Me and my boyfriend have had unprotected intercourse while i had herpes on my chin. No oral sex or kissing was involved. Can he still get it?
Herpes and Sex: This is a vital question and I am glad you asked it. About 75% of americans have been exposed to the "oral" herpes virus...Now known as herpes type one. You can transmit this virus at unpredictable times whether you have an outbreak or not. You can only transmit it from the skin you have been infected at. It is wise to get the blood tests and your partner to know his status as well. Get tested! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a pimple like bump with a white head. It seemed to look different with in minutes after taking a shower. Could this be herpes or just a pimple?
Pimple: Where is the bump? Is it full of fluid or is it firm? Does it recur in the same place? Herpes occurs in clusters at point of contact (oral or genital) or along nerves (dermatomal). When you take a shower, you are changing your body temperature temporarily which alters the blood supply & color of the skin. Your bump is most likely an acne comedone (whitehead). Your pcp can help diagnose it better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have tiny bumps under the head of my dick and on the back of my penis shaft is this herpes I had in protected sex 2 months ago?
Not herpes: This isn't herpes. Herpes causes red bumps, blisters, pimples, or open sores over 1-2 weeks. Anything that looks the same after 1-2 days is never herpes. This might not be abnormal. I'm wondering about pearly penile papules or Fordyce spots. Google both and see how the photos compare with what you have. If any doubt or you're still concerned, see a doctor. ...Read more

Genital herpes: TYpically, genital herpes is painful and usually one will have several small "bumps" or clear fluid filled vesicles. It's not impossible that what you have is herpes, but unlikely. To know for sure you would need to have a swab of the lesion sent for lab analysis. However, I think it's rather unlikely. ...Read more
