I have been with the same girl for Time now. We were slip up about 11 months ago and she ha unprotected sex with a guy but was checked and cleared afterwards. We were split up a bit later on and I had sex with a girl but I used a condom. That was about 3 moths ago. We have only been with each other and I know for a fact she has not slept with anyone because we live together and work together. But randomly the other day I got a small form of a rash right above my penis. I was In the woods about 4 days ago and got a lot of bugs on me from a dead tree I picked up and I thought it could have been from that. I used a&d ointment on it but then I started to worry so I searched the web for images of herpes and it looks similar but I am not sure if they are or not. Could someone please help me identify this rash.
Thank you grace. I didn't know there were two types of testing. I thought when they tested you they checked for everything. Also on every thing I found it says that you will see signs on herpes after 2-20 days within contact... Why would it just randomly show up if it is herpes.
