alright, heres my story...apologies to all if it seems a bit graphic...about 14 months ago, i had a burning sensation on the tip of my penis and painless bumps on my bladder. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with moluscum contagiosum and was told that it was no big deal and the bumps would go away.(I was also neg. for HIV, Syph., chlamydia). The bumps went away from my bladder as expected and no problems have come from them. However, the burning on my penis has not changed for the last year. In the meantime i got a second opinion and was told it was not herpes but told me to wait to test (i am currently waiting for a test). There seems to be almost an irritated, dry, red assortment of small bumps on my penis(totally diff. looking than my bladder bumps)--They are very small(paranoa?) and have not changed shape(or dissapeared in a long time) nor are they blister looking or pusy. I have not been having any illness(fever and what not). The burning is very frequent(never extremely severe) and mostly occurs when i am driving, drinking alchohol, or right after i have a number 2 in the bathroom(sorry!) I have read on this board for a while and saw that someone had prostitis....could this be what i have, and what exactly are the symptoms of that. Please help.

I don't think you have herpes - but thats for a doc to decide -

How do you "see" bumps on your bladder? Are you using the wrong word?

If you haven't seen a urologist - you may want to - or some specialist.

      @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.

      I asked if it was hsv 1 or 2 and the doctor said it was Hsv2. I’m not sure i just asked him when he was tested last he said this year I said I think we should go test together and he agreed . I’m going to bring it up again cause I really need to know if he gave this to me I wasn’t sure since it was so close to my previous relationship.

      @EssenceL25 then it is all beyond reasonable doubt that the current partner is the source. A 'perfect' fit in terms of timing, symptoms and swab. It may be though that the type is not technically known. Culture swabs are very often not typed and just assumed to be HSV-2 if taken from a genital location. If you received oral sex in the days leading into 7 March then it is 50/50 as to whether this is HSV-1 or HSV-2. You could contact your doctor and confirm if the swab was actually typed (which is a second test where fluorescent antibodies for HSV-1 and HSV-2 are added and see which one 'glows').  If that test wasn't done then you do not know type. If you have oral HSV-1 yourself (cold sores) then this will be HSV-2. Does your partner have oral HSV-1? It is somewhat strange for him not to rush and test - many people have a 'reaction' if they truly do not know their status and have concerns that you infected them etc. (not initially rational of course). This indicates he may know his status - or maybe he just isn't simply the sharpest tool in the shed!?

      I had flu like symptoms and ulcers on my vagina . They did a culture and I tested positive for hsv2. I asked my partner to get tested he agreed but I’m not sure if he will cause he hasn’t said anything else about it.
