Its been about a year since I last posted and I have another concern. Sometime around Jan I had unprotected sex a few times over the span of a few weeks. No noticeable symptoms at all until late Febrauary (definitely none within the first two weeks to a month).
In late Feb, however, I had a sore develop on my scrotum and thought nothing of it because I know herpes, and especially initial outbreaks, do not generally occur there. Then this past May the same bump occurred so I figured I would get the IGG test just to be sure. It came back negative and I let this go (the female said she was not aware of any std's she has and that she gets tested, although herpes is not usually done unless sores are present.)
Here is when things get a bit weird. Last Thursday I felt awful (fever, loss of appetite, etc.). Then I went golfing Friday and at night I noticed a tick on the very tip of my penis (I know, weird, but it happened). On Sunday, I noticed a red bump that is very near where the tick bit me but not exactly, and I don't remember if it was embedded or not as I didn't waste much time getting it off obviously. it def. wasn't very deep in.
Now the bump looks just like a herpes blister. There is a raised red portion with a scab right in the middle. I still have loss of appetite, fatigue, and noticeable weekness. Is there any chance the bloodtests are still showing a false neg after this much time has passed? I wouldn't worry about the bump so much as obviously I had a tick in almost the exact same spot, but the symptoms I am having plus the bump have me concerned. But then rationally I think, what are the chances that a herpes bump shows up a day or two after I get bit by a tick in the exact same spot coupled with the neg test after about 4 months.
I'm hoping a little more rationality on your part will help me. Thanks so much.
