About 6 days ago I had unprotected sex with a girl I had only just met. She said she didn't have anything, but I can't be sure. 4 days later I noticed two small cuts or openings (blisters?) on my two fingers, one on each. They are on the first knuckle behind the nail. There weren't there before and I don't think I had cut myself or anything...they seemed to just appear. I looked and they were there. That was two days ago and they haven't changed much since, even though I've been putting Neosporin and band-aids on them. They did sting, but not extraordinarily so, and they didn't itch that I remember.
The following day after that (yesterday) I began to feel run-down, almost like I had a cold or something. I felt sorta out of it like I do when I have a cold and I was sneezing at times and my throat hurt. My nose runs a little bit. I even felt a little nauseous at times. Today was no better. I slept all day and I still feel run-down and tired. I've also noticed that my penis and testicles feel very itchy at times, but it doesn't last very long. It comes and goes.
So I am wondering if I may have gotten Herpes??? Does this sound at all consistent with Herpes? I've looked into it and found out about Herpetic Whitlow. I had also fingered the girl, so that caught my attention. However, all the pics of that I have seen look more intense than what I have. Yet what I have now doesn't look simply like a cut, I don't think. They look like fissures on my knuckles. I've also read that people sometimes have "flu-like symptoms", but of course it may just be a normal cold in my case. Is it normal to sneeze and have a nose that runs with Herpes?
Beyond that question, I'd also like to know if there is any benefit to being seen by a doctor right away with this if it is Herpes? Other than being sick and uncomfortable I'm not in any great pain...so is there anything that the doctor would do that would definitely make it worthwhile to go right away? I plan on waiting and then going to get tested for STDs at some point further out, so that the tests are accurate.
Also, if it is Herpes that I have on my fingers is it safe to say I wouldn't break out in the genital area sense I have not done so already even though it itches at times? I'm hoping the itching down there is just normal and I'm making more of it. I guess the question is, would you break out everywhere all at once?
Sorry for such a long post with many questions. Your answers are much appreciated.
