Question about possible sores on genitals.

Recommended Posts


I had an encounter with someone I didn't know well about 6 weeks ago, and have been concerned about possibly contracting herpes from them, for a few different reasons, but my main concern right now is something I saw on my penis the other day. I have been checking down there quite regularly lately, due to my concerns, and the other day I saw 3 little reddish patches on the shaft of my penis, about an inch below the head. They were close together and looked pretty much like a rash. As much as I hate to say it, I had masturbated a little while before, so my first thought was I got the skin a little raw from that, because I have done that before, but it kind of seemed in the wrong spot for that. Of couse, I was looking closely at them, stretching the skin a little, so I could run my finger over the area and feel for any kind of bump. There wasn't any bump, and so I put peroxide on all 3 spots, and it foamed a little,but of course it would on any raw skin. Each spot got a little white spot in the middle, like healing skin does when it gets peroxide on it. A little later, each red spot had a spot in the middle of it that looked a little shiny and wet, but any open skin will look like that as it sends that clear stuff to the wound. I put some antibiotic ointment on it for the night, which made it appear worse at first, but in the morning, they looked much better, one being almost completely gone, and the other 2 with a very tiny, thin scab. Today, there is basically only 2, and they look like they are healing to the point that tomorrow they may be hardly even there, and a couple more days, I bet they will be completely gone. It never hurt, or burned, or oozed any fluid, and they didn't raise up, or crust over like so many of the pictures I've seen on the internet. My question is, does this sound like it could be herpes outbreak? If it was, it would be my first one, and I've read that the first one is usually the most severe, and I've read that it's usually blisters, that hurt, and break open and scab over. Also read that they stick around a bit. Also heard that herpes doesn't always follow the rules, so I'm just confused. Any opinions?Thanks.

Wanted to edit the post, but saw no option to do that. Anyway, I bri=ought up messing with these 3 sores in my first post to say that I may have irrititated an already slightly irritated spot and made it slight worse myself, just to clarify.

      Hello.... hope this message finds you well... Pay attention to your diet , there's a young lady on YouTube called Laureen HD... follow her sh is awsome...  Doctors never told me about diet part of it... so peanuts and other junk food I love had me experiencing minor outbreaks which take forever to heal , I'm not on suppression med which I decided just to do... makes no sense to take 12 natural pills when u can take 1. ..  watch your coffee,  sugar and nuts intake ( no pun intended) The after care remedies are good.

      Yes. I have had good experience with CBD oil over the past few months. Here is my "routine". When I notice the first signs of an outbreak, pop the blisters with a tissue, then apply 1 drop of 10% CBD oil rubbing it into the popped blisters for ten seconds or so. Then apply another drop twice a day (morning and evening) for as many days as needed.

      Healing shows progress even overnight. Usually the redness is gone within 1 or 2 days, and the blisters are tiny holes (hard to even see) within 2 to 3 days. Totally healed within 2 to 4 days.

      This has been the fastest healing of the many other approaches I have tried over the years.

      Ben 21 yaşındayım ve 7 ay önce herpes ile enfekte oldum. sevgilimden enfekte Herpes ağzında vardı, ama iyileşmişti ve bir oral seks yapmıştı. Bu enfekte. İkimizin de bir şoku vardı. Bu şekilde enfekte olduğunu bilmiyorduk. İlişkiye 7 ay geçti, ama cinsel organları bulaşmadı. Sürekli üzülüyorum ve bir saldırı geçiriyorum. Her gün ağlarım. hayatım mahvolmuş .. artık yaşamak istemiyorum. Bu gençlerle yıllarca nasıl yaşayacağımı bilmiyorum. Sadece ölmek ve ondan kurtulmak istiyorum Çok üzgünüm ve şanssızım .. Yazım hataları için üzgünüm çünkü bu bir antropoloji değil
