Is this herpes? need your help! Very worried

I recently had unprotected sex starting from last Thursday to Sunday with two separate girls. The last sex I had was rough and I remember my penis hurting when I was putting it in because she was a bit dry. On Sunday however I started to notice something on my glans and started applying antifugal cream(had genital eczema/jock itch before) then I started to notice tiny red marks around my shaft, and red bumps where my pubes are. I did use an old razor on Friday so I believe the bumps on my pubic area are just ingrown but I never had anything appear on my glans or shaft before so I’m fucking stressing the fuck out right now. 

Ive been to the doctors today and he had me do a urine test which I have to wait a week. I’ve been researching for the last 3 days for hours and it seems like it’s either balantisis/yeast infection sores but I don’t know what it could be . I’m really really hoping it’s not genital herpes , I don’t think I can live with them and I’m serious about that. The doctor said it seems like it’s a bacteria infection but I’m still skeptical.  I just got my meds today and he gave me a cream to go along with it but in the meanwhile, I thought I’d make a post to see if anyone has had the same thing. 

The reason why I cant guess what it is , is because I never had a fluid filled like bumps , they were never raised to begin with(all flat) , never oozed anything either. I read some herpes come in a form of a cut that blister but mine has not blistered up , it looks like an open sore(bit of an indent) or similar to a insect bite. I’m wondering if anyone had a similar issue as I did and ended up either being hsv or some other infection. It burns midly but that’s about it. Does abrasion look like this sometimes?

Thanks for the help, any info will be much appreciated

Hey @Fourtyfourfour I’ve looked at the pics. 
On the penis glan (head) that’s almost certainly yeast or a balanitis condition other than herpes.

On your shaft is a bit unclear. If infected you’d be likely to get more than that. That’s the lesion that you may wish to get swabbed immediately for your own peace I’d mind. I feel it’s a low chance of.being a herpes lesions from a recent infection.

Hey @WilsoInAus, thanks for the reply . 

The cream I applied got rid of any irritation by this morning and this is a good sign I believe. 

I just had a question with being infected. If I were to be infected for the very first time, would my break out be much severe than what I have ? And could I have an outbreak that fast within just one or two days ? 

 

Really appreciae the help, I am gonna go in tonight to another doctor and see what he says

@Fourtyfourfour it does take on average 4 days for symptoms of herpes to appear minimum about 2.

It wouldn’t go away with any cream in a day if herpes.

An initial infection is often the worst but can be mild. This is often the case for a person with HSV-1 already as there is some cross reaction of the immune system.

Hmm so it’s possible that this is a hsv1 OB ? I’ve had cold sores since I was like 7 or 8

One last question, My glans have improved a lot, redness is almost gone, but the tiny little open sores that looked like insect bites or looked like herpes lesion now has Like a white head after one day of using the cream. This can’t be herpes could it? It looks like a tiny white head pimple. I know what the healing stages look like because I’ve had cold sores multiple times and I’m just confused at this point. There is no oozing or itching. 

Thank you

No, I asked the question about HSV-1 as once you have that, then it is not feasible to get it on your penis, incredibly unlikely.

What having HSV-1 does mean though as mentioned is that HSV-2 symptoms can be slight, just a small lesion for example, perhaps readily aligned to being more of an aggravated pimple.

Your shaft sore doesn't sound much like herpes given timing and progress, but only a swab can be definitive.

I had the same thing after the steroid cream brought down the redness quick.  Left 2 tiny brown lessions.  No blisters.  Still healing as we speak.  Don't use the antiviral cream i think it messed up my healing and scared me.  Went to a lab aftervthe doctor said utvwas a fungal infection.  Got the emailed results have genital herpes.  Hsv2.  Doctor was wrong.  Now on anti virals and destined to be alone forever.

So I did two urine tests and they both came back negative. I’m in japan where technology they use to detect is fairly new and both doctors said hpv can be detected in urine. They think it’s just a bad infection, they said yeast infection can cause sores as well. Should I still get my blood tested ? Most of what I had is gone now btw.

      I too feel that a drug cocktail /might/ succeed as a measure for the meantime, however I am /not/ hopeful that said drug will exist a meaningful amount of time before the cure.

      One more point to add.  I noticed it at 47:46 minute mark: "Single cell analysis suggests that combinations of AAV serotypes effectively transducing all neuronal subsets may allow near complete elimination of latent HSV genomes".  (emphasis mine).  
    • MikeHerp
      Yeah, I understand what you mean.  Still, if it comes to market, it's possible that some people will want to use it as a suppressive, i.e. every day for years.  So potential toxicities might end up building up.  so I think they have to be cautious about that.   A lot of people say they wouldn't mind side effects etc. but if you end up blowing up your kidneys with some herpes meds, then it won't be much fun. Still, they did lift the suspension in the immune compromised, and even fast tracked the testing, so it could be approved after this phase 2 (potentially).  And they may go back to testing in healthy people as well.   Meanwhile, Maruho will be testing amenalief in healthy people in the US in the not to distant future. The near future looks bright for improved herpes meds.  These drugs might end up being a bridge while we wait for the FHC cure/functional cure.  I'm hopeful.

      for most people the virus gets easier over time, so if your just diagnosed and start in with all the natural stuff, of course you think it's working, but it's more than likely just your natural experience with the virus...not to be a debbie downer, just saying.
    • Kurdt01
      Do you have periods of say a few months where it's ok and then periods where it's off the charts and uncontrollable no matter what you do? Thats how mine is. It's always with me but there are periods where it's better than others....some months are ok, some are just relentless herpes....no rhyme or reason...it's never great no matter what.
