How can you tell the difference between a possible herpes rash and a yeast rash on the head of your penis??
I had unprotected sex with a friend of mine on may 14th and then again on June 4th. After the 2nd episode, I noticed a red spot on my penis that came and went, and then came back a few days later with more. These red dots then began to open up, and looked white on the end, they itched alot but did not hurt at all. I went to an std clinic and was original told it might be herpes but then was tested and was negative for that. Then I found out the person I was involved with had a yeast infection, and the doctor told me it could be a reaction to that. Now, almost 4 months later, after some masturbation and sex, I noticed a red spot on the head of my penis, basically in the same location as the original rash. Then, two more, at the same time this week I caught a cold. I have a mild fever of 99.7, and the four spots have now opened up a little, and look white on the tips. Again they do not hurt, or even itch this time, only every once in a while i feel a little tingling.
