Painless Bumps

Recommended Posts


've yet to be diagnosed but wanted to share my experience and update to better inform the public and others who are concerned about their health.

All of this started around the time I started dating my current girlfriend. We are very sexually active and she doesnt get very wet during sex. We went without using lubrication for quite some time too. A few days after a rough sex session I was masturbating and felt a small, dry scab the size of a pin head. After searching around I found a few more. I assumed it was from the dry intercourse a few days prior. As time went on and this occurred again I began to worry that it may be something else. I have small bumps on the shaft and under the head of my penis which dont really go away. They will form a small dot of a scab in the center of them after sex which will last for a while then go away. I'm not sure if the bumps come or go. Once I feel a scab and start looking I seem to find more bumps. Also, these bumps are really unnoticable unless I spread the skin apart to look closely. Then it becomes apparent that a bump is present. Not sure if its paranoia or a break out. The bumps are nonpainfull and dont crust, they just get that tiny center scab and then heal up. The only other symptom that I have which relates to herpes is rectal itching/discomfort. I was diagnosed with hemeroids about a year ago so I'm hoping that its just coincidental that I have both symptoms at once, especially since i have never had anal intercourse or anything of the such.

I brought this up at my physical a few weeks ago any my doctor dismissed it saying that I would def know if I had a blister and it would most def be painful. He suggested i go to a clinic to get tested if I still felt the need because they dont report to insurance companies. I plan on going tomorrow.

Has anyone experienced or heard of these symptoms? Any info would be helpful

      Another company looking to create a vaccine.  http://www.bluewillow.com/bluewillow-biologics-awarded-patent-for-intranasal-genital-herpes-vaccine/ BlueWillow’s intranasal NanoVax platform elicits both mucosal and systemic immunity through its novel oil-in-water nanoemulsion (NE) adjuvant, offering a unique advantage to combat sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including genital herpes. The mucosal immunity elicited by intranasal NE vaccines provides critical protection against infections at the port of entry by which a pathogen enters the body. The intranasal NanoVax HSV vaccine has demonstrated safety and efficacy in both prophylactic and therapeutic animal models for genital herpes. In a prophylactic guinea pig study, the intranasal vaccine prevented genital herpes infection in 92 percent of animals vaccinated. Therapeutic study animals previously infected with genital herpes who received the BlueWillow vaccine reduced recurrent lesions and viral shedding by more than 50 percent compared to animals who received no treatment.

      Cas, This is sooooooo exciting I may need a diaper!  How bout you?  😊

      This is wonderful news!  Impressive dollars raised and the team is absolutely outstanding.  For those who have been dreaming of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on our side, consider your prayers answered.  William Jacobs and Betsy Herold from Einstein have “sounded” extremely confident all along.  While maybe not just “around the corner” this is amazingly exciting!   If there was ever a person that possibly could be a force in “fast tracking” could it be Mr. Bill Gates?  While it may seem “so far off”, for those of us having been infected for 20+ years or more, it is still music to our ears, and the  glass is always half full-without hope you have nothing.   Never forget this line from Shawshank Redemption:                                           “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies”.

      Discussion thread on this news here:

      This is pretty impressive for a number of reasons: Average funding for a series A in biotech is around ~$50M but the median is around ~$30M as of 2018 The takeaway then is the XVax is at the higher end of the spectrum suggesting (1) High investor interest, (2) XVax is thinking big A robust set of investors- good to see that there are multiple names here rather than 1-2. Again, suggests robust interest from investors Note that the anchor investor (i.e., the biggest) is Adjuvent who are backed by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, good to see that HSV continues to be of interest to them (my theory: due to the link with HIV and Alzheimer now)   Overall everyone should be cheering this news given the impressive results seen with animal models. Still remember this is going to be a multi year process- I would hope to see a phase I in 2020
