See a doctor!: Guess what: Repeating the same question with different words won't get different answers. As discussed previously, chlamydia isn't known to trigger herpes outbeaks. And "burning sensation on my penis" is NOT a herpes symptom if there are no blisters or sores. Yeast infection is a possibilty. As advised previously, stop screwing around and see a doctor about it.
