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

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
