Recommended Posts

my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and I had a yeast infection, but didn't know I did, I found out I had one the next day, couple days later my boyfriends penis became dry, slight itchy but not really, couple days later he had flakey skin from being dry and a blister right before the head of his penis, it popped the flakey skin fell off, now where the blister was looks like small cuts.. could this be from my yeast infection?? and is it herpes? I do not have herpes, and I am the only person he's been with.

Symptoms of herpes can manifest like a yeast infection. It is not necessary to have classic symptoms to have herpes. Many people have herpes and do not know it.

You can acquire a genital infection from someone simply performing oral sex on you if they carry the virus or have ever suffered from coldsores or fever blisters. You do not need to have sexual intercourse to be infected with genital herpes.

To get a diagnosis you can have a swab of sores if they are present (should be in the first 48 hours) or if you have been infected in the past you can have a blood test done that tests for the presence of antibodies to the virus.

Your boyfriend should see a dr regarding the symptoms he describes and so should you.

You can't get herpes from a yeast infection. You can only get herpes from herpes. But you can be a carrier or he could be and never know. I do think getting tested would be a good thing for both of you. That way you know and there is no more guessing. If you are positive you have never had herpes before (i.e. You have been tested...and recently) it's probably not herpes, but if neither of you have been tested...get tested. And soon.

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
