Could this be herpes? Stupid mistake (pics)

Recommended Posts

Answersplease55

I stupidly had sex with an escort (I know.... Berate me as much as you wish) and even more stupidly I agreed to have oral unprotected (sex was fortunately protected) and she kissed me a few times. 

 

I couldn't see any visible sores but I am extremely paranoid. 

 

I noticed 2 days afterwards, but its been 4 days since at the time of writing, these little red dots (no inflammation around, about a few mm apart) on the top of my lip. They haven't changed over the past two days in size. I don't know if these were there before but I have gotten paranoid. Could I have caught herpes orally? And if so would I potentially have it down below too? 

 

The picture isn't very clear but hopefully you can make it out 

 

Currently nothing down below except an ingrown hair although I'm convinced I feel it itching/feeling clammier more than normal but maybe my mind is playing tricks on me. 

 

Out of curiosity and for the sake of my own sanity, how many days would it take from initial infection to outbreak before I can kind of assume I'm safe? Are we talking weeks or months on average? I haven't ever had a coldsore before so I know with some certainty that I don't have hsv1 or 2.

Thanks in advance

Hey @Answersplease55 and welcome.

There is nothing in the pic suggestive of herpes. A primary infection with herpes won’t result In indistinguishable little marks... but multiple lesions nearly penny sized across your lips.

If there has been no lesions appear in two weeks from the episode, then in all likelihood no infection took place. Best to test for a range of STDs though before sex with non CSWs. Having said that if she was a professional CSW she would test very often.

Thank you for your reply Wilson, I literally just posted another picture as you posted your reply. Any opinions on the latest would also be very much appreciated for an anxious guy

We know what you’re up to and leave it alone. You know full well they are fordyce spots and have been told multiple times.

This forum is not for your self indulgent fantasies. Please seek a fordyce or sexual activity forum if you want to explore any issue further and stop fucking people over on this forum.

Everyone has had a gutful of your shit. Do not post regarding fordyce spots again.

Good thing you are not a moderator, or else I'd care about your meaningless commands.

Good thing I’m here to stop you disrupting the journey of others. It is clear you do not care about anybody in any event except yourself.

It NO ONE’s fault but YOURS that YOU can’t accept that herpes is not causing ANY symptoms you may have.

That is for you to deal with and not avoid and attempt to foist upon others. That’s harassment.

      We will know in the coming months.  Primary completion is in March and final study completion in May.   If data from previous studies showed that it had no chance to be approved due to safety concerns, then I doubt regulators would have approved this limited phase 2.   I suspect that Terri doesn't think it will be approved for a broader general indication.  Maybe she isn't referring to this trial for immunocompromised patients.   Recall that, the previous trial for general application was suspended due to the animal toxicity studies.  My guess is that, she is simply referring to that. After all, the present phase 2 hasn't even been completed yet, so it would be a bit odd if she already knew it wasn't going to be approved.   Meanwhile, amenalief looks good.  They have tons of safety data from use in Japan.  I don't know if that will count for anything in the US, but the point is that, it's been used extensively (mainly for herpes zoster) in Japan so it's at least fairly safe.  But we'll see.  They will have to do the phase 3 to confirm that.

      How do you know that circumcision was specifically responsible for the decrease in outbreaks given that most people tend to break out less over time? How soon after infection did you undergo this?

      The thing is it needs to be swabbed within 48 hrs  for the most accurate result. Do you know if you have hsv1 oral cold sores. If you dont then you would of had the actual symptomatic symptoms with blisters and all. If you do have oral hsv1 hsv2 could very well be mild that may lead to similar issues to whay youre experiencing. That's why I say get a type specific blood test it should tell you more sinse this has been going on sinse 2016

      Tone123,   Based on the picture, do you think it can't be swabbed? The fact that it reappears randomly in the same spot makes me suspicious it's herpes, but there are no other symptoms. Scooby,   Is it normal for a pimple to just disappear back into the skin? And why would the same 2 pimples appear in the exact same spot and behave the exact same way and then disappear into the skin again? Why doesn't it occur in other areas?

      Did you experience any downsides to adult circumcision?
