Hi I have herpes and I'm getting open soars and I can go to the bathroom because it burns and itches what should I do??
I got a handjob from a girl with herpes. My anus itches and was wondering if I could have got herpes from a handjob or could it be from something else?
Slow Down: Anus itching is not in any way a symptom of herpes. First, congratulation on having a sexual encounter. Second, what is the real problem here? Getting a hand job does not in any way put your anus at risk for anything. Why would you even spend a second trying to connect the two? ...Read more
Would internal meatus herpes be easily visible? Have small red pimple inside meatus that Itches all day, no pain. Received unprotected oral. Have UTI
May be herpes:
Herpes can initially cause itching. That's often followed by a blister that ulcerates. May cause pain, especially on
urinating. The only way to tell if HSV is to do a swab of some fluid from the sore. Since you were able to see the "pimple" I'm not sure why you are asking if it easily visible. The doctor can use a magnifying glass to view it if needed. Best wishes. Always use a condom. ...Read more
If a specific location where a red bump on my penis is never itches, burns, crusts over, etc, can it still be herpes? Usually itches all over.
Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave like this: unlikely to cause red bump that doesn't become blister or sore and doesn't cause itching "all over". Neither does any other STD. Maybe a localized allergy or other dermatitis. See a doctor. If the "red bump" is present only now and then, talk to your doctor about arranging an immediate visit (without an advance appointment) next time it appears. ...Read more
Can I have sex with my husband after having a herpes outbreak and it still itches sometimes. There are no blisters. The outbreak has been gone.
What does it mean when your upper inner thigh itches? Fungus, germs, herpes, what could it be? There is also a raised group of red bumps.
I have a rash under my bottom lip. Don't have any other symptoms of herpes like burning urine or sores "down there" it doesn't hurt just itches?
Rash: It would be rash of me to try and suggest a diagnosis without seeing this eruption. You need to be examined by a doctor and have suggestions made for cause and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
I contracted herpes hsv 1 from a sexworker 17 years back. After the sex I develop small bumps one head of the penis which itches. For last two years?
Details matter: Hsv 1 on face??? or genital? How do you know the source? Was it cultured? Treated? Now you have something else not related to hsv. A clue is "after the sex"........what kind of sex? Condom? Lubricant or other material used by either participant? Since it appears only after sex it is not related to foreskin. Consider an irritation or allergy related to something used during sex or used by another p ...Read more
I have fungal infection on my groun, and my scrotum itches, I've also had white bums on scrotum that itch, my scrotum tingles, could this be herpes?
Not herpes.: What you are describing doesn't sound like herpes. Herpes typically presents as a cluster of blisters that develop at the same time. The skin is typically itchy or painful before the blisters develop, then the blisters come. The fungal infection in your groin and scrotum may require a stronger antifungal. The Betamethasone combination you are using may spread the fungus and make it worse. ...Read more
Do I have genital herpes?! I have no bumps but my vulva is bright red and itches like crazy. This is the second time since I've had sex.
Probably not herpes: Vaginal itching and vulva redness is more likely due to a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomonasis. Herpes can cause itching but more likely to be painful also. The lesions of herpes are more like blisters or open sores than bumps. The best way to determine what is causing the problem is to have it evaluated by a doctor who can then provide proper treatment. ...Read more

Genital Herpes Hurts:
If you are talking about sore on your penis, I doubt that you have herpes of the genitals.

It may be vaginitis: It's probably not yeast if you have treated your self already for this. It may be a vaginitis. The best way to find out is with a vaginal exam. Other organisms like Chlamidia, over growth of natural bacteria, vaginal dryness, even the different days during the menstrual cycle make our hormones change the Ph, or acidity, of the vagina. Also vaginal douches may cause changes in the flora of the vagi ...Read more
