Herpes? Or something else?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 
 
 
I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago, and noticed what I thought was a pimple or ingrown hair at the base of my penis about 3-4 days later. At first I didn't think anything of it, because I had done some shaving as well. But I'm now starting to get worried. 
 
Besides the red spot, I have felt the need to urinate more frequently, which is what made me start thinking something else was going on. 
 
I do have an appointment with a doctor next week to get tested regardless, I'm just panicked now. 
 
 
The spot never blistered, it has just been a red lump with what looked like a white head pimple. I did pop it not thinking, and what came out was a white solid like a pimple. It has only been this one spot as well. 
 
 
Does this look like it could possibly be herpes?

Hello Bd2132, it does look like herpes. But to be completely sure get tested. That's the only way to be 100% sure. Hope things turn out well for you. If you do have herpes just remember there are a lot of people on this cite that will help you. Blessed be

Herpes blisters typically are clear fluid filled. Also, you would typically have more than a singular blister. I lean away from it being herpes.

It also is not, and never was a blister. Just inflammation, with what I would describe as solid white pus. It is firm to the touch, and visually has not changed since I first noticed it about 12 days ago. 

And from what I've read over the past few days, I don't have any other symptoms of herpes. I'm hoping you're correct, and it's something else.

If it has not changed in appearance in 12 days, that makes it practically zero chance for herpes.  Herpes moves through its various stages quickly.  It does not stay in a constant state like you describe.  Try to relax.  If truly worried  show your health care provider for reassurance but Im sure they will tell you this is not herpes.

That is good to hear! I have my appointment this evening, so hopefully they agree it is something else. It has not changed in appearance since Friday when I originally posted also.

      Hey, @WilsoInAus thank you for replying.  Just those symptoms and this thread and some other thread on medhelp, I am so regretted and afraid. Thank you for your kind reply. When such sores come out again, I will definitely have a swab test.  It was so hard to get back to normal life.

      Hey @AlexUobby you have a 16 week test result that is conclusively negative. You have not had lesions at the possible site of entry to your body for the virus.  That does add up to a closed case, no genital herpes (or soup) for you!

      Hey, it has been a while. I have posted before and received great help. But I got a new situation here.  1. A few days ago, I found 2 round scabs on the right side of my butt cheek. And then it occurs to me that I have the similar scabs in this area in January. I can't get a swab test because it has developed scabs.  But to be honest, it really looks like some pictures of herpes. I was very confused. And I noticed some marks of dried blood nearby. Can we say it was not herpes because lesions caused by herpes don't bleed? I have the obsession, always want to use my hand to scratch my butt. Last time it showed up, I thought it might be the cause. 2. Several days ago, I found some cut-like lesions on my right groin, too. The same lesions have showed up on the 21 day of my exposure, but it healed on the 24 day. And I have seen the same lesions showed up on March 24. They were always on my right groin. Never see one on there left. I sent the pictures to 2 doctor online(because of the pandemic), they both thought it wasn't herpes.  The hospitals in my city don't offer swab test,  so I must go to the city nearby. When such lesions show up next time, I will have a swab test.  1) Can we say the first lesions were not herpes because it bleed?  2) Can we say the second lesions were not herpes because the initial outbreak was so short?  3) I know recurrent herpes can show up in the box short area. But is it possible it changes its place in just 5 months?  3 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative 6 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative Roche Elecsys HSV I and II Igg negative HSV II Igg = 0.06(0.5~1.0 grey zone) 12 week a test produced by a company call Dia.pro HSV I Igg negative  HSV II Igg positive I did the same test 3 times, the value is 1.2, 1.4, 1.9 16 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative Roche Elecsys HSV I and II Igg negative HSV II Igg = 0.073(0.5~1.0 grey zone)
