Doctor is unsure

Hi guys,

I've been having a recurring scab on my penis shaft for a few years now. It's tiny, painless, looks like a scratch (I convinced myself it was as it only seemed to appear after masturbation) and goes away in a few days. No tingling, no pain, no fuss. It seems to recur once or twice a year and if I couldn't see it,I wouldn't be aware it was there. Recently it recurred twice in two months so I went to get it checked after the first outbreak. In-between the two outbreaks I got HSV-1 and HSV-2 blood tests done (igm and igg). Negative for HSV-2, positive for HSV-1 (I've suffered from cold sores for 25 years). A few weeks later I had another outbreak (a single oval shaped scab which appeared already crusted overnight). Got it visually checked by the doctor who said it didn't look like herpes but she couldn't swab it as it was already crusted over (this was 24 hours after it appeared). I can't seem to get a diagnosis, it doesn't bother me but If it is herpes I might pass it to my other partners). 

What are the odds the HSV-2 test was inaccurate or that I caught HSV-1 on my penis even though I've had HSV-1 all my life?

Mate you can be confident that you do not have genital herpes. There is nothing in the observation of the symptoms or the testing that is remotely suggestive.

Thanks mate,

My doctor made an appointment for me with the local GUM clinic to see if they could identify the source of the recurrent sores from the pictures but it's not for another 3 weeks. Another opinion is greatly appreciated

Sorry to keep bothering you guys, just wanted to upload a more clear photo of the lesion and see if your opinion was the same

A bit better, but looks much more like a scrape to me.

If you're still unsure and what additional comfort, you absolutely have to dash in for a swab the moment it appears again.

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals?

      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
