I last had sex (in the dark) about 2 months ago and since I had no symptoms until a couple days ago, I thought I was home free. Then just a couple days ago I started getting a red rash around the base of my penis. The next day it spread up my shaft and now its all over my L1 dermatome, except for my back side.

Since it'd been so long since my last sexual contact I thought it couldn't be GHSV at first. But then I read that primary infection can take longer in people with HSV1 antibodies, and i've had HSV1 since childhood.

So i'm 3 days into primary OB and I have an itchy rash on my penis, right inner thigh, and the sides of my hips.

I see from reading posts that lots of people get a rash on their thighs; did anyone get it on the sides of their hips? Did anyone else get their primary OB so long (2 months) after infection?

Thanks

My primary outbreak was about 8-10 months later. I haven't had any rash. I like soaking in an epsom salts bath for relief...you might give it a try.

I hope you feel better soon!
