Posted (edited)

So recently I got these strange bumps on my penis. I had unprotected sex and went to gym after , I noticed them when I was in the shower in the same day. so I got them between 4 hours. I need help 

 

also went to go see a doctor in the morning and he said they look like herpes but the actual results will come in within 4 days . I’m worried sick

Herpes wouldn't show up in 4 hrs.  

It would have been from sex 2-21 days earlier (3-7 days is most likely).  

As for the picture. It's hard to see but there is enough of a reason to get it checked.  But could be several things.  

What test did you get? Blood or a swab?   If a swab do you know if it's PCR?   

It's likely too early for blood.  

Make sure you get the type if it does turn up positive.

I got a swab test and I wouldn’t know if it’s PCR

When they give results ask.  If it was a culture a negative e swab won't mean negative, just virus not found.  Cultures are not very sensitive and require a good sample to grow.

Hard to diagnose in person let alone in pics.  

It could be a Balantis related infection.  The swabs the best bet.  And possible follow up with blood testing at 3 months .

      This is my second outbreak in more than four years apart from the first. Or at least that the symptoms are noticeable enough. The first time I was prescribed acyclovir but this time I was prescribed valacyclovir (generic for valtrex). I'm on my third pill and just developed a mild reddish rash not itchy in my forearms. Has anyone experienced something like this?

      Hi guys I am worried if I got herpes. I have gone to the doctor and they have all said I am fine, I recently had Oral sex from a girl I met. I had it done two times. The first time I was fine and the next time, I felt pain in my urine.  Uti tests and stds tests expect for Herpes was done and I was good. The pain went away but I have these red sores and I am confused if they are anything? The doctor said they are normal but I just want some feedback. Thank you guys please comment.  My pictures are there

      Update: I plan on getting tested in mid November, so about a month from now, it’s been 6 months since lip breakout and after taking olive leaf extract recently, I think I finally have the anal itch under control, it’s virtually non existent so I’m hoping for improvement over the next month, I’ll keep y’all posted

      I think someone else posted about this. I read the same article, it's exciting news lets hope it succeeds.

      My testicles itch badly too , I usually take a cool bath with epsom salts to stop the itch . I have had the itching off and on for years. Your not alone.

      I have to agree. I'm actually...fine? I freaked out at my first OB last month, but then after reading all the information out there, and starting taking care of myself, I don't think about it most days. There is the occasional anxiety and I haven't worked up the courage to tell people except my bf, but I read a lot about people talking like its the end of the world (which makes me think "Should I be worrying more?"). Of course, everyone's feelings are valid, but, personally, I wish I had someone to talk to about this that isn't completely distraught.
