What do i have? Herpes or wart or what?

Recommended Posts


Dear Sir/Madame

I have some spots near anal area, not sure if they are herpes or warts or nothing i wish.

Last 4-5 months ago, I shaved my ass with soap and went to sauna, hot bath often. All sensitive area of my body including ass starting itchy since that time.

i later had sex, not in sauna of course. And untill now, sometimes ass is itchy, not bad but it is itchy. When I clean it, it is fine. If i work out or sit for a long time then i will feel itchy often. Last few days, I look my ass for the first time, then I saw some spots, when i broke them, some has blood inside. Now my ass not itchy when I touch that spots, but it comes from because of sitting or if my ass is wet.

Dose spots caused from herpes or warts. I did have save sex, anal sex. and I am gay.

I read genial herpes symtoms for few days and I want to cry, they are so dangerous.

I decided to meet doctor because I saw some spot though i was not so much itchy, or itchy occasionally in the afternoon mainly.

Till last week, I met one doctor, he make physical examination by his eyes, he said that this is herpes...I used his cream but they feel hurt like burning. I stop and met another doctor, he said it is fine, normal.

What shall I trust.

Please help.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards

God blesss you!

Hi and welcome

So one doctor did a "visual" exam and said you have herpes and the other doctor said that is it not herpes...wow how confusing huh? I would suggest you wait until the 3 month mark and request a HSV blood test.

You said you had "safe sex"? well unfortunatley condom do not protect 100% against HSV. Also you said herpes is "dangerous" I'm wondering where you got that info? HSV is for the most part a harmless "skin condition" and can be managed.

Sorry for what you are going through! hang in there until you can get a blood test.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?
