what do you think my odds are that I have herpes? Am I being paranoid? HELP!

Ok so to start off I have never had unprotected sex but have gotten a blowjob before without a condom.

In early august I was shaving and I noticed at the bottom of my penis shaft I had two rather large pimples (you know when you get a really big pimple that you can pop on your face?), anyways I used tweezers and popped them and them showered and used acne wash on them. The next day they were gone and it was just two red mark where they had been that took about 2 weeks to fully vanish (just red skin where the pimples were). Whenever I shaveed my pubes in the past i got really bad folliculitis so I wasnt sure if it was herpes or folliculitis from previous shaving that went un noticed.

So i went to a clinic and told the doctor, i showed him the red marks and he was absolutely positive it was folliculits. About two weeks ago i got a large red pimple on the other side of my penis shaft so i put toothpaste on it (toothpaste is good for drying out pimples). The next day the pimple was all gone and was just a red mark like the previous two pimples. The red mark is like 99.9 percent gone now.

SOMETHING INTERESTING- I am currently taking anabolic steroids for my first time and have gotten ALOT of acne so I was thinking that was likely the cause of the new pimple?

can you please explain what causes you to believe that? My friend thinks i am super paranoid about it and am over reacting but i never actually got tested at the doctor so it is always at the back of my mind eating away at me

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
