Could this be herpes under my foreskin? Pics

Recommended Posts

Answersplease55

Hi, 

I made another thread for my lip but today I think I have found something under my foreskin. Apologies if I should keep this in the same thread. 

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 am extremely paranoid and just noticed something under my foreskin (which I don't think would have touched her mouth, certainly not relative to the rest of my penis). It could be a normal blemish but I'm angry at myself and scared. 

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

 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? And if this is an outbreak, how many days can I expect this to turn into full blown herpes before I can conclude it's just a normal mark? Are we talking a day/days or hours?

If this is a suspicious herpes mark, should I not be seeing this all over my penis? 

There's currently no itching or soreness but general itching of scrotum which I think I get anyway, but still I'm exceptionally paranoid. 

I definitely won't be doing this again. I hope I'm OK. 

Ihaven't ever had a coldsore before so I know with some certainty that I don't have hsv1 or 2.

It looks redder in real life and less white as that's glare from flash

Here's a more clear pic of the first red mark and some tiny others on the other side of my penis, again on the underside of my foreskin with better lighting 

 

Could I be causing irritation from constantly checking

Additionally assuming this is genital herpes, does that automatically mean I have caught coldsores too?

Hey @Answersplease55 I think youre looking a bit too hard. We all have some dot, scratch or fordyce spot, pimple etc. on our penis if we look all over hard enough.

Whatever those dots are, they’re not herpes.

Thanks @WilsoInAusI went to the doctor and showed him the mark and he said that isn't herpes and I shouldn't worry. Although he quoted asymptomatic shedding happening less than 1 percent of the time which makes me question his particular knowledge in the subject. Nevertheless, the red mark has disappeared so my mind is at ease there.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I noticed a small red mark on my shaft a few hours ago that resembles the red marks on my lips (which haven't blistered as of yet) - she gave me unprotected oral and kissed me too for reference . Is this anything suspicious? I'm still on edge until I hit the 2 week mark - it is currently 7 days

      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.
