@clarke53 sorry to say that you have yourself a bad case of ‘red sac’. It usually is a fungal problem, keep on it with the creams.

Your scrotum, not that I need to tell you ;) is a thick saggy bag of skin with very few sensory nerves. In herpes terms, that’s very significant. As herpes is likely to generate skin symptoms where there are more sensory nerves at sites with sensitive and thinner skin layers, it isn’t feasible to solely have skin symptoms from herpes solely on the scrotum.

Years ago, but some time after I contracted HSV-2, mine suddenly turned a strange color between orange and red, not too long after an outbreak. I assumed it was herpes again. I think it also itched, but was not too terribly painful so I didn't go to a doctor. I recall finding someone on the phone who recommended "Gold Bond Medicated Powder." I applied it and it did feel better (a cooling feeling). It gradually went away a week or so later and never returned, and I almost forgot about it until I saw this thread. Wilso's comment sounds about right. I can't prove Gold Bond cured whatever it was, but it definitely made it feel better.

No herpes cannot cause orchitis, mumps is is the only known viral cause.

No there is no medical evidence that HSV causes orchitis. Remember it is now over 60% of internet material is now wrong.

This has to be the most ridiculous statement I have seen here , you have no idea , where do you get off giving advice with such bold statements . I had multiple huge coldsores on my scrotum only regularly for many years , painful large coldsores . Where do you get yours ???

But you’ve never actually had them swabbed.

I’m simply repeating what experts observe in thousands of people with herpes.

      Well update, I went to my doctor and he said everything looks normal also. I mentioned a swab test but he said it wasn’t needed. I feel better but there’s there that doubt in my mind..  I suppose I’ll keep an eye on it and go from there. Thanks everyone, I’ve learned a lot from these threads.

      @brookeb300 Thank you! I am doing the same! I think it is important to have a few potential cures in the pipeline!

      Hello, I recently hooked up with a female and the next day I noticed something abnormal near her vag. She claimed she felt nothing/has never had any sort of OB or sores down there. 4 days later I had a small pimple apear on my foreskin. Is this all just a coincidence? Could it have been from dirty hotel hot tubs and bath and different soap clogging up my pours? I’m really concerned she gave me HSV. Photos attached of my pimple 1 week later. When it first appeared I took my 2 fingernails and tried to pop it.. seemed like I just irritated the skin and made it red. Attached are photos of her and mine. We did get tested both swabbed and blood tested. I’m more worried about her results since mine wouldn’t show in the blood so soon. Should have the results by tomorrow night. I will update my unfortunate story.    https://imgur.com/a/RtarvYW

      From someone suffering from constant reoccurring OBs. After losing hope with valtrex I’m looking for people who can suggest doctors in Southern California. Any advice on different types of specialists for this virus would be great. I’m trying to save my life from this crippling disease. Thankyou everyone.

      Thanks for the reassurance. I will keep a close eye on everything for sure. For a piece of mind, I’m going to hopefully get it checked out tomorrow.
