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

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
