Does this look like herpes? (Pictures)

Recommended Posts

Cool0989

So  I went to the doctor about a month ago. He said it doesn't look like herpies . Said it wasn't anything that should worry me . But it still hasn't went away . I have one main partner (GF) don't think she'd ever cheat. N one girl who I cheat with but haven't been with in like a month or 2 tryna clean up my act . They both seem to think their clean, n both say their only fucking me . Yes I know they could be lying . So I'm just here, does it look like herpies ? Nothing ever popped , never hurts, aren't sores. Just little bumps that seem like dry pimples.

You can have herpes and be totally asymptotic. You should get the bumps swabbed just in case. 

... and stop cheating! Either break things off with your girlfriend if you can really be faithful, because it’s not fair to her what you could be exposing her to, or commit to her, and learn how to talk to her about the areas of intimacy that are lacking between the two of you that cause you to want to cheat. She can’t fix something if she doesn’t know there’s a problem

Let me get you info that will match your docs assessment. BRB :D

Look on Google as Fordyce spots don't resemble HSV at all. They do come come in all sorts of sizes. I hope you feel better!

Looks pretty much like Molluscum Contagiosum. Symptoms usually appear 1 or 2 months after contagion. It is a purely local infection which goes away after about 6 months, common treatment is surgical removal (low pain) or freezing. Bear in mind that it is highly contagious (by direct contact with the bumps, but also with fomites), so your other girlfriend is now infected too.

I went to the DR again, 2nd doctor , looked at it , said molluscum right away . Didn't take a herpes blood test though . I asked him if it could be herpes he said by this time from the looks no. Still obvious little doubt because  no blood test . But I been putting zymaderm on it . I think it stopped the spread a bit . I have a dermatology appointment October soonest I could apparently . I'll keep u guys updated .

Not herpes, no doubt about it, herpes lesions don't stay. More will appear during the next couple of months, zymaderm or not.

UPDATE . I had some on my pubic area, zymaderm turned them very red . One started to scab over which I hear is a good sign. Ones on my penis I think are getting smaller/ less noticeable at least , will submit pic after I eat

That looks a lot more like folliculitis than other causes. Your doc can sort that out I feel sure.

      I have noticed that I now have chronic constipation after my primary outbreak. Scientists have found a link to it. Has anyone else had this issue? Treatments?

      I was recently diagnosed with HSV 1 a week ago and the emotional strain has been horrible. I’m the type of person who hates the unknown, so I’m trying to figure out if I have it genitally or orally. I had sex with someone who has been tested for herpes, but he doesn’t remember which strain he has. He hasn’t had an outbreak in years and has taken medicine, so my doctor initially said the chance was extremely low that he gave it to me (especially because it was only for about 1 min and that was it.) I get mouth ulcers regularly and I also get what I believe is a cold sore right in the corner of my mouth (which I’ve read isn’t a real cold sore?) so I’m wondering if that’s why I tested positive. We had sex a month and a half ago, and the symptoms started about a week and a half ago. Burning while peeing, and the occasional itching. When my doctor looked (she also did a Pap smear) she said she saw no lesions which I took as a good sign. I’ve been taking Valtrex for 5 days now but my symptoms haven’t improved at all. I just need people to talk to who know how I’m feeling. Thank you all

      Approximately 5 years ago a  girl gave me a peck on the lips, I wiped my lips off.
      The next morning I woke up with a painful rash all over my top lip that dried up and resulted in chapped lips, where the skin died and regenerated. No pus or obvious cold sore.
      I have had this same outbreak approximately once a year in the same place except for this year where I have had it almost continuously, I have been very stressed.
      I went to the doctor who says it isn't cold sores (I have to wait 2 weeks for a blood test), however I have found someone ( To those with oral HSV2 only by Penumbra,)  who tested positive for HSV2 by blood test with my EXACT symptoms.
      Before an outbreak, my lip/nose area is tingling a lot and I feel a strong twitching in my lip.
      Is it possible that I have mild cold sores?
      I would greatly appreciate any help

      Hello world!
      I had my first HSV2 outbreak 8 years ago. 
      The first one is the worst -- the actual outbreak hurts like hell. The outbreak itself was very tiny and localized in a small genital area. However It came with side effects I didn't expect like an acute and intense tingling sensation in my lower back, buttocks, and spread down to my feet/toes. 
      Fast forward years. 
      I rarely get actual outbreaks if ever. 
      But I do experience that intense nerve pain I remember that comes before an outbreak manifests as a skin lesion.
      So now the outbreaks don't happen, but the prodrome pre-tingles happen often. Except now those piercing sharp tingles aren't just perceptible in the aforementioned areas. I feel it all over my body intermittently - neck, shoulders, arm, yes leg and lower back, foot, etc..
      To emphasize, I never experienced any chronic pain remotely similar to "herpes tingles" pre- first HSV 2 outbreak. 
      Several Questions:
      Does this pain sound familiar to you? Has it migrated outside of where it was when you first had an outbreak? When I bring this up to multiple doctors, I'm baffled that they have no idea what I'm talking about. Or don't see the connection between the nerve(?) /lymph node (?) pain / neuralgia/ paresthesia and HSV.  Every time I see a "Lyrica" commercial for fibromyalgia I think to myself, "well this is fucking it. this is what I'm feeling/experiencing in my body." Is there a link between fibromyalgia and herpes? I wonder how many patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia have either HSV 1/ HSV 2/ shingles/ varicella-zoster viruses or something related? It seems to me there is a there there. But I also feel I'm being gas lit by the world and that in general researchers / HCPs are too "embarrassed" to even commit to research around the "not talked about" symptoms of HSV; or even HSV in general.  How can herpes be so "common" and yet not a single medical professional is conversant in the totality of the disease or specializing in it? >_< Not related, but where can I purchase acyclovir cream? That stuff is like contraband in the USA lol.  ugh this country sucks in this arena.

      Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

      A possible problem is that it will possibly be overshadowed by emails regarding other health problems such as cancer which carry no stigma and therefore have a more massive amount of requests.

      @nydb1 I feel you can be quite confident that you do not have genital herpes here.  Please return to your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.

      Maybe this has been asked already, but is there way we could get everyone on the site to write emails to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?  If they got 1000s of emails about this issue maybe they would fund people like the researchers at Penn?????????
