Recurring Pimple like Lesion - Same Place On Genitals

4 posts in this topic

Sort of sounds like a sebaceous cyst to me. They can recur in the same spot over and over, and they are typically pus-filled.

Obviously, I couldn't diagnose you online --- not even if I were a doctor. Just suggesting one possibility you might look into.

I would suggest you quit fooling with it when it pops up, by the way.

Thanks for your reply and insight. Hoping you're right, and I'm trying to get tested this week.

      The reason that you need to wait to find out what type you have and have it confirmed it so that you can give the guy who gave it to you the facts about what time he is likely to have and that does make a difference.  The type of genital herpes is actually important because when you tell the person who gave it to you you need to be informed about which type is likely to have because there are differences.  If it is genital HSV 1 he most likely have oral herpes but iF it is  type w then he has it on his genitals as well.  And you need to be informed about what type it is so that Dino's which type is likely to have

      The doctor did swab it.  I asked him if the swab would test for HSV1 or HSV2 and he told me "It didn't matter what type I had."  What a bedside manner.  I made an appointment to have a serological blood test at Planned Parenthood tomorrow to determine the type.   You recommend waiting until the swab comes back to tell him?  I'm not a doctor, sir, but my sore is classic herpes.  The start with small blisters, the progression to a lesion like ulcer...  hopefully the crusting starts soon.  I suppose it's selfish to want to jump the gun and tell him to relieve my own emotional burden.

      You're not part of the impossible. Transmitting genital HSV1 to another person's genitals is close to impossible. Transmitting oral HSV1 to a person's genitals is quite possible.

      Did the doctor do a swab test of the sore? You're in a messed up situation for several reasons, but perhaps wait on the "crushing another person" part until you know for sure. Almost 90% of people have one type of herpes or another (type 1 or type 2) and the majority of them don't even know they have it.. knowing, or more specifically thinking that you know, what it means to have herpes is often worse than the actual impact that it has on your daily life.

      Most STD testing does not include herpes testing by default. They may think that they're "clean" but they probably haven't been tested. At this point you don't even know whether or not you have HSV. All possibilities are on the table while you deliberate over investigating further with testing.

      Hi everyone, I've had sex with two women in the past year. The most recent was about 10 days before I started showing symptoms. Both of these women swear to me they have been tested and are clean. Is this possible? And if so, is it very rare? I know it is not healthy to be hung up on this fact, but I know both of these women and want to believe they are being honest with me, but also am skeptical. Could I have had this disease for years and not known? Also no partner in my history has ever said they had any problems or questioned if I was clean after we were together.

      Viral infections, which preoccupy the host's defenses/immune system, typically make people vulnerable to opportunistic pathogens like bacterial, fungal and/or yeast.   You could say that your body is prioritizing the production of antibodies for GH.     I'm not going to dispute whether you have hsv or not but there is something you can do. There's an herbal wash that'd be very helpful called Yin Care.   Long story short, it's nearly for all vaginal issues.  Especially those related to yeast, bacterial, fungal, or viral infections. https://www.amazon.com/Arbor-International-Herbal-3-4oz-100ml/dp/B0009Y2EVK A fungal rash on your groin?   Does the rash follow a line down the inner thigh?   When you say fungal rash, what makes you say fungal?

      It's a lot of eyeballing the math because ultimately nobody has adequately studied oral-to-genital HSV-1 transmission rates. Only 30% of the population is susceptible (HSV-1 individuals don't count) and a smaller fraction of that group actually receives oral sex based on their demographics. It's not correct to use HSV-2 transmission rates from male-to-female or vice versa because the mechanics of the act of oral sex are different. There's no condom involved in oral sex (unless you count the minority that use dental dams). There's much more repeated exposure of a vulnerable skin surface (the vulva or penis glans) to a potentially infectious surface (lips and to a much lesser extent the insides of the mouth). I'd love to crunch more numbers but we're getting off-topic so maybe something to do in a different thread - I'll move our posts a bit later. Edit: I have now moved the relevant posts into this thread for further discussion. Currently I don't have enough time to crunch some numbers on my own but I plan to contribute later today or tomorrow.

      More than 70% of people are HSV-1 positive and about 40% HSV-2 positive, many don't even know and live their lives without taking Valtrex. If you think about that - how many billions of people are affected by this virus - you will eventually understand that it's not the end of the world either way.
