    hey guys, im 19 and had sex with a girl a month and a half ago. I didnt wrap because my friends knew her really well and she said she was always watching for anything abnormal going on down there. Anyway...everything was fine and dandy until one of my friends mentioned he knew someone who had just got herpes. I am kind of a paranoid person so i began watching for every little tiny thing down there and have made some discoveries in which im not sure if they have always been there. 1) about three weeks after the encounter nothing had happened. I was using some crappy face lotion for masturbating and falling asleep right afterward and waking up and going to work as a dishwasher in sometimes the same undies. kinda unclean i know. One day it seemed as if my boxers were rubbing up against the underside of the rim on my penis head on the left side. It was enough to bother me slightly so i examined it and noticed a red area that was pretty red. I applied ointment and the pain hasnt bothered me since. There still remains a red blotch though...not on the head, not on the shaft just underneath the head, but just on the rim area. its barely noticeable when limp and when i get hard it looks a little swelled there. but it has never hurt, itched, burned and feels completely normal in the present day which is 4 weeks later. 2) i noticed very very small white bumps on the head of my penis. I would think they were papules but they dont have a pattern...and they are mostly on the left center of the head. any help is appreciated, thanks :smile:

    Having a doctor check you out is much, much better than any response you will read here.

    1. As Matthew said, go see a doctor.

    2. Use fucking protection in future, don't base judgments that could change your entire (sex) life on the mindless opinions of a few friends or the person you're sleeping with. FFS.

    agree with above.....there is not much a doctor can do unless you have an outbreak because you test the pustule from the ulcer.....but if you're nervous go talk with your doctor, especially if you develop a fever, rash, headache, etc

    i didnt feel like typing up a whole lot so here is a copy and paste from emedicine

    • Genital herpes: HSV-2 is identified as the most common cause of herpes genitalis. However, HSV-1 has been increasingly identified as the causative agent in as many as 30% of cases of primary genital herpes infections likely secondary to orogenital contact. Recurrent genital herpes infections are almost exclusively caused by HSV-2.
      • Primary infection: Primary herpes genitalis occurs within 2 days to 2 weeks after exposure to the virus and has the most severe clinical manifestations. Symptoms of the primary episode typically last 2-3 weeks.
        • In men, painful, erythematous, vesicular lesions that ulcerate most commonly occur on the penis, but they can also occur on the anus and the perineum. In women, primary herpes genitalis presents as vesicular/ulcerated lesions on the cervix and as painful vesicles on the external genitalia bilaterally. They can also occur on the vagina, the perineum, the buttocks, and, at times, the legs in a sacral nerve distribution. Associated symptoms include fever, malaise, edema, inguinal lymphadenopathy, dysuria, and vaginal or penile discharge.
        • Females may also have lumbosacral reticulopathy, and as many as 25% of women with primary HSV-2 infections may have associated aseptic meningitis.
      • Recurrences: After primary infection, the virus may be latent for months to years until a recurrence is triggered. Recurrent clinical outbreaks are milder and often preceded by a prodrome of pain, itching, tingling, burning, or paresthesia.
      • Individuals who are exposed to HSV and have asymptomatic primary infections may experience an initial clinical episode of genital herpes months to years after becoming infected. Such an episode is not as severe as a true primary outbreak.
      • More than one half of individuals who are HSV-2 seropositive do not experience clinically apparent outbreaks. However, these individuals still have episodes of viral shedding and can transmit the virus to their sexual partners.
    • Clinical HSV infections appear as clustered vesicles on an erythematous base. They often progress to pustular or ulcerated lesions, and they eventually form a crust. HSV lesions tend to recur at or near the same location within the distribution of a sensory nerve. Systemic symptoms, such as fever, malaise, and acute toxicity, may accompany the lesions, especially in primary infections. Each condition has associated symptoms and clinical findings (see History above).
    ok i know thats a lot of info but its really good. the test requires taking fluid from the vesicle.....if its positive there is great treatments to help suppress outbreaks, its acyclovir and other drugs similar to it.

    Everyone has an opinion and I'm sure you'll get feedback on your post.

    HOWEVER, you should go see a doctor. And in the future use protection every time. The risks of STD's and are way too high to take such a dangerous chance.

    I have to also add that you should get to a doctor right away. Have this checked out, get it treated and put it behind you. And learn a lesson. Wrap it! I'd also think about wearing clean underwear. That might help. :rolleyes:

    Well the fact is that a huge percentage of folks out there gay, straight, women men, you name it are positive for HSV type I & II that is oral and genital. You can get this by simple oral sex, frottage, or any skin to skin or mucous membrane contact with an individual who may be asymptomatic and shedding the virus or in the prodromal (pre-outbreak) stage of the disease. Some folks who carry the disease never have an outbreak but shed the virus during asymptomatic outbreaks. HSV is nasty....but it ain't the end of the world. But a raincoat is a good idea unless your ready for the consequences. I hate them too, but they are a necessary evil.

    Get seen at your local STD clinic....they can give you a full STD screen. It sucks but it's your best bet!

    CDC, which for the most part is accurate, but sometimes slow with their data claims 1 out of 5 adolescents and adults, which is 20%, ave had genital HSV infection. Its actually closer to 1 out of 4 women and 1 out of 5 men.....making transmission from female to male more likely.....it has to do with the amount of mucosa potentially present for exposure. It doesnt differentiate between HSV-1 (more commonly oral) and HSV-2 (more commonly genital) because it really doesnt matter.

    Very few people will seroconvert and never have an outbreak.....asymptomatic carriers are not extremely common with HSV. Although it is possible to have 1 outbreak and then suppress it and have very very few outbreaks

    herpes also has a relatively decent survival time outside the body on cups, utensils, etc.....

    I agree with the above posters that you should have your doctor check you out. That should be your number one course of action at this time. Go do it!

    That having been said, I will add that the symptoms you described sound like symptoms I have had on occasion following periods of heavy masturbation sessions with an agent that my skin is apparently sensitive to. I'll get a reddish area that is raw feeling just on the underside of the corona (rim) of the head on the right side where my hand causes the most friction on my glans. It's not outright painful, but it does feel tender when masturbating. At first I thought it might be syphilis, but showed it to a skin specialist who was treating me for skin cancer and he said it COULD be eczema and prescribed Fluticasone Propionate cream which I spread over the inflamed area and within a couple of days it disappeared. However, using the same ingredient for masturbation (vaseline, believe it or not) caused a recurrence of the problem.

    If I don't masturbate too frequently I don't have the problem. But if the inflammation comes back I definitely abstain from any sexual action until it goes away again. I have also found that switching to olive oil as a jerkoff lube has allowed me to wank more frequently than with any other lube I've tried. I quit using lotion of any kind years ago because my penis always felt raw afterwards (though I didn't exhibit the rash-like symptoms then), and switched instead to lubes meant for fucking ~ like Elbow Grease, Wet, etc. Didn't like how Wet dries out and gets sticky so I went with petroleum-based lubes and that's how I got onto Vaseline.

    It is possible that extra-sensitive skin suffers from sloughing during masturbation (removing of skin cells via friction) and that is what causes my problem. As I said, olive oil has been like a miracle lube to me. I hope that your problem is friction and sensitivity to lube, but only your doctor can determine if it's viral or bacterial, or frictional. If it turns out not to be Herpes then you may wish to consult a skin specialist.

    As for your underwear... if you're gonna wear it for a couple of days at least sell it online to the underwear fetishists and buy yourself some new pairs to wear. LOL. Some guys sell their used undies for upwards of $20 bucks, which can buy a whole lot more. You may never have to wash your skivvies again!

    yeah ive been watching closely but nothing has been going on. Im going to make it to the clinic fairly soon though and see what they think. The thing is though is im going to feel stupid because i discovered all this stuff with a flashlight :S. The same little tiny tiny flesh colored dots have been there for 5 weeks though so im wondering if they could be abrasions in the skin or genital warts.
