In may 2013 I had sex with a girl (using a condom) shortly after I found out that she had herpes hsv2
I went around 7 days after and recieved my first test. As well my scrotum became an irritated and had a redness to it adjoined by lower back pain, slightly sick feeling... Through the next three months I went for several blood specific test, and two biopsies... This included an internal disease specialist and a dermatologist.
So my question the redness went away I was feeling confident in my test results and thanked god.
Now I have a flair up that has been present from 1/5 to 1/13/2013 so far
Symptoms same as the first scrotum red(no apparent bumps etc) right testy sore, lower back sore, of course a bitter mood (feeling down)
Does this sound like herpes ?
Can the flair ups cause just redness?
I've read symptoms that say herpes can be very mild lesions to redness ?
Thank you for the reply, I have not had any partners since...
I went back to the dermatologist and was prescribed an antibiotic for msra ... The redness persist though, wouldn't msra cause boils and such?
Symptoms seem to flair up as every herpes out break that you read about just no lessons.
