Concerned about cut?
So I made a terrible decision two days ago to have sex (protected) with a sex worker. Woke up the next morning and saw what appeared to be a cut or a pimple on the skin connecting my penis and scrotum. Popped it and some hardened pus was extracted.

This is how it looked yesterday.

Now I shaved a few days prior and getting bumps/acne after shaving is not uncommon for me. So does that cut look concerning?

Deathly afraid of having contracted anything. What's the chances of me having contracted HSV2 from a one time act? She appeared clean but I am aware of asymptomatic shedding.

That looks like a surface cut that has opened up a little.

A herpes cut will usually present more a a dry slit, think of a deep paper cut. If you got pus out of it, then most likely not herpes.

Chances per episode are say 1 in 5000 with condom and assuming she actually had HSV2.

Thank you. Also immensely worried about HPV. Would never want to give high risk strains of HPV such as 16 or 18 to a woman. I know this is a HSV board but do you have any numbers/percentages on the chances of contracting HPV?

In any case, lesson learned.

Your chance of hpv us very very low. I wouldn't be overly concerned.
