How many here with glans in this condition? (pics)

Hang on, this really contains the wrong context. It has not been established you have HSV-2.

The correct context is I do not know what is going on for me, here are my symptoms and what do you good people suggest I ought to do?

You must start free of any preconceived ideas.

@WilsoInAus I really don't know why you act like this. I mean, I appreaciate your role of trying people to feel better 'cause of anxiety generated by the subject but... my history of tests and symptoms leaves very little space to dreams and miracles (descending IGM curve + ascending IGG).

I am just trying to understand if my glans bumps are consequence of hsv or another problem, but as I told, I don't remember to ever had this.

And that’s the point. Your history of tests leaves little doubt you do NOT have herpes. It leaves little space but for further testing to clarify.

Theres no acting involved, it’s an obligation to be truthful, honest and act with integrity. Do you think I do not do that?

You can interpret your tests any way you wish, but people have a right to understand and form their own conclusions.

You are asking the wrong question as to whether something is related to HSV or not when you are guessing you have HSV-2 despite way more negative tests than positives in a real world that has false positives.

Hence you are asking a Shroedingers Cat question that has no feasible answer.

I have hsv2 and started to have something almost exactly like this (not sure if related to hsv2 but I never noticed this prior to my infection).

Is this an atypical hsv2 manifestation? (mine doesn't itch)

not herpes. You need a dermatologist. Go see the dermatologist and hope they can see it without you having to obtain  an erection and lay off the cheap prostitutes.

@Trace67 thanks... "not herpes" and your opinion about what could be? I went to many dermatologists.. (mine is less noticeable than this guy) but none had a sure answer...

I suspect this guy has penile ‘spines’ or papules. The penis glans of other primates look a lot like this. The fibrous lumps are designed to stimulate vaginas better. It’s a natural penilr variant.

And in my case could be a variant triggered by hsv2? sort of irritation o those lumps?

Sorry, I don't know, but I feel confident that it's not related to HSV. It could be nothing to worry about. I would say that you could have a biopsy, but that would really suck ass considering where it is. There are in fact some diseases that we don't have tests for, and usually, they treat those with broad-spectrum antibiotics and hope it goes away but if its viral then, of course, it will not. I'm not saying this is the case or that you need antibiotics. To my untrained nonmedical eye, it doesn’t look bacterial. You’ve already been to several dermatologists so you might consider going to an infectious disease clinic in your area. They see a lot of skin infections from HIV patients, so perhaps they may recognize something the dermatologists didn’t know about. It might be worth it for peace of mind. If they say its nothing, then you may have to accept that its nothing or that you will never know and move on.

My cat brags about having these and I'm like whatever mine is bigger.

I might have something looking similar but the bumps kind of disappeared after 4 months and look more like balanitis now. Got alot of burning in the area and have felt dysuria for the whole period. Maybe 5 months since my exposure took place. Im in sweden and doctors dont take anything else then swab test so im hoping i can go to another country and test. On my second (of 8) day of antibiotics from the std clinic. All test they Did showed up negative. Hope this solves my long time dysuria and red areas on my glans.

So you're being treated for some bacterial UTI stuff? Not hsv related though?

      Hey @Catalyst4 and welcome to the website. There is no relationship between lichen planes or psoriasis to herpes. Follow the treatment recommended by your doctor. If steroids it is then have no worries regarding herpes.

      Hi all - I’ve been getting weird recurrent redness on my glans since January. I foolishly had unprotected sex and this nightmare started a week or so later. It starts off as a small circle of redness that turns oval and then spreads. There is no bump or no fluid and it doesn’t itch and is not painful. It also gets flaky like psoriasis after a week or so then the skin becomes shiny and thick.  I got a biopsy that said it was possible Lichen Planus. But was a herpes infection responsible for triggering it? I had a swab when the inflammation was at it’s worse and it came back nEgative for herpes but I think it was done way too late. My dermatologist says it’s not herpes- but this all started after an unprotected sex encounter so I think it’s related to some infection somehow. It did go away completely with doxycycline and cortisone cream only to come back a couple of weeks later after finishing  the medication .  I’m set to get my blood test in a few weeks but that will only tell me if I’ve been exposed to HSV, not that the redness is actually HSV.  If it is HSV and it’s causing the Lichen Planus or psoriasis how do I treat it? Steroids will make me more susceptible to further outbreaks Does anyone get this shiny skin as well with their outbreak that does not go away on its own? i have pics I’m trying to upload but the size limitation is a problem ...

      Hi @hi202020 note that all immune disorders of over activity are related to the immune system attacking the body tissue. They can be highly serious issues such as: lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes (type 1), Hasimoto’s etc. Prostadynia is an umbrella term for a number of issues in the genital region. Often you are able to drill down to a more specific cause but sometimes not. The issues in the umbrella are such things as prostatitis, pudenal nerve ‘entrapment’, erythromelagia and fibromyalgia to name a few.

      The burning (neuralgia, neuropathy) is common...unfortunately even doctors don't know if it means your shedding or not....not necessarily though. There are a lot of nerve issues with herpes...it's way more a nerve issue than a skin issue. Do the antivirals help you? 
    • Kurdt01
      Short of something none of us knows about that comes completely out of left field (which is entirely possible), our best bet on something anytime soon is Pritelivir....hopefully it works as well as we all hope.
