Im 17. Yeah well a week and a half ago I recieved oral sex from some girl. Day or two after I started to hear rumors about her having herpes and stuff, even though she says she doesnt. Several days ago I started to notice a small red rash on my penis along with really small bumps. I then noticed yesterday it got bigger and now its basically covering one part of my penis, and is starting to get itchy. I basically know that I have it, since the symptoms match up with what iv read.

And now im just so depressed. I just started going out with this girl who i really like (not the one i got it from) and now this happens. Im probably going to go to a doctor soon... but as for right now... im really depressed about it... have cried over it, blah blah. So yeah, what can I expect from here... like in the next few days, then weeks, etc.

thanks alot guys.

Hi SSHBK,

Sorry to hear about what you are experiencing right now in light of your situation. It would have been a good idea if you had gotten in to see the doc by now for a swab culture. At least it may have been possible to give you an accurate diagnosis if that were done early in the game and you might have had some answers by the end of the week.

If they do a swab when you get in to see him just remember that if it comes back negative it could be that it just missed being able to detect any viral load and you will have to wait for another outbreak to be swabbed.

If thats the case you could have the blood test and same goes there. If you do it now it can come back negative because it takes time for you to build antibodies but at least you would know that you didn't have it before. Blood tests are accurate between 12-16 weeks for most people.

If hsv is what you are dealing with here and the rash starts developing into blisters, it's not going to be a picnic. You can dab some peroxide or alcohol on them to help dry them out, (warning, it burns) but when they reach a scabbing stage, keep them dry and don't pick at them. They will be on the way out at this point.

Please be sure to practice good hygiene while you have sores and wash your hands thoroughly any time you touch the area or you could spread it to other areas of your body.

Good luck with the doctors visit and I'll be hoping for you that it isn't hsv. If you need some help, let us know.

Thanks to both of you above me ^

Ok, question now.

I first started noticing a small red blotch about a week ago, and then on Sunday I noticed how it spread alot, to both the head and shaft. It's Wed now, and nothing has really changed. What should I expect is the coming days?

      Hi, I have the exact same thing and have been to a gp and sexual health clinic and it hasn’t been resolved. Did you get any answers?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
