Hello . I was diagoned with herpes 4 weeks before . On october 11 i had sex with sexworkers . I have no itchy no pain no sores in my penis nd i have no symptoms . On november 8 i go to massage centre nd they do hand job to me . Within 2 days i feel more itchy nd burning in my penis nd developed 4 to 5 bumps but no pus in it . I had mild fever , headache , backpain nd lower extermities pain . After 7 days the symptoms go away nd i back to normal . On november 16 i go to test centre nd they give me hsv positive .

Hi, bumps that you are describing donot suggest herpes as dont stay there that long and the other std that causes bumps like that, maybe a fungal infection.
You should find out if you have hsv1 or hsv2 and what test did you have and any numbers involved

Most likely you have oral hsv1 that you got when you were a child.

Having a massage would not expose you to herpes. Maybe just a common flu
