Just under penis head/on shaft, looks like a small water blister the skin tears a bit not bleeding, neg herpes test, treated for balanitis w/no change?

Just under penis head/on shaft, looks like a small water blister the skin tears a bit not bleeding, neg herpes test, treated for balanitis w/no change?

Doubt herpes or STD: It's impossible to guess about the cause of this, but I agree this doesn't sound like herpes or any other STD. The large majority of genital skin problems aren't STDs. The doctor or clinic treating your balanitis is by far in the best position to figure this out and give reliable advice. Good luck with it. ...Read more

Ok so I have 1 dime sized watery non painful blister on my penis then I have clusters of clear small pimples that are on the my shaft is that herpes?

Possibly: Herpes usually hurt/itch and look like a small bubble. Other possible infections include: genital warts, molluscum contagiosum, hiv (viral), balanitis (yeast), tinea cruxis (fungal), syphilis (bacterial). The bumps could be an allergic reaction or a normal finding, pearly penile papules. Get examined and be tested for STDs asap. Urine, blood, saliva, skin scraping samples are used, not penile swabs. ...Read more

Just had negative results for herpes. I have had blisters on my penis that wash off in the shower and come back as scabs. I have swollen lymphs groin.

Sounds herpetic: It does sound herpetic. Make sure your doctor did an actual culture and not a sretum test because this is an antibody test and can lag. The testing is for hsv 1 and 2. The lymph node swelling goes with this as wel but is less specific. A herpetic outbreak should be painful. ...Read more

Chances of one having herpes without any blisters or sores but balanitis on foreskin and penis head?

Chances of one having herpes without any blisters or sores but balanitis on foreskin and penis head?

I wouldn't think: The chances are high...those ulcerated lesions are very commonly present in herpes. Balanitis is swelling and inflammation of the foreskin. It's main cause is suboptimal hygiene in the uncircumcised. Symptoms will usually resolve when you rinse (unscented) soap completely off the penis. Low dose OTC topical steroid or anti fungal cream may help. Rarely are other antibiotics needed. USE CONDOMS! ...Read more

Is it possible that a couple tiny red dots (not blisters) on underside of penis that only lasted 3 days were recurrent genital herpes?

Is it possible that a couple tiny red dots (not blisters) on underside of penis that only lasted 3 days were recurrent genital herpes?

Probably not: Almost certainly this isn't herpes, which doesn't cause "red dots" that don't become blisters or open sore. And no herpes outbreak can heal entirely in only 3 days; 7-10 days is the minimum. If you have been diagnosed with genital herpes, follow your doctor's advoce about management. If worried about herpes but not diagnosed, the "red dots" don't suggest you have it. ...Read more

If never had blister or sore on penis or mouth, is it good idea to get tested for herpes? Last encounter year and half ago

Your Call: There really is no clinical reason to check but if you are concerned that you may have any STD (maybe because of an exposure) then it never hurts to be checked either. It really depends on how worried you are. If it makes you feel better, get checked. Most local health departments offer anonymous STD panels at little or no fee or your doctor can run these tests for you if you prefer. ...Read more

Recurrent shingles with Post-Herpetic Neuralgia between outbreaks? There is a lot more to it but not enough space here.....?

Recurrent shingles with Post-Herpetic Neuralgia between outbreaks? There is a lot more to it but not enough space here.....?

Maybe HSV, not VZV: Shingles rarely recurs so frequently but HSV does, and recurrent herpes simplex can look identical to zoster. 1) Retest next outbreak to confirm varicella zoster virus (VZV), and PCR test for HSV. 2) Have an HSV IgG antibody test, expecting maybe positive for HSV1. 3) Continue valacylovir to prevent recurrences, whatever the cause. As others have advised, it is nontoxic and harmless, so why not? ...Read more
