One Saturday night after using the restroom, I felt a small sore patch of open skin on the opening my urethra that I had never felt before. (I dab with toilet paper every time I urinate, so I knew it was brand new.) I went to the ER and the doctor swabbed the lesion (quite roughly) for herpes to "rule it out because it looked like it could possibly be that, but to not lose too much sleep over it yet" I was also tested for syphilis and that blood test came back negative. 3 days or so later, the herpes swab also came back negative, for both HSV I and II. This lesion took about 5 days to heal, and at first turned into a white patch, and then dark red. I was putting coconut oil on it every day. I did have painful, dark, cloudy urination during this time, but I had been dealing with a UTI that never got fully cleared (I had an adverse reaction to Cipro, and although the urine test said there was still bacteria present, the NP told me to stop taking the Cipro and that the infection should go away. I do not feel like it did)
Anyway, 6 days after the appearance of the first lesion, I felt a sore spot on the shaft of my penis. I took a look, and it looked like a soft pink smooth spot, flush with the skin, with a long. somewhat thick, reddish cut across the middle of it. I also had another red spot near the top of my penis on the foreskin, but no cut or soreness associated with that spot. I applied coconut oil to the entire area, and about 7 hours later, there was absolutely no trace of the cut whatsoever. I found that odd, even with the application of coconut oil. 5 days later, after continuous use of coconut oil 2-3 times a day, the pink spots are still there, unchanged. I have felt occasional itching briefly in my pelvic area once or twice over the last week and a half that this has been going on, but unsure if it's just normal itching. I had a photo of the cut lesion, and someone thought it did not look like herpes, that I could have nicked it during the times I was inspecting my genitals with my nails (I hadn't trimmed my nails) but it just seems like too much of a coincidence.
Should I rely on the negative results of the swab of the first lesion? What would be a reason for the pink blotches to not change at all? Perhaps they were always there and I never noticed them. They are not something I would have noticed if I wasn't inspecting for lesions.
The possible exposure was 6 and a half weeks prior to appearance of the first lesion (I rubbed my penile head on an anus, briefly, for about 5-10 seconds. This is how I got the UTI.)
I had another sexual encounter 14 days before the appearance of the urethral lesion, but I was only the receptive anal partner, and had a jock strap on so my genitals were covered, and my genitals were not even touched by this partner anyway. I have not had any anal lesions, so I do not think this encounter is relevant, but I thought I would mention it just in case. I also went on PEP for HIV after this encounter.
