I'm worried... Do I have type 2 herpes?

I just had ALL my STI's tested 3 weeks ago, all my blood tests. And I'm clear of everything... but for some reason they didn't do HSV 1 or 2!
I'd asked them to test me for everything, but I've now checked the results, and they are not in them. 


From time to time I do get a cold sore - type 1 Herpes.
This happens if I get a little run down, maybe once ever 5 months. 


I had sex 2 weeks ago with Annie and the next morning there was a small ready/purpose mark on the inside of my foreskin when I pulled it back. There was nothing there before we had sex, but there was the next morning. It didn't hurt, and it was gone in about 4/5 days. I'm not circumcised, so I just pull back the foreskin to wash myself each day, and I noticed this. 

Last night I had sex with Sarah and again this morning the same the same red/purple spot in the same spot. Again it doesn't hurt. And again there was nothing there before we had sex, but there was the next morning. 

I had a relationship with a woman 5 months ago for a 2 months. I've checked with her, she told me she had type 2 herpes, but that it rarely showed up for her.
After we broke up, I think I might have seen a similar spot 4/5 months ago, again in the same place, again no pain, and it just went away in a couple of days. 


Is this a herpes lesion? Do I have type 2 herpes now? 
Is that what this odd spot is that appears sometimes after sex?
What shall I do?

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
