about 5 months ago an had an unprotected oral sex with a girl. then 3 months later i noticed red rash on my foreskin. so i went to the doctor, he did a swap test on me, he said i was negative for herpes. but i was not persuade by his answer so i waited another month to do the test above. so how can i find out if i have oral or genital? what the chance that the test results above are inaccurate? i do have a girl friend now. she went tested for herpes at PPH about a month ago is she is negative. how long should she wait to do it again. if in fact that i have hsv 1. how can i find out when did i got it and how to prevent from contract to other people. please advice, thank you for your reply.

odds are your hsv1 is oral. a rash showing up 3 months post encounter isn't likely to be hsv1 from receiving oral from that gal.

you don't need to test any further from that encounter.

really no reason for your gf to retest either unless she gets any symptoms.

http://www.ashastd.org/herpes/herpes_learn_oralherpes.cfm  is a terrific website for more info on oral herpes.

odds are your hsv1 is oral. your rash doesn't really sound like it is herpes related.

grace,

the rash looked just like herpes.  it was itching/burn and has discharge on it. but it went away in about 6 days.  by reading your reply, i guess there isn't a sure answer or test that i can do to determine whether my hsv1 is oral or genital or both.  is that correct. please help.  also is there away to tell when did i contract with this virus or atleast the time frame.  thanks Grace.

no way to figure out when you did contract it.

should your symptoms reoccur, be seen promptly for a lesion culture and typing.
