Hello I've had a rash around the head of my penis and shaft now for almost 2 weeks, I did receive brief oral sex almost 4 weeks ago that lasted 10 seconds, the girl did not have any noticeable herpes on or around her lips. My rash has been itching and every once in awhile tingles, but it has almost been 2 weeks the itching has been going on without lesions red raised bumps.does this sound like the initial outbreak for heroes? & how long after a rash as I described can you expect blisters, ulcers, &the outbreak to stop, I can't find answers please help thanks
Thank you so much for all your help, I have a few more questions then hopefully I'm done with the posts.If its not herpes what could it possibly be? I left out some things in my previous posts, ever since 2 days of the rash I jumped to conclusions and have been applying hydrogen peroxide to the area twice a day, could this be causing the irritation, it does feel
raw at times? & I have had unprotected sex in the past it was a long time ago,never had any symptoms before,I did do an HIV test 8 months after the exposure & it was negative that being said could my symptoms of a 2 week rash with itch likely be HSV2? I also had an upper respiratory infection around the time of the rash, I was on antibiotic, someone told me it's possible to get male yeast infections, could that be what this is?
