Four months of pimples


Recommended Posts


After two months since possible exposure(see below), pink/red pimples around a quarter of a centimetre appeared on my right thigh, but mostly much smaller. They were painless and had no raw redness surrounding them like a colesore normally does.

There were maybe up to fifty at peak in a 10cm by 20cm area.

They were persistant and stuck around for four months without getting worse or better, and I got no sensation from them at all. Can herpes OBs last that long?

I have had periodical faint tickly itches behind the knees, around abdomen and on my thighs (mostle my inner right thigh). Not where the pimples were though. I have always been an itchy type and so I'm not sure it's a reliable indicator of things. Could just as easily be a dermatological/anxiety problem, not unusual for me.

They cleared up this week, merely shrinking into insignificance.

I was resigned to the fact that it was herpes from day one. I looked around for various alternative possiblities and the thing it most resembles in description, molluscum contagiosum, it looks nothing like from the photos I've seen. More like small acne type pimples that would look perfectly innocent on their own, but the unusual cluster that flared up almost overnight and the long duration makes me think it probably isn't that.

I know I should've been tested, but rather I have merely given up persuing girls for now and have simply used the comfort of doubt to cope with it. I can't really chase girls until I get tested for absolutely everything, anyway.

I went unprotected with this bird who turned out to be having her time of the month which she didn't tell me about until I pulled out. If you've ever met a bloke from Europe, you can bet your life she's had him. You know the type. So you see, I could have anything although the HIV home test was negative and the symptoms described above have been it.

I remember on the way home that day, I thought to myself, I'd settle for crabs and gonorrhea. I think I judged my predicament very well at the time. :(

I'll get around to the GUM clinic before any furthering wooing, but not soon. To tell you the truth, I'm looking forward to using a toilet seat that I haven't had to bother covering in toilet paper more than sex. Still, what do you think?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
