    How long has this been there for mate? Did it come up after a sexual encounter?

      I had a few on my public area then just noticed them two on my shaft, and I'm not sure mate, you any ideas? It doesn't have the cauliflower look that herpes does so I assumed it was hair follicles as it was on my pubic area but not its spread to my shaft so getting a bit concerned

      I'm in the dark myself as to whether I have herpes or not, had lesions come up that healed within a couple of days and couldn't get to the clinic quickly enough to get them swabbed and they don't blood test for herpes in the UK unfortunately (they say it's not reliable at all). The cauliflower look is more likely to be HPV than herpes. Could just be regular pimples or another benign skin condition, best advice is get yourself to the quack or Clinic mate they'll be able to tell you more than what I or anyone else on here will. I wish you well pal

      none at all mate I can't find out if I have herpes or not unless sores come up again and they can swab them which the nurse said was unlikely to ever happen again now.... how about you any update?
