May have contracted herpes? HSV? Very scared.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Very concerned and looking for some guidance.

13 days ago, on August 6th, I had a brief encounter of unprotected oral sex. Was very drunk and am somewhat fuzzy on the details but was only in her mouth for maybe 3 minutes and did not ejaculate before realizing what was happening and leaving.

I have since developed a small bump on the shaft of my penis, first appearing on day 9 or 10. It doesn’t sting but does very occasionally itch slightly and is a little tender. I though at first it had a slight white head but now seems just to be slightly discolored and depressed in the center. It may have popped without me noticing or may simply have seemed lighter in color at first. I’m not sure.

Very concerned that I may have contracted an STD and am hoping someone here may be able to give me some guidance (obviously you can’t tell me anything with certainty but I’m scared and would appreciate anything you can do or say).

Have considered herpes, but my understanding is that is usually painful and would present with multiple bumps. HPV is of course a possibility but this is mostly smooth and my understanding is that warts are usually rougher. And my bump doesn’t LOOK like the pictures of molluscum that I’ve seen.

Does this sound like anything you guys have experienced?

I am unfortunately just not able to visit a dr at this time and will not be able to for at least a month due to finances.

      And are usually rounder/more spherical to my understanding. Though there is a very SLIGHT indention on the bump. Less than I have seen in most pictures of molluscum, though.

      To clarify, are you saying you DON'T think it's molluscum?

      And if so does it sound typical of anything else in your experience.

      Thanks in advance for your help. I know you cannot give perfect or 100% accurate advice as you are not a dr examining me in person but I really appreciate the help.

      Freaking out a bit if I'm honest.

      It has occasionally itched or been slightly tender. Usually only if the skin is stretched. Don't really feel anything most of the time and I know I'm super conscious of it right now so that may have something to do with it.

      Very, very mild though.

      First noticed it 3 or 4 days ago.

      Thank you again.
