Does my condition sound like an STD?


Q: Do I have an STD? I noticed I have a few scabs on my penis that do not resemble an STDs I have seen. A week earlier I had sex for a long period of time which typically could cause some soreness or even cuts. I don't have any other symptoms either, there's no pain or itchiness which makes me think it can't be herpes. I do have a weird rash on my butt cheeks that is kind of itchy but I don't know if the two are related(I am a straight man and do not engage in sexual contact that would include my butt). At this point I have been putting ointment on it and they are healing up.

Symptoms:  Scabs, no pain, no itchiness, rash
