I had protected sex with a sex worker 3 and a half weeks ago and oral and vaginal yesterday morning I woke up to urinate and saw white dry stuff around the head of my penis the night before I masturbated and I dont think I cleaned the exes semen from the head of my penis, I washed the area and what was underneath the white dry thing it was read even the foreskin of my penis the one that covers the head was red. I remember this hapening before maybe twice. By the time I got home in the afternoon it was almost gone I took a shower and when I went to sleep it was almost all gone the red part. I went to my doctor today and showed him he said that it looked like a fungul infection and prescribed somethi g for it. I asked if he would do test to see if its herpes he said it wasnt necessary but he said if I wanted he could run a set of std test. They drew blood after when I was about to leave I asked what test they were doing and they only did hiv ghonorrea clamydia syphilis how much do general doctors really know on distinguishing herles from yeast infection. Im married and I would not want to give this to my wife. Bad part is 4 days sfter the exposurr we did have unprotected sex what should I do should I trust my doctor
What you describe sounds nothing like herpes and everything like a fungal problem. I agree with your doctor on this one.
How much do doctors know about herpes, however? Very little, in my experience. But in this case, I think you are probably OK. for future reference, condoms reduce transmission of HSV by only about 30-50%. Just so you know.
Thankyou terri I think I am going to follow your advice. Just to clear my mind would herpes clear up from one day to another? I know experts have been telling me not to test but im just very concerned how accurate would a 6 week full panel be? Would you advice to wait 3 months
