Virus?: If this happened a single time & resolved on it's own, it's possibly a virus or due to toxic exposure (carbon monoxide, for instance).

Penis head is burning/tingling for past 72 hours. If herpes how long before sore appears? 13 days since unprotected blowjob.

Penis head is burning/tingling for past 72 hours. If herpes how long before sore appears? 13 days since unprotected blowjob.

Not herpes: If this were herpes, blisters and then open sores would appear within 3-5 days, and would always occur before burning or tingling, not afterward. At 13 days, you can be sure herpes isn't the cause. I doubt this is any STD at all. See a doctor if symptoms continue and/or you remain concerned. Good luck! ...Read more
