IT WONT LEAVE ME ALONE

this one is for grace. i posted here about two or three years ago and you were a great help to me (especially with that tough love). i was in a situation where i experienced month after month different lesions on my penis where one day it burned for a second then i got a bump. i was visually diagnosed as an irritation or pimple and no swab was done because it had been a week since the lesion was present. this was a bit of a rough patch in my life. im done with that but. ive never "tingled" but the spot where the bump was, i keep getting shooting burns right on the skin. doctors wont diagnose me as i have had negative herpes blood tests(although i do get coldsores)(igg herpes select hsv1 and 2). my question is as follows
does the herpes burn shoot in for about a second as a prodrome or does it last for a day or two before lesions appear. it has been three years since i have been getting this occasional pulsating burn.(feels like when a dentist hits the nerve when youre getting a cleaning). but it shoots and lasts for about less than a second. is this typical ?

herpes prodromes are fairly constant for a few hours or a day or so before obvious lesions. not something that only lasts seconds.

honestly this sounds like nothing worrisome at all. we all get aches and pains.

sorry to question. but it is localized to where ive had a "herpetic" (and i put in quotations as it was not diagnosed) lesion, and it just seems so odd that it shoots and burns right on the skin. it catches me off guard and goes away within seconds if not milliseconds.

as I said, this sounds like nothing.

another question i have for you is that when they say painful urination flowing over sores what does that mean? does that mean if you havea sore on your penis you will feel the sore more as urine goes through your urethra? or is it actually for women getting urine on the sores when they are peeing ?

well the reason for this is i did experience this when the sore was present. thats why im asking. not that urine actually touched the sore but i felt it tingle as i was peeing. im a bit confused with your answer grace so i do apologize

urine flowing over open lesions hurts, it hurts A LOT!  A tingle when urinating is different.

if you can't let go your fear of having herpes, get a herpes WB  but promise yourself you'll accept the results and move on.
