Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) do not manifest as skin allergy; skin manifestation s of STIs, particularly syphilis or human papilloma virus (HPV), are more like well defined skin lesions. In any case, you will need to test for the major STIs (HIV, hepatitis B and C) within the next couple of weeks since you have had unprotected sex. Your treating physician will then decide if there is a need to initiate post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) treatment.
