Herpes or something else ?

Posted , 2 users are following.


So I had protected sex and I noticed the next day some grouped small pimples at the base of the penis head barely visible  when erect only when erect. no symptoms 

( this was around October ) 

There was some hygiene ( cleaning in the groin area ) 

Now I realized that the pimples still small but more noticeable and can be found in new spots 

slight burning feeling 

itchy feeling

lower abdominal pain ( often laying down at night )

no discharge 

discoloration spots ( darker spots wasn't there before )  on penis head 

due to the current circumstances I am not able to go to the doctor soon 

Initially i thought it was herpes but 4 months later and the symptoms are slowly getting worse

    Which country are you in, and why aren't you able to see a doctor soon?  (it seems very strange to suspect you have herpes, but not get tested for 4 months).

    The symptoms you describe don't really sound like herpes, but it's hard to say without a pic.  If you want to add a pic, you need to be on a PC or laptop with a large window.  If you are, then you should see some extra icons towards the top right of where you type, and the right hand icon (which I think is supposed to look like the sun over hills) will add images.

    The pic I've attached here shows the icons:

    I have been getting canker sores in my mouth since childhood so I know i have HSV 1 for sure but HSV2 or GHSV1 i am not sure about it

    I haven't seen a doctor because i am off land stationed sorry about that ... the symptoms were not severe at all it just seemed like dry skin initially ... pain is almost non existent thats why i am worried if i am imagining things or not

    can HSV break out last more than 3 months ?

      Possibly a irritation or infection which might need a fungal treatment. Try changing the recent underwear’s or lather you use to soap up. You need to isolate it more to see it detergents used to wash clothing or briefs used as undies or bacteria growth until a doc could see you.
