New here... Grateful for any input

Recommended Posts

Hi fam,

I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could provide any input to what my photos might indicate.

Long story short, I received oral from my girlfriend on Aug 16th and noticed first symptoms of pain in penis area on Aug 18th. We also had protected sex.

The very first symptom I noticed was burning sensation in my urethra only 2 days after the sex. Today is Aug 20th and I still have that sensation (it feels worse when I masturbate/ejaculate). Other current symptoms: dull lower abdominal pain and loose stool (not necessarily diarrhea).

The thing that alarms me most are these extremely tiny little bubbles that I'm pretty sure were never there before. I'm not sure if this is early onset herpes or something else. Right now, I think signs are pointing to Chlamydia/Gonorrhea but I also know that genital herpes can show almost no symptoms at all. The weird thing is when my penis is erect, the bubbles smooth out for the most part (I don't have any other lesions/sores/pimples on the rest of my body).

I would be grateful for any input at all. I'm so anxious right now but also thankful for a forum like this because we can share all of our problems together. We're not alone.

Fortunately, I just got a full battery of tests completed and should be receiving the results back this week so I won't be guessing for much longer.

Thank you so much...

Hey @veganhardware there is nothing suggestive of herpes in the picture.

It isn’t very clear from the picture what is going ond you’ll always need a doctors advice for best recovery.

I suggest that it’s more likely to be fungal or bacterial.

@WilsoInAus thank you for replying to my thread so quickly.

I did get physician/doctor to look at it yesterday and finished the rest of my blood tests today. He said right away it wasn't herpes (not sure how you could make an assessment like that after 2 days) but now that you have also made the same assessment 4 days in it's more reassuring. I'm also thinking the tiny little bubbles could be a fungal/bacterial thing maybe caused by Chlamydia/Gonorrhea/bacteria from the mouth transferred to my system during oral sex. I'm thinking this because my other symptoms are burning while peeing/ejaculating, lower abdominal pain, and loose stools.

Will see in a few days what's going on exactly. Anyways, thanks again for your input... It means more to me than you know.

@veganhardware bacteria is the major cause of the symptoms you describe. Note that chlamydia and other bacterial STDs tend to be asymptomatic at lest initially and do their worst internally.

I forgot to ask if you knew if you already gave oral cold sores. The HSV-1 virus? If so there isn’t a feasible chance of further infection.

@WilsoInAus

Fortunately I have never had any cold sores/breakouts ever in my life. I'm 99% sure I do not have the HSV1 virus but I'll see in the coming days what the tests reveal. If this was my first time being exposed to HSV1, do you think the signs of herpes would be a lot more prominent/obvious now that I'm 4 days post-intercourse?

@WilsoInAus haha I figured it would be... With your expertise however, would you say the photo below is still unlikely herpes?

I noticed if I stretch out the underside of my glans the bubbles look a bit more prominent. I've seen some herpes photos that kind of resemble this but nothing exactly alike. Still very concerned as I'm only 5 days post intercourse.

Thanks in advance...

      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.
