A few weeks ago noticed a raw red spot on the head of my penis. I then stupidly continued to masturbate and eventually 3 spots formed. I stopped masturbating a little over a week ago and now they are finally starting to appear to be healing. I apply some cortizone once. I just want to make sure its not herpes. Just so you know I have never had any type of sex (anal, vaginal, or oral). They never really hurt to badly except i believe when i masturbated while having them. So im nervous, even though I dont know how it could be herpes, so do you think it is? If now why did it take so long for the spots to heal? Thanks so much...
