Day 60. What the hell is it

I’m on day 60 on exposure I think. Or close. I’ve had the same pain in my corona gland and sometimes it hurts super bad and other times it doesn’t. I’ve been to the ER urgent care and urologist they all say I’m crazy. IGG done at week 2 and 5. Negative. All visual exams say it’s nothing. My concern is the corona gland is always red and sometimes these small white welts show up that hurt but they don’t burst or anything. I’ve circled the area. It’s been 60 days it hasn’t gone away it’s nonstop. I don’t know what to do. I’ve been searching it up and I know herpes can be small white blisters I just don’t know why they haven’t popped and healed. Should I get an IGG test done next week as well? Sorry it’s annoying my penis has been in pain for 60 days.

masturbation makes my corona gland and these red blisters show up. They fade within an hour. I’ve used a condom during sex twice since and it didn’t seem to be as irratated.

Additional info sometimes erections burn sometimes they don’t. If there is pain it only last an hour or so and fades whether it’s from an erection or not. The pain isn’t consistent. Sometimes it hurts and it looks fine sometimes it hurts and it’s red and inflamed.

FIrst of all its not called the "corona gland". Its called the corona which is a part of the glans. The "glans" is the entire head of the penis.

2nd, nothing in those pictures really look like herpes related at all... but no one on this website is a doctor. If youre really concerned you just have to wait it out and keep getting tested every couple months throughout the year or until you give up. It could just be from irritation or bacteria who knows. Go get a second professional opinion.

Week 2 and week 5 isn't soon enough to get a positive Igg in many cases anyway. It could take up to 4 months or more for people to seroconvert so just get tested again in a month or two. or Get the western blot test....

But based off the pictures and symptoms you’d say no?

And you say or the western blot. Is that always accurate no matter how long it’s been since possible exposure? 

Last question as well. Would my out break show is several different ways. For example “white blisters” on my corona glan. Then tiny red dots on the head of my penis and red bumps on my groin! Or would it all be the same in one area

@Zach92 nothing is suggestive of herpes in your pictures or description of symptoms.

Your herpes status will be entirely independent of whatever is causing this. Speak with your doctor, it sounds like a specialist such as a urologist is required.

      And yes i have never done a hsv1 and i think i prefer not to do it cause if i have also the antibodies i would make myself more crazy about the topic that i am already... i have that in mind always of 2016 when i had the discomfort tmdown there and then i saw blisters on ex boyfriend WEIRD @WilsoInAus

      @WilsoInAus it means a lot that u answered to me! Yes you are right i have been months like this.  Cause at first how does my gyn prescribe me a topica aciclovir when she told me she did not saw anything and then the second time she saws “blisters” which i dont and she prescribes valtrex oral.  Then i do the exams and are really onfusing. the dermatologist told me he did not see anything of herpes and also another gyn I went after the two times of going to my gyn of all life who told me and gave me the meds and he told me that i did not have blisters lor sores maybe they were varicose veins there. But id weird cause no one can tell me what is was. Why would it be red and itchy and ti gling on the same part as 2016? Right. And that many different exams wow

      When was your exposure though? Wasn’t it three years ago? Any symptoms outside of the genital area are not symptoms of genital herpes. Whether that’s on your hands or back etc. What are you talking to your doctor about, seems they aren’t doing their job if they keep testing you for something that you probably don’t have that doesn’t cause the symptoms you suggest.

      I was exposed to it I truly believe that I was! My body still doesn't feel completely right! Now I have a lot of new sypmtoms like nerve pain, plus I had all the symptoms minus the sores because I had hsv1 already kinda spared me (at least I think) Body had pain on one side of the body, burning tingling, on hands and buttocks and swollen underarms. I also had a low grade fever. (which are all known sypmtoms). I'm so tired of testing at this might be next week

      Hey @Samantha1997 this is all a bit confusing for you. I’m afraid that the best interpretation I can give right now is that you have a childhood HSV-1 oral infection that is producing erratic combined IgG test results. It would seem likely that you do not have a HSV-2 infection. And likely that you do not have genital herpes. However your suspicions need investigating. clarity could be achieved with the following: - a swab of a freshly emerging lesion - IgG testing that is type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2.
