Hello!! I’m worried this could be potentially herpes? But I’m not sure


Recommended Posts

So I’ve noticed some  Orange like bumps in the back of my throat. I’ve searched images and so many relate to pharyngitis and many other people say they have it too and it’s normal. Thing is I’ve never thought of it as an issue until after my first time giving oral to my ex, I started over thinking and then started to over examine my throat and noticed these bumps. Can anyone assure me if it is herpes or I’m just going crazy? Lol. That would help a lot. I know no one here is a doctor but anything helps. 

Heres some info: my ex I was with for about 3 months.  knew him for a year before. He is the first person I’ve ever done oral with.  I’ve never even had sex before this to be honest. I’m in some terms a “Virgin” still. Anyways after I gave oral, I noticed he had a bump on his penis. I asked him what it was and he said it’s been there as long as he can remember. So I let it pass my mind but I don’t know anymore. I let my panic get to me once I saw these bumps.

There isn't too much chance of this being herpes I suggest.

It all looks a bit abnormal though, I really would think about seeing your doctor if you can.

I have before and said it’s laryngitis and prescribed Z-pak. Hasn’t gone away and it’s been a month. :/ but thank you!

Well if it has been there a month, that would pretty much eliminate herpes. Herpes is not static in the nature of symptoms.

      Never thought I'd ever be posting something like this online, but life takes many turns and some decisions are not the best. This is my first post and here's my story, I'll try to keep it short.
      About nearly a month ago I received unprotected oral sex for about 20 minutes (in case time is important) and rubbed the tip of my penis at the entrance of a woman's vagina for a brief moment before putting a condom, and the penetration only occurred after I was wearing a condom. Since yesterday I noticed two quite small red areas on my penis, got no idea how long its been there but it doesn't itch or hurt. I also feel somewhat fatigued, been peeing more than normal too though no burning sensation.
      I've always had a lot of Tyson's glands, so it gets hard to really know what's going on here. It definitely ain't normal, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed. Another thing I noticed is that there was a few marks on my thigh, near to the knee. I thought they were pimples at first and even popped one of them, which didn't really pop like a normal pimple. Well, maybe it is actually just a pimple but the coincidences are freaking me out.
      I've only felt a very mild burn sensation in my urethra some time after I touched it to check if there was any other sign inside, now it feels normal but I don't even know what's actually normal anymore. Everytime I look at my penis I feel like I see something different, something new or that everything is going away. I'm too young and this anxiety is killing me inside.
      Definitely going to get tested soon, right now I'm just waiting to see if this will develop into something else or what. Obviously getting tested even if it all goes away. I already searched for many STDs online and herpes seems to be the closest shot.
      I appreciate if you take your time to answer this, really! Here comes the pictures:

      The marks on my thigh, I think they appeared all at once

      My girlfriend keeps saying she wants to do oral on me and "swallow".  I know for vaginal sex definitely we'd have to use a condom, but not sure for oral. I know HSV2 prefers the genital area.  Would it be better for her to just use her hands to avoid the extended oral contact and then just "finish" in her mouth? The "swallowing" thing apparently is important to her because she's persistent with it. So is it in semen? Having the green light to just "do it" sounds to good to be true. So I'd like to know how to do this safely. Thank you. (I was diagnosed more than 10 years ago and I'm asymptomatic)

      hello,
      i was here in june with what I thought was maybe an oral ob.  At that point it had been post exposure by 4 months and i ended up testing neg 1&2 igg.  i just tested again and was neg for both, no new contact. 
      Monday night my nose all of a sudden became EXTREMELY itchy in just one nostril.  the next morning and day all of these white bumps popped up all over it.  I put abreva all in my nose.  this morning i woke up and it was irritated but all the white bumps were gone.  I calmed down but then i just looked and it looks like there's little erosions inside my nose now.  The dr refuses to swab.  Does this look like herpes?  I'm attaching pics of my nose with the blisters and with the erosions, I circled the erosions.  Also including a pic of my lip from june for reference. 
       
      Sorry for the image quality of my nose, one is scarily detailed and the one of the bumps is very blurry.  hard to get a good nostril shot as it turns out
      maybe i have a false neg hsv1 test result?
      Feeling so defeated it is frustrating to not know what is going on and i feel humiliated by the drs who think i am being crazy for suggesting herpes.

      @CHT I am not sure what country you are in but I am in the U.K. and they don’t do blood tests for HSV at the standard sexual health clinics maybe at private ones where you have pay they do.   What would checking my anti bodies confirm ? And she didn’t swab the area as she said there was nothing to swab and no lesions but I am sure there was. She seemed quite inexperienced.  I have had an lesion swabbed years  ago  to confirm HSV2 but no swabs  since.  I would like  to know if they are HSV or my excema as I never know which is which so I just don’t have sex when I get these feelings as I don’t know if I’m having a Outbreak.  I will have a look at the link thanks. I wouldn’t want to go on the implant again as I don’t want 3 years of birth  control in my arm. I may consider the mini pill which is the same hormone as the implant as I can easily stop this it I have a bad reaction. I have an appointment with a specialist at the sexual health clinic next week

      Hey @PlainJane what a thoroughly nasty piece of work! Im afraid it is the waiting game for you, having said that, there seems very little reason for you to suspect herpes.
    • PlainJane
      @WilsoInAus Thank you so much for the reply! You did before I even asked lol. I really didn’t want to talk to her about it. The last time we had spoken she was really mean and nasty to me. Threatening to beat me up because she was drunk. I don’t want her going around telling people I asked her if she has herpes because I have it. Which she absolutely will. Or she does and then I will be her scape goat for her to tell people I’m the one who gave it to her. I guess it’ll be a waiting game to get blood work to confirm or deny the presence of HSV2 antibodies.

      Hello @PlainJane I think I recall your partner's post and would suggest that what he had as revealed in the photos was almost certainly not herpes - and reaffirmed above! The first thing to note is that you cannot be infected with HSV-1 and then test at a level 43.5 a total of 9 days after the incident. That's not how your body works. It would takes several weeks and possibly months to reach that level. Undoubtedly the HSV-1 infection is old and highly likely an oral infection from your childhood. The next thing to note is that toys or any object are not a great way of transferring herpes. Typically the rubbing of the skin area that is shedding the virus against the recipient's skin is needed. Transfer any other way is somewhere between infeasible to impossible. Your pictures do not look like herpes to me in favour of folliculitis - your partner's thigh shots are almost certainly folliculitis. Also note that this female friend must have HSV-2 for this to even warrant the vaguest notion of herpes being a cause. Can you ask her? If she does have HSV-2, then you will need a 12-16 week IgG test in order to have a conclusive answer (with a strong expectation of negative).

      @WilsoInAus Could you review this? You replied previously on my boyfriends post of his butt rash. I guess all I can really do is find a facility who will swab when I have a suspecting bump, since my doctor won’t for some reason and then redo the blood test for HSV2 since it’s now been 4 weeks since possible exposure.
