Possible STD? Esp worried about Herpes...
Hi, great forum btw

I'm an un-circumsized 30year old male, and I had protected vaginal sex with an eastern european CSW a week and a half ago.  She performed unprotected oral sex on me for quite some time, and I performed unprotected oral sex on her.  I didn't ejaculate in her mouth - sorry for gory details...

I had a slightly red patch at the base of the head of my penis after a couple of days which I assumed was from friction.  I now have several raised lumps in this area.  They aren't painful.  I don't have any pain when I urinate.  I've had them for over 24hours now and they don't appear to be changing.

I'm freaked out that I've got herpes and I cant stop checking them every time I go to the toilet.

I plan to go to a local GUM clinic tomorrow to get checked by a doctor here in the UK but in the mean time I wondered if anyone could re-assure me that this isn't Herpes!

Hope to hear from you soon.

This doesn't sound like herpes going on and sounds more like a fungal infection to me. Herpes transmission through oral is rare and the bumps would be painful if this was herpes.

Not always painful. Your best bet would be to get them checked out right now. We would be guessing what it is here and someone seeing it right away will tell you what they think. Could it be herpes? Yes. Likely, probably not but, again, we would be guessing and seeing it first hand by a doctor would be your best course of action. Being in the UK, it isn't easy getting the HSV Test conducted. Get it checked out now before these things do disappear and then you would have to wait a few months before getting tested.

the only std testing from your encounter that was accurate was ngu, chlamydia and gonorrhea.  it was too early for any other std testing to be accurate.

typically the gum clinics don't offer type specific herpes igg blood testing either. do you know if you've ever had herpes blood testing prior to this?  can you recall ever having had a cold sore before?

Hi Grace

Thanks for your response.

I haven't had Herpes testing before this.  And also I don't think I've ever had a cold sore...  Mouth Ulcers yes, but not cold sores on the outside of mouth/lips etc.

Thanks

you will need to repeat your syphilis testing 6 weeks post encounter.  herpes, hiv and hepatitis testing 3 months post encounter.  you will probably need to seek out the type specific herpes igg blood testing from a private clinic and pay out of pocket to get the right testing done.
