Obviously this is something to pay attention to, however it doesn't immediately scream herpes.. herpes does appear as 'cuts' and 'tears' sometimes. In order to be certain you will need this to be swabbed. 

You're within the time span of appearance of herpes, though a little bit later than average. Is this painful ? I assume so.

Is there anything that could have caused this that you are aware of? Or did it really seem to appear completely on its own? 

My symptoms had physical appearance when I was first diagnosed, however the only reason I noticed them was because there was brief pain while urinating. The pain while urinating was only for the span of a day or less.

The visual aspect remained for a while but the pain was only for a brief period around the start. Everyone does experience this differently, however. The only other symptoms I can think of having were cold sweats on a different day.

Definitely get a swab test done, to be certain of what this is. 

Discharge is a potential symptom of an HSV infection for Women. 

Discharge is also associated with less permanent forms of STI/STD's or just general infections.

I can only make educated guesses based on my own experience and what I have learned since my own diagnosis (I spent a lot of time researching to make my self feel better). 

Overall, I would prepare your self to face a potential diagnosis of something. Some aspects of what I see do appear like herpes, but nothing I see is 'Definitely herpes'. 

I am a man and my first symptoms appeared at my urethral opening, which is basically the thinnest skin on the tip of the penis where the urine passes very last.

A very minor red spot was there that alerted me to its presence with discomfort from urinating, this only happened one time and the discomfort went away even though the spot stayed. 

I have had a bit of a fever a times and some cold sweats. Otherwise I don't believe I have had too many symptoms besides the mental stresses of it.

Was your spot on the outside or inside of the urethra? Did it also blister? And if so how soon after? 

 

Have you also been officially diagnosed?

      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?
