Concerned, not sure if I should be

Recommended Posts

I had a Western Blot done and it came back negative for the virus. However, I woke up today with like 4 little red bumps on my penis shaft with little blackish/brown dots in the middle.

Anyone with any experience/knowledge of this? I did searching it looks like it could be a fungus infection or ingrown hairs (I did recently shave down there).

Thanks so much.

It can take 3 months or more from exposure until herpes will show up in a blood test. If the bumps ever turn into blisters/sores/anything with viable fluid, I would suggest you go get them swabbed.

I waited over 3 months to take the Western Blot after I could have possibly been exposed. I will be going to the doctor anyway tomorrow to have them looked at. Thanks for the reply.

      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.
