My girlfriend has been diagnosed with herpes. I have been with her for almost a year. I decide to go get tested and the same week, I get one tiny ballpoint pen size dot on the tip of my penis, then I notice a slightly larger one on my left side of my penis, now I had another one close to the first one, that is kind of connecting to the other. I mean theses are all so tiny, however very visible to the naked eye. I have no idea. It has to be...... It's like I pissed it off to get tested.... I'd say they first showed up 4 days ago. Day 1 one, day 2 second, day 3 3rd, day 4 the tiny 4th. However the 1st is almost gone, as is the second. The 3rd is slightly larger, however still tiny tiny. What should I do?? I work outdoors in the heat all day, I don't have access to a doctor. Any advice will be appreciated, however like I said, I don't have access to a doctor right now. Thanks

don't sweat it dude

You mention that you decided to get tested, what were the results of the tests?

If I remember our conversation from the chat room, this is someone you plan on staying with for a while. So what if you both have it? You can mostly control the virus so it should really not affect you relationship with her.

Even if you two do not make it you can still lead an active dating life. I have had this many years and date whomever I want.

Learn as much as you can about this disease and you will see how insignificant it is.

Good luck!

Still waiting on the results, I'm out of the country so I had to go to an actual labratory and it was sent to the U.S. Should have been in Friday, but now they called and said it wasn't going to get in till the end of next week due to the lab in the u.s. doing the test. Will post when figured out. Just more curious on what I have going on. Doesn't seem to be what most people describe as an OB. For me it's more of a curiosity/ don't know what is going on thing. Yeah, I plan on being with her , but you never know what the future will throw at you.

For the meantime I'm taking the following:

2 x protein shakes that include 2233 milligrams of Lysine a piece.

Echinacea with Vitamin C to boost my immune system

Zovirax (aka acyclovir) topical cream for bumps.

Again, not sure, but taking all precautions. Doing the best I can with what I have available.

Staying away from alcohol and keeping my hands washed.

Thanks for the replies.

It's very hard for anyone to give an online diagnosis with your descriptions. You'll have to wait for the test results.

It's possible you are usually asymptomatic but the stress and worry of taking the test brought on this small outbreak.

Good luck.

      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
