Had sex two weeks ago, a few hours after shaving vigorously down there. Also have been going to the gym a lot and sweating, wearing tight clothing. About a week ago, these marks appeared (one on testicle, two small ones on shaft), which look like an in grown hair/ shaving irritation. Urgent care said not to worry, but I am still paranoid. I am going to get tested once enough time has passed, but do these look like any very serious? I know I posted this on another forum, but this one seems more appropriate. No pain or other symptoms for a first out break.

I would agree.  Thy look like in the area shaved.  Try using some acne cream on it for a few days.   Sometimes staph can get in the follicles down there especially after shaving.

Thanks. I tried popping the big one, which was not the best idea. Made it a little irritated.

Wash it with mild acne cream and if it starts to get redder or more bumps appear go get a check up.

I went to urgent care who advised me to just wash it was regular soap and water. Sometimes the “less is more” works better. I was trying too many methods to Clear it up.

Yes had Drs say that to me too.  Actually said use cetaphil (a non soap cleanser).  

So you could try that as well.  So they agreed nothing to be concerned with?   I would just watch and if it starts to recur regularly go get a blood test.

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
