    Trichomaniasis is a sexually-transmitted parasite, so no, you couldn't have just developed it on your own. If you weren't sexually active prior to this boyfriend, chances are you got it from him. Apparently guys don't always have symptoms, so he may not even know he has it. He'll have to go to a doctor about it since you've been diagnosed.

    Both of you should be treated at the same time and abstain from sexual activity until any symptoms you have go away. Unfortunately, the only way it's going to go away is if you (and he) receive treatment. If he doesn't get treated, he'll probably just give it right back to you.
