Forgot to add that I did have itchiness around the eyes and legs during some of this as well but the overriding thing was the stinging/burning at the point of the sore and urethra.
This could be many things - including herpes or a bacterial/fungal infection. If you've never had a herpes blood test before - get one now so you have a baseline to compare future tests too since it seems like it's too late to get an accurate lesion culture. Then repeat it in 3 months. should you get a return of symptoms before then - get them cultured for herpes and typed. Insist they type it since it very well might be hsv1 genitally since you received oral sex. Have you ever had a herpes blood test before? Can you recall ever having cold sores before?
A visual exam by a medical practioner is pretty useful. If he didn't think it looked like herpes - it very well might not have been. Yeast is also very commonly transmitted from the mouth to the genitals in both males and females thru oral sex.
Thank for taking the time to help me out. I did get the test and am awaiting the results. To answer your question, I have not ever had a cold sore before. Hopefully I will know in the next few days and can get a course of treatment - whatever that might be.
Grace, I have learned a hard lesson to be safe always. Never again will I do anything even mildly risky. I wish growing up I had real sex ed so I knew this stuff.
Turns out I am negative for HSV I & II so that is not the problem. Finishing up my prescription of fluconazole and feeling better & it seems to be clearing up minus some reddish remainder. I am going in again to see if he can check it out to be sure.
