Could I have Herpes? (pics included)


Recommended Posts

Hi, I found out someone I slept with has herpes. We used a condom, she has told me since that she takes antivirals to suppress outbreaks, we slept together only once on June 12th, and none of my other partners have reported any symptoms. We're all going to get tested but until my doctor's appointment I'm losing my mind. Do these photos look like herpes? There's no pain - occasional extra sensation whenever masturbating. The white bumps have been like this for a couple of days. Thanks very much.

Hey @Tyler_Brown and welcome to the community.

I cannot see anything that resembles herpes. Note that if you were infected you would experience lesions where the virus entered the body hence outside the condom protected area. 

You do need to understand a little more about the herpes type this partner has and testing to see if there is commonality. For example, you and this partner and perhaps other partners may all have HSV-1. This wouldn’t hence be an issue of concern.
