Is this herpes? With pic.

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I'm sure you've heard this story before. Loving husband has a temporary lapse of judgement and ends up making a huge mistake. :(

Well the story is, about a month ago, I had unprotected oral sex with a massage therapist. I felt an irritation for the next 24 hours but it subsided after a day or two so I figured it was just the massage oils.

A few days ago, I noticed a lump on my penis and I'm unsure what it is. I had a doctors appointment scheduled tomorrow (without my wife knowing) but she decided to do some errands with me so I will have to reschedule. I've been abstaining from sex with my wife until I'm sure that I cannot pass on anything to her.

Here is the pic (VERY NSFW): [url=http://i.imgur.com/xxy2d.png]http://i.imgur.com/xxy2d.png

Hey jacob welcome. I'm sorry I'm married I don't look at penis pics. But I have ghsv2 for 24 years. My h started like this, bumps, blisters , sores got infected and spread to anus. Is this a blister? You think this may be from oral sexy times, correct? If it is hsv 1 genitally, this is the h that sheds less, its less contagious and has less outbreaks. Make sure if this bump has fluids, get that swabbed/cultured. Also request an herpes specific blood test, the Igg blood test..most Dr do Igm, these are not reliable , not accurate. Keep us posted. I'm happy you found us. Here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please educate yourself. I agree, until you know what this is, do not have sexy times with wife. My ex hubby, we were newly married, had affairs and gave me h. I gave him divorce. I wish he would have considered my health, before he chose to have sexy times with me. Don't best yourself up, you were human, get this diagnosed and move forward. Please be honest with your spouse. Some think grass is greener, Not so, just different lawn :( . Take care, Ace

Thanka for the quick replies guys!

Ace, its not really a blister, looks more like a big mosquito bite. I'm sorry to hear about how you got the H. I dont know how I could live

with myself if I get my wife infected. I'll look Over the link later on.

:)

Hatsu, no it does not hurt when I touch it. And trust me, I've poked, squeezed, massaged, and even begged it to go away.

Yeah I'm not entirely sure what I was looking at there. Didn't look like my herpes. I highly suggest you see a dr and fast. Abstaining from sex with the wife can be risky business atop an already slippery slope

This does not look like the herpes I've seen on a penis, but then again, I have seen some herpes that just looks like little razor bumps. Your only option is to get tested, get a culture test before it goes away, and if it's gone too soon before you make the doctors you may need a blood test. Also, please do not keep this information from the wifey, as wheelies said, slippery slope.

      I think you're right about 'having a good flow', i.e. splitting the dosage throughout the day to make most use of it. You're also right about potential strain on your body for overdoses, however there is conflicting information about this based on studies I've read. There are several of studies indicating benefits of high doses of vitamin C for fighting viral diseases. I've done quite a bit of research on this as in the past I used to suffer from common colds, often over one week in duration and up to 6 times a year. With Zinc and Vitamin C I've managed to reduce these to once a year, and their duration to under 6 days. Some of the studies used IV administration of Vitamin C, which is of course different to taking it orally, but some of them had success with high oral doses as well:  Dr. Harri Hemilä from the University of Helsinki, Finland, analyzed the findings of two randomized trials each of which investigated the effects of two vitamin C doses on the duration of the common cold. The first trial administered 3 g/day vitamin C to two study groups, 6 g/day to a third group, and the fourth group was administered a placebo. Compared with the placebo group the 6 g/day dose shortened colds by 17%, twice as much as the 3 g/day doses did. The second trial administered 4 g/day and 8 g/day vitamin C, and placebo to different groups, but only on the first day of the cold. Compared with the placebo group, the 8 g/day dose shortened colds by 19%, twice as much as the 4 g/day dose did. https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/9/4/339/htm High dose IV Vitamin C has been shown to be effective against viral infections such as the common cold rhinovirus (Hemila and Herman,1995); avian virus H1N1 (Ely,2007;) Chikungunya (Gonzalez et al. 2014; Marcial-Vega et al,2015); Zika (Gonzalez et al 2016) and influenza (Zarubaeva et al.2017). Also oral supplementation with vitamin C (doses over 3g) appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections (Carr and Maggini, 2017). https://isom.ca/article/high-dose-vitamin-c-influenza-case-report/ We had a case in which a patient with herpes zoster did not respond to conventional therapy so we attempted to administer intravenous infusion of vitamin C which resulted in an immediate reduction in the pain. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3111558/

      Hey @Antoinette63 you do absolutely nothing. If infected with HSV-2, then the initial outbreak would have occurred within days of the infections. Symptoms after 4 months are not really likely to have been from that episode.  If she does have a recent infection of herpes, then it will be from her new boyfriend!

      Hang on @viralfrog let’s be rational here. The male body can only usefully metabolise 100mg of vitamin C a day. Any excess does not have any known impact on the body as it doesn’t actually get to where you might be thinking it goes. It goes out via your kidneys, potentially causing toxic effects. The real trick with vitamin C is making sure there is a good flow moving through your intestines such that your body can metabolise the full 100mg easily. To achieve this, you are much better off taking a tablet of about 250mg with each meal. Anything more than 2g a day of vitamin C is not only useless but commences a strain process on your body that may include outcomes including kidney stones.

      Hang on, no one is talking about testing again for herpes. We are suggesting an analysis of the serum in the blisters that will give clues as to the cause.

      Currently I'm taking my Ascorbic acid at two doses throughout the day, 6g at lunch and 6g at dinner. It's already a hassle as I have to dilute it in water, rinse my mouth with coconut oil and then I take a shot of it from a shot glass and rinse my mouth quickly with water after. Even with the coconut oil, I'm worried for my teeth.  I was going to order a capsule filler machine and some gelatin capsules, but realised it will cost me almost the same than just ordering 1g vitamin tablets from iHerb. Also, this means I still have to be eating 12 capsules per day which is not ideal. I wonder if I could figure out some DIY method to be able to squeeze 3-5g of the Ascorbic acid into some coating to be able to swallow it without risking my teeth.  I had a look at liposomal C too, but what put me off was the quick expiration date if making it yourself. Unless I'm wrong, you have to do a new batch like twice a week.
