inflammatory and anti histaminic tablets. Avoid friction or exposure of the concerned ares with irritant materials.
These should show signs of improvement in 4-5 days.
If ,there is no improvement,consult a dermatologist.
thanks

HI
IT CAN BE STI BUT THE RASH CHARACTER IS NOT A TYPICAL OF STI IT CAN BE A SKIN INFECTION OR DERMATITIS. GET YOUR BLOOD CHECKED FOR STI. APPLICATION OF OLIVE OIL AND STEROID BASED CREAMS OVER THE RASH MAY HELP RESLOVE THE RASH.

hello there
STI-less likely. Seems to be a boil or furuncle that may be secondary to a insect bite or may be allergy to something. take vitamin tablets. Apply castor oil,local soothing creams and wait for 5 days. see the improvement. if it worsens then you can consult a skin specialist

Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
This does not to me like a STI but probably allergic eczema if you Dont have other symptoms related to you vagina or fever…
you need to wash the area with soap to remove any traces of the chemical. Do not use any cream on boils and clean with water only.
For dry eruptions, apply a hand lotion 2 times a day. In case it turns itchy, you could use 1% hydrocortisone cream, 4 times in a day.
