Hi, I recently developed blisters on the base of my penis. This was after over a week of a LOT of sex with the same partner. She had quite a lot of stubble as she normal shaves her pubic region, so I though that this may have been the cause of it, I also developed a very sore red penis for a day but that has cleared now leaving only the blisters left.
My GP advised me that it was HSV and sent me for a blood test, I am going to be waiting a week for the results though.
Do you think this might be the case?
I have no blisters on my head or shaft, only on the area that have a lot of friction with the pubic hair, and they are not itchy (a symptom which I
My guess would be that this is not herpes, but rather the results of irritation. Keep in mind that even if it is herpes, it wouldn't be from this sexual encounter, because first-episode herpes consists of very high fever and swollen glands, not just blisters.
If this were somehow a first attack of herpes, your blood test wouldn't be positive yet, but after a week a herpes culture wouldn't be likely to be positive. My advice therefore is to find out that the test is negative--as it's likely to be--and then to repeat the test in 3 months.
And if the test is negative, next time you get a suspicious rash, show it to a skin doctor with more expertise in herpes....
I have developed something quite similar and would like to hear your opinion.
I have developed tiny blisters that seems to have a clear liquid inside of them. There are maybe 4 or 5 of them in an area that is maybe equivalent to a centimeter or two in diameter. Another user in these forums has described it well as clear sweat bumps. The area is also itchy and obviously unpleasant. I noticed the problem a few days after rigourous masterbation. The first time this occurred, I was tested for herpes and all tests came back negative. This was approximately 2 years ago and since then, ive only had this problem occur once (so once a year maybe - both times after rigourous sex/masterbation). Ive scrolled through these helpful forums a few times and have noticed similar comments, however, as described, my area is itchy.
Any thought? I dont htink its herpes... rather a bad irritation.. however, looking at some pictures through google, it sorta looks like herpes?
Your assitance is appreciated very much.
to add... the first episode did not come with any flu like symptoms or headaches or anything else that accompanies herpes for the first time - hence i was not surprised to learn the first time that my results were negative.
I have been tested positive for HPV. I've been struggling with myself as to confront my husband or not about whether he cheated on me. I finally decided to find out more first before acusing him of that. I understand this is a sexually transmitted disease therefore the only way I could get it is from him as he is my first partner and only partner. If I Was tested negative for HPV when I had my first child w my husband that should mean he was clear then also, is it not correct? Now I have HPV only means that sometime then and now he had another partner that gave the Disease to him and then to me. Or do you get HPV and heal from it and then down the road it just come back again naturally? By the way, if a pair is having oral sex, will the performer of the oral sex get HPV thru the mouth and pass it on by mouth to another person when they kiss that person on the mouth? Or can be it from touching an infected person's private part and then touch their own private part? I think I'm being naive but I want to know all the
