Hi I have read that herpes can increase risk of HIV transmission due to white blood cells accumulating at the sore if it was on the scrotum, since the immune system is trying to heal the sore. My question is: are there any other non-std related scrotal lesions that carry this property of accumulating white blood cells? Such as a type of pimple or bump or even scrotal cut? I never had sex before my exposure (it was protected, but my scrotum was still exposed) and there was a bump on my scrotum that has been there for over a month, so I am worried. I do not think it's herpes since I never had a sexual encounter before the exposure. I think this will be my last topic on this site. Thank you to everyone who has provided insight, and I know this may be asking for too much, but I really would appreciate an answer to the question if possible, other than telling me it's no risk because it was protected. A simple yes or no would do, and if yes, what other types have this property. Thank you once again.
