Hi, the other night I went to a party and got kind of drunk. well I did some stuff with this guy that I didnt really know, we didn't have sex, we made out and he fingered me (it was an awkward situation so it was like for a minute). And later on people were saying that he had herpes, but then they said that they were joking but I'm really not sure. What are the major symptoms and how long does it take for the first symptoms to appear? Because I have a few of them I think, like itching (which is because I currently have a yeast infection) and I had the chills yesterday morning I kept on shaking and under my arms are pretty sore, I also have kind of run down feelings but I just took an amoxicillin pill and I don't really feel crappy anymore. Oh and can you contract herpes if the person was not currently having an outbreak? If you kno anything could you PLEASE tell me because I'm really scared that I might have it!

I think your risk is very low... unless he had oral sores. Don't go crazy looking for something that isn't there -

take it easy - practice safe sex and pay attention to your body - but don't obsess. If you form a blister of some sort - go see the doc to get it tested - do not stare at the mirror waiting for it to come.... you'll kill yourself with worry.

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
