Is it Herpes??

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody , Im new here and really worried about my condition.

I've been having very small cuts on the shaft of my penis. They come and go randomly and usually feel itchy when appearing. sometimes the skin of my penis goes dry and it starts shedding. I had sex with a stranger about 5 years ago (protected), but freaked out and went to see every doctor in town, however, they did not check for herpes and only used a magnifying glass to check me. These cuts disappeared for a while and I found a girl that I love with all my heart. I decided to stop worrying after seeing 3 doctors and I started to have unprotected sex with my girl. I've been faithful to her all this time but the cuts are appearing now and they seem to itch more. Im really worried about this, im afraid it could be herpes and that I might have passed it to her. however, she has not shown any sympton or problem since we started dating almost 3 years ago.

really hope you could help and if you could tell me if this sounds like herpes. the cuts are on the side and top.

thanks so much for your help

Does not sound like herpes

I have never heard of cuts being associated with herpes. So I don't believe you are a member of our 'club', sorry.

But to be sure you should have a western blot blood test done. That is the most accurate test available for herpes. That will tell you if you have it or not and what type it is if you do.

Good luck!

JB

thanks for your reply. I scheduled a meeting with my doctor for next week and hopefully it is nothing. I always get this irritation or cuts on my penis' skin on the same place, it comes and go, but usually feels very itchy and/or like tingling sensation. I've never had any blisters or anything like those horrible images on the internet, and my girlfriend has never had any symptoms, however I am still worried it could be something and hopefully they can perform some tests. Its not good to feel this anxiety, thanks again for your words:grin:

      I had my first outbreak in June, very close to the date of your post. I healed up before the end of the month and it was about as many as you mentioned. I have gHSV1. The test was done on the left under the head of my penis because I had mostly healed by the time I made it to the doctor. There has been pain ever since in that one spot, but there hasn’t been any outbreaks. There are visible red spots that seem to linger forever. I’m a little concerned about this. Overall I’m lu it it is bite type 2 and I am doing my best to manage it. I hope you are doing well also since June. My wife and I (who I think I got it from) use condoms to prevent her from contracting it genitally. It’s a much more serious problem for women than men, as it can be internal for them and affect childbirth. Condoms are critical until a cure comes around, and there looks to be promising research. Hope you are well.

      I have been suffering from nerve pain after my first outbreak in June. Today I tried a charlotte’s web salve product and it took the pain away. I wouldn’t use it during an active outbreak though for risk of spreading it.

      Unfortunately that is the most common place men get infected!

      They are not the yardstick that you measure your worth with! It also tells you something about each and every one of them! To the ones you treated you well before I would personally talk to them and see if that was actually what he said to them? Maybe he said something different?

      I just disclosed to a man who works in the medical field and he didn't make a big deal at all. He shared his sti results w me I didn't see HSV1 on the test report, so I asked him about it and that opened up the discussion. The discussion of it was maybe 2 sentences tops. That was reassuring. We've since had sex and there was no hesitation or weirdness. So I recommend dating people w medical knowledge
