Hi, thats not an area where herpes develops as the skin is to thick and not many nerve for the virus to enter.
Also using the condom and with no visible sore from her, the odds that this is herpes is close to zero. Also 48 hours is really to soon for sores to develop and since there are hairs growing up the middle would appear to be inflamed hair folicles.
If you concerned have a doc swab them. Since your swinging you might want to be tested for herpes anyway for the other people protection as often there are no symptoms with herpes.
Wow. Thanks for the lightening quick response. Like I said I had recently been tested and "swinging" is not a normal thing for me.
Your statement that herpes does not develop in that area is contradictory to everything else I have read on the internet. It does not appear to be uncommon to get genital herpes on your scrotum. Again, I agree with you that this is most likely not genital heroes but it is nice to have the expertise of professionals to apply to specific incidents.
I endorse comments made by Life360. The scrotum consists of very thick skin and few nerve endings within. It is also quite difficult to rub the scrotum area away from the shaft. I'm not sure where you are reading about herpes on the net, but I assure you, scrotum only herpes is very rare.
I'd have to agree though, the risk of there being an STD present or HSV seems above average. Oral sex represents exposure to HSV1 if the giver has HSV1, that is, oral cold sores.

Explain this comment to me if you would...
I would think it is a good idea to consider testing after this encounter. Maybe I have a bias against people found over the net who claim to be STD free, plenty of stories on here to attest to that.
If there was any HSV risk in this encounter, then it would much more likely come from receiving unprotected oral sex from someone who has oral HSV1. In all instances though, infection per encounter is incredibly low and you used protection for the vaginal sex.
Thanks for the advice. I will take it to heart.
