Hi doctor  hope you are fine

I used to be sexuality active but I used condom but on oral not always
In June I felt some tingling and burning on my rigth side of my groin I thought it's from shaving and I used many creams there were no rash or anything just burning and tingling for two months. Then I met two guys we did oral sex after  a week I got pain and swelling on bladder and I thought it's from gyming and I went to pharmacy and gave me pain relif next day on same area I saw white head pimple or bump also with rash left and rigth side of groin and 2 bump on the top of penis rigth hand side shaft and one on scotrum both of them were hard and painless and no itching then I went to pharmacy and he gave me a cream 2% cortisone from Leo company . Next day I went to doctor he saw the rash and said it's heat rash on the groin but I didn't show him the rest . The rash and the swollen with whitehead pimple clear next day just the 2 bump on penis and scotrum took like 3 or 4 days and disapper all clear it on 5 days only by using this cream .then. I did full STD plan after 2 weeks which come all back negative only hsv1 positive so I thought I have genital herpes but still I have some symptoms like burning and pain on bladder and burning on penis and scotrum and nerve pain on thigh and legs and hands and also facial I know it's alot for this virus to do but I don't know you are the doctor and u can help me

I'm out of the country this week, but will answer these when I can.  It isn't immediate.  

Your symptoms don't sound like herpes, but bumps are always a slight concern because our definition of a bump and mine might be different.  If it was oral sex only, then the risk is HSV 1.  YOu test positive for HSV 1, and though you report a possible history of cold sores, it doesn't seem very certain.  An antibody can't tell you where your infection is, only that you have it.  If you have had it orally it is very unlikely that you will get it genitally.

The bump which I mean it one was on private area with white head I felt pain before its appear the pain not the white head pimple or bump its on the skin around it just by antibiotic cream it disppear by the next day with the pain which I took also pain relif
The other two bump on penis top shaft and scotrum didn't look like the one on private area also all these two look different from each other  but they were painless and no itching and hard but both of them look almost white
After 5 days all of them clear it up then I felt some pain and discomfrt on groin and bladder area but nothing in penis and scotrum
After I did the test and doctor told me that I have hsv1 and after the reading in websites and checking my genital I felt the pain and burning in it and I did urine test and the doctor found some bacteria just told me drink a lot of water and its clear then after this test I did another one and it was clear from bacteria
I spoke with urology and he told me mybe this prostatis or fungal
But still some discomfort and pain I don't know how I expain all the symptoms
As I mention that mybe I have it orally but I'm not sure about it
My question what a disease come in mouth and tongue with sores on it it and fever for a week

You should go back to the doctor and show them everything, They have already seen it all before you!

So I'm a little confused here.  You talk about a bump in your private area, is that different than a bump on your penis?  What is your private area if not your penis? Was any testing done of the bump?  So did it last just one day and then went away?  Are you also having sores in your mouth?  I know you are doing your best to explain this to me!  

What about sexual exposures?  When was the last time you had sex with anyone?

Thanks terri
Sorry I mean my public hair there was a pain then next day one white head pimple / bump come out and 2 on penis shaft and the other one one scotrum
I used antibiotic on these area., the swelling with white head clear in 24 hours but on penis and scotrum took like 3 or 4 days to clear but they were painless and no itching and no redness near it just hard and the bump on scotrum look something white inside it but on penis is different it like with root
Also there was rash on groin and redness and its clear with in 24 hours also
I show it to the doctor and he said its heat rash just I show him my groin
All of them come together
Before this happened I was feeling some burning and discomfrt on rigth hand side of my groin for more than a month since my last encounter safe just anal
And kissing
I did many test after this encounter but not hsv because I don't know about this disease
After all this tests I felt I'm clear just my worries only was about hiv and then I met two guys and I did oral with them in one week after that I get all the symptoms which I detait it above
About mouth sores yes I had it when I was child but only inside my mouth and on tongues with a fever
My last time was on july just oral since this I'm with this all symptoms pain on the head of penis burning on scotrum and buttocks and discomfort on groin with pressure and nerve pain in hands and legs and foot and face
Some day I'm ok and then it comes back
I hope you understand what I said and thanks
Sorry about my english

I'm not sure what those white bumps are but they honestly don't sound herpetic to me and the come and go rather quickly for herpes.  The kind of herpes that you would get from oral sex only is almost always HSV 1, not HSV 2.  The rash you have had in your mouth previously could or could not have been oral herpes, hard to say.  

I would try to disregard the sensations that you are describing and focus on skin changes if you can.  If you get another white bump, I would encourage you to go in immediately and have it evaluated.  I don't recall - have you had any testing for herpes yet?

I'm just confused about it
I get pain before it's come out in my public hair and I saw 2 bumps one on penis mid shift and one on scotrum but there was no pain or warning sign before they come I mean which were on penis and scotrum only the pain was on public hair
As I said I used a cream which clear it also i read that u can't treat herpes with antibiotic or it will takes time or get worst to heal
I did both igg and igm positive hsv1 7.4 negative hsv2
This test was after a month from oral sex
All the time when I shave my public hair with penis and scotrum after 4 or 5 days I see infected hair so can this be just infected hair infection not genital herpes
Thank you and you are the best

I would disregard any IgM test results.

The igm is negative for both
The igg is postive for hsv1 and the reading was 70.4 I know is different than the number you used in usa
The name of the test is elisa igg
Do you think its false positive
You said my symptoms don't sound herpetic
Thank you for your time

I"m sorry, I can't interpret those test results.  They are on a scale I'm not familiar with.

Hi Terri hope ur fine
Just update on my situation I had similar bump on public hair near my penis with pain when I was touch it yellow fluid come out and the pain gone so at the same day I went to doctor and he swabbed and come negative herpes 1 and 2 pcr test
I'm confused about this I'm fraid it's false negative because when he swab the bump he took two simples one the whole bump and the other one the blood from the bump and put it in cup with a liquid inside it and send it to another country so I'm fraid that it die due the time and transportation and I read in the paper they check it after 6 days from swabbing it
Plz I want to know if it true negative or
Thanks and happy new year
Sorry for my English
Blank
