Herpes or Balanitis

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

I'm terrified that I have herpes. I went to a planned Parenthood clinic after some bumps and smells and they tested my urine and told me it's Balanitis because of the smell and discharge (yeast). But now I'm worried because apparently herpes only shows up in blood tests? (Why wouldn't they do that too?!?)

 

That was back in August and I've thought nothing of it since it went away. I've had no new partners and no symptoms until this. It doesn't sting or burn and doesn't hurt to pee. This showed up and now I'm worrying.  I think it does look like herpes and will be seeing a doctor but I figured while I wait I'd get an opinion here. 

 

Terrified.

      Got these a few days ago. They’re painless and I do have some flu like symptoms. I have an appointment on Monday to get tested.

      EDIT: I've gone and spoken to a piercer about this, and she told me that as long as I'm not having an outbreak at the time of piercing all is okay. Also any future outbreaks may prolong the healing process of the piercing. Just writing this here in case anyone finds this post in the future and wants an answer
      Hi,
      If this has been posted in the wrong area then I apologise, just not sure where this should go.
      I've been considering getting a Christina piercing for a while (it's an intimate piercing, not sure how much detail I'm allowed to go into if anyone wants to know exactly what it is), but I've had HSV1 genitally since August 2015. I know that when I've filled out forms for piercings in the past they've asked about any STDs/ailments and I've always ticked no (because I didn't think it was relevant for getting my ears pierced), but obviously with a genital piercing I'm not sure what the right thing to do is.
      I've not had an outbreak since about February/March of this year, so it has been 8 months since my last one, and I've had OBs very infrequently (every few months if that).
      I want to ask my local piercing studio(s) but would rather not do it over Facebook message/email (who wants to have their email address/Facebook account linked to having herpes?), so the only option I can see is going into studios and hoping that if I'm turned away that they won't recognise me again in future.
      Does anyone have any experience of this?

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
