      Don't forget there are two promising vaccines on the prophylactic front (but only pre-clinical): The Trivalent vaccine worked well on guinea pigs:  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32347775/ The Einstein (Xvax) vaccine also has a ways to go: https://x-vax.com/ The fact HSV529 is in yet another clinical trial is good news for herpsters.

      thank you for the info. I am uncircumcised. I applied some clotrimazole cream during the last outbreak I noticed, which seem to do the trick (around a month ago). But now, there new dots are appearing at a different location on the glans. Wasnt sure if balanitis can come back so soon or if it could be something else.

      Looks like mild balanitis. If you are uncircumcised then thats normal every now and then due to accumulation of yeast and the irritation of the foreskin

      I think the simple reason is that this is a fund raiser that was started by our community rather than by Fred Hutch.  Or rather, FHC started it in response to our request.   I still think they should somehow feature it in their pages.  But anyway, that's just how they do it. Keep in mind that FHC's main focus is curing cancer.  It's a cancer research institute.  They might feel that putting stuff on their website that isn't directly related to cancer might give people the impression, especially cancer cure donors (who are by far the main donors to FHC), that FHC is losing its focus. So we have to work within these limits.   However, I do draw strength from the fact that FHC has tried to help us with the fund raiser.  Among others: 1.  When the new research paper is released, FHC has gotten an agreement with a prominent sexual health blogger, to promote the research and the fund raiser. 2.  There is another potential promotion in the works that might get back on track if the US is able to get the coronavirus under control. So FHC has actively helped us to promote the fund raiser.

Is this herpes? (Photo Attached)

hi all,


So about 1 and a half weeks ago I had protected sex (was unsure about the integrity of the condom) and I wasn’t sure what her hsv status was. Over the course of a week I noticed it began to burn when I pee and my groin itched a lot (not sure if this is psychological, not so much anymore). 
 

But now tiny patches of bumps like these have appeared on my penis head (only the head) and I’m not sure what they could be. Anyone have any thoughts?

Thank you in advance!

Herpes blisters would show up on a patch or red / inflamed skin.  
 

this skin looks perfectly normal.  it could also be early stages and more will develop.  
 

at this point I say no, but let’s wait and see.

Hard to say. 

If you had burn during urination you would know if it was beyond 'dehydration' or acidic urine. The burn is quite sharp and raw compared to acidic urination, in the case of herpes. 

Get swabbed before any potential signs go away.

Thank you all for the responses, however I recently had white discharge followed by a burning pain which went away quickly. The bumps remain skin colored and scatter as in the pic before.

im going to get tested but am not sure if it’s hsv2 or could be something else. Thoughts?
