My nightmare started more than 2 months ago, pretty normal life but after an encounter (oral no protection), girl told my she was clean (been dating for a while now) she had one long relationship before me. I started to feel almost 2 days later irritation in my glans and meatus. Consulted with a doctor and he prescribed Azytromicin/ceftriaxone/ metronidazole, thinking it was a urethritis.
3 days after treatment felt muscle pain in the inside of my groin and light right testicular pain while sitting (had a similar feeling 6 months ago and an ultrasound was made revealing a small varicocele). Small itchy rash in my lower right back it disappeared in couple of hours.
In the morning my urethra looked mildly red and irritated.
I started to apply cicaplast baume around the area, but only more irritation was felt.
4 days: new symptoms, light icy sensation after washing my testicles and glans.
7 Days in: I had an erection and I felt my glans was being cut or something, very painful, felt very irritated and it was very red, never looked this way before. Could not see any pimple, vesicle or cut, just rednes and irritation mostly around urethra, glans looked very tight, scaly. (Picture 1)
When it was small again it looked super wrinkled.
10 days consulted a dermatologist: told me it looked pretty normal gave a soothing cream and fluconazol 1 dose, hydrocortisone 1% for 7 days (mild? To no improvement).
Urethra swab: ocasional: polymorphonuclears, gram positive coccus and yeast.
HSV 1 and HSV 2 test made 10 days post: HSV1 IGG and HSV2 IGG: 164 and 145 UI/ml (value cut 90 and 110)
HSV1 And 2 IGM: negative
15 days: no improvement saw an urologist gave me Acexamic Acid for 5 days
Saw a small withe lesion, irritated inside of urethra, did not sting , no pain while urinating, no secretion. Disappeared within a day or 2. (Picture 2)
30 days: saw an infectiologist doctor: told me that did not looked like Herpes, he saw the lab test (random laboratory not that prestigious) and told me that crossed reaction is common, HSV1 orally, but that test was no conclusive (low titles). (Picture 3)
Urine test (PCR test) for STD (it includes chlamydia, gonorrea, ureoplasma, mycoplasma, thricomona). All negative.
35 days: started noticing a stinging pain in matus and it irradiated thru the inside and started to have mild stings near suprapubic área, mostly in the first hours of the morning.
Another swab: Staph aureus positve. Started cefadroxil 500mg twice daily
HIV INSTI (-) (5 and a half weeks)
No improvements, and I am feeling hopeless, stinging persist mostly while sitting, redness still there around meatus and glans , scaly glans and redness during erection.
False sense of wetness near pubic area (like if someone randomly dropped a drop of water but no real wetness or secretion seen upon checking in the moment)
In my country there is no PCR swab, western blot or virus culture.
I can not sleep… , I don’t feel normal, pretty depressed over this… I can’t concentrate on anything, past girlfriends did have oral Herpes, never used condoms for oral just vaginal… did not know about HSV…
Could it be gHSV1? Or gHSV2? I cannot recall when I had a sores in my mouth, they were very mild and have not had one in years. Where they sores?
Please help !!!
Last picture is the way it looks when it is small.
Sorry for my english, kind of rusty.
So I have been getting pimples on my penis, 2 are chronic and do not move and react like a black head when squeezed, thin wormy thread of pus. Once in a while I will get a larger one midway up my shaft that can be more like a deep pimple under the skin that can pop. Happens about 3-4x a year. This does not hurt or crust over. The other day when cleaning my penis I noticed a rough patch under my forskin and found this small open wound. It alarmed me so I went to urgent care. After saying what I said above the practitioner said “that’s herpes” before seeing my penis. I later went to the VA urgent care for a second opinion and she said it’s not. I have been married 10 years with a break 3 years ago. Here are two angles of the same dot, do any of you have any thoughts on my experience? Syphilus test came back negative.
