Herpes sore from massage

Hello everyone. I am 26 M. 2 days back I went to a massage parlor. I was naked but the lady was dressed. The lady gave a handjob. After the handjob she used a hot towel to wipe the semen in my body. Today I have a small bump near the genital hair area. It is little itchy. When I shine my phone light. I can see the bump. Please let me know if I have contracted genital herpes from the lady's hand or the towel. I am really scared. And I regret going to the massage parlor.

No, this can't be herpes - it requires direct, unclothed skin to skin contact - oral to genital, genital to genital or genital to anal.

Did you use any oil with the massage? Perhaps you have a clogged oil gland or an infected hair follicle something. Keep an eye on it, looking for any redness or swelling, or if the area gets warm. I wouldn't be worried at all. You had no risk for any STIs, including herpes, and should be fine.

Thanks for your response. No did not use oil for the massage. She used hand soap liquid for the handjob/massage. Also the hot towel to wipe by body.  The sore is similar to a follicle. But it is inflamed.  It is little irritating and I have to constantly check the sore using my phone light. Please let me know.
You should get this checked by a doctor if you are concerned, but it is not herpes.

You don't "have" to constantly check the sore. Let a doctor look at it. If you are constantly looking at it, you may be keeping it irritated. Leave it alone and let a doctor see it.
