Dont know if I have herpes

Life sucks

Recommended Posts

Pictures at this link I had 2 unprotected sexual encounters. One girl said she was tested and didn’t have anything. The other had a bf for a while and neither of them have had anything before but the day after I had sex with the second girl the under part of my shaft was a little itchy and my nuts were too. That night I looked and my penis was a little red on the shaft and balls where I had been itching and the tip of my penis was a little red as well. When I looked online it seemed to be balanitis. The next day there was no more itching or anything and all of the redness except the tip was gone. Then in about 3 days everything was cleared up. About 12 days later while masturbating I felt something like an itch or irritation. But only while I was stroking really. Then later that night saw this and in about 2-3 days it had scabbed up and was gone. Haven't had anything since. And I never had the flu, or swollen lymph nodes. No painful urination during any of this. They didn’t really hurt to touch or feel sensitive and didn’t ooze anything.

Cmon no one has anything to say? 

Sorry mate, missed this one.

What you describe does not sound overly like herpes. The timing is out and the presentation is aligned to other issues such as yeast or bacteria. 

Hows it going now? If the little area in the pic cleared up without much drama it was probably a minor issue.

You’ll need to see you doc if you have concerns or if it is getting worse.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.

      She tested positive for HSV2. No, there was nothing of that sort in that area.   However I also have ulcerative colitis so I’m on medication that makes me immunosuppressed. I have been bleeding a bit when I pass stools during the time of redness, so I’m unsure if I’m getting a flare from the colitis (from all the stress of everything) or if it’s due to the virus making it’s way to an already inflamed area and popping up as blisters that I can’t see and hence the bleeding.    I had two equivocal results (at 4 weeks and 6 weeks) that then went to a positive result (7 weeks after exposure). Combine that with some flu symptoms, redness, tingling etc. makes me feel it’s conclusive that this points to a hsv2 infection.
