This forum is an un-mediated, patient-to-patient forum for questions and support regarding herpes issues such as: Herpes symptoms and treatments, causes, diagnosis, and herpes in men, tests, telling your spouse or partner.
Hey all, noticed this today. I admit, I have taken part in some risky activities lately. It doesn't hurt, or sting and doesn't feel like a bump at all. It's not open either. When I stretch it, it's flat. Just visible. No others like it around. Wondering if it's something to worry about or what.
Apologies, I'm not sure there is a way to edit my post and remove the link. It's a very small spot, like the tip of a ballpoint pen. I didn't feel it, just noticed it. I would expect something like herpes (from what I've read) to sting, but I tried rubbing it a lot (probably irritated it!) and it doesn't feel any different from the rest of the skin around it. I put cortisone cream on it and made an appointment with a urologist, but that's next week...I'll watch it and update
One comment...the "Important Announcements" link is not very noticable on the forum page. I also wouldn't have expected it to be classified as an "Annoucement," rather a "Rule." I tried looking for rules earlier and didn't see anything that prohibited pictures - usually those are in bold "sticky" posts that always appear at the top.

preaching to the choir about the new changes to the forum by medhelp. before we had the read before posting post as a locked post right at the top of the forum that was very easy to see. Unfortunately I've gotten nowhere so far with my complaints about the change :(
this doesn't sound like it's much of anything. your regular provider is a more appropriate person to see for this, not an urologist. Urologists are more for "plumbing" issues than for rashes.
