I had protected sex with woman with hsv2 5 week ago. I have lower back pain and itch on butt. Been feeling it 4 a few weeks. Is this a sign of herpes?

I had protected sex with woman with hsv2 5 week ago. I have lower back pain and itch on butt. Been feeling it 4 a few weeks. Is this a sign of herpes?

Low risk, no worries: Herpes doesn't cause low back pain or "itch on butt". The chance of HSV2 from one episode of unprotected vaginal sex with infected partner is around 1 in a thousand. With condom protection, it's still lower. Don't worry about this. Also look at it this way: If you've had sex with say 20 different women, you can assume 3-10 of them had HSV2. The one partner you knew about isn't any more risky.

How long does tingling happen before first outbreak of herpes. I get itching neck pain lower back pain now tingling for over 4 days now?

How long does tingling happen before first outbreak of herpes. I get itching neck pain lower back pain now tingling for over 4 days now?

This isn't herpes: For initial herpes, there usually is no tingling before sores appear. Tingling is mainly a symptom of recurrent herpes; in that case, it lasts only a day or two before the outbreak itself shows up. Your symptoms don't sound at all like herpes, which doesn't cause tingling without sores and rarely if ever causes low back pain. See doctor if symptoms continue, but no worries about herpes. Good luck!

Herpes: This does not sound like herpes, and a blood test for HSV 1 and 2 IgM and IgG can help clarify that. Herpes can occur in the skin of the lower back, usually as a cluster of inflamed vesicles which scab over then heal.
