Pusfilled bumps and rash herpes?

Recommended Posts


Right, so I've had cold sores from childhood and about 8 months ago I first started masturbating regularly in my life. 2 months ago I got a bad rash on the hairy part of the genital area, on one side. First it itched like crazy, then I got bumps or blisters and very, very sore and raw looking skin on the area. I tried to get an appointment to a gynecologist but it took about 2 weeks until I was able to get an appointment and go to one. So by that time the blisters were scabbing and a culture sample was impossible.

The gyne did tell me though that it looked very much like herpes, at least he didn't offer me any other explanation, but he proceeded talking to me about public bath places and saunas... :roll: So either he didn't believe I'm a virging and have never been sexual with anyone or he really was that stupid. Because of this I don't feel like going to any gynecologist until I'm absolutely sure I have to.

The rash went away eventually, but has now come back in a milder form and keeps coming and going, though without the itch and horrible raw sense of feeling. I've tested to squeeze out some of the bumps from time to time (I'm not going to do it again) and either it's impossible to get anything out from them or there's this white-yellow pus coming out.

So my question is, do you think there's any possibility that it might be herpes? I think I might have used my saliva as a lube a couple of times when I didn't know it was potentially contagious. Plus I have atopic skin making me more vulnerable to any kind of skin infections. I get eczema rashes here and there on my body so maybe that's a possibility too? Can I go to a derm instead to show the rash, 'cause I have a really good derm atm whereas the gynecologist wasn't that nice?

it could be, it would be incredibly unlikely but if you some skin conditions like eczema it would be more easily transmitted since that is an immune dysfunction

i would try hard to get it swabbed by PCR

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
