Raised sores on penis that eventually open slightly. Painful only with contact. Tested NEGATIVE for HSV 1&2. Antiviral meds help. Wat can it be??

Raised sores on penis that eventually open slightly. Painful only with contact. Tested NEGATIVE for HSV 1&2. Antiviral meds help. Wat can it be??

Genital rash: Well certainly you need a proper diagnosis here. If you can show a picture, that would be most helpful. Syphilis comes to mind first -because it's characterized by a relatively painless ulcer that is raised. I wonder if you've had any risks for exposure? There are other diseases possible such as Bechet's -although it would seem strange that you're just getting symptoms from that now. See ID doctor ...Read more

Already had HSV1 MOUTH. Have had TWO cold sores on penis since January. Herpeselect test negative for HSV2 at 2.5 months, and again after 5 months. Igg .22 and .54. Can HSV1 migrate to groin?

Already had HSV1 MOUTH.  Have had TWO cold sores on penis since January.  Herpeselect test negative for HSV2  at 2.5 months, and again after 5 months.  Igg .22 and .54.  Can HSV1 migrate to groin?

Herpes "migration"?: Herpes doesn't spontaneously migrate. However HSV 1 can cause genital herpes just as easily as HSV 2. Just requires exposure. Touching ur cold sore and then touching your groin could cause this. As could kissing your partner, giving him/her oral herpes, and then him/her performing oral sex on you. Or, performing oral sex on your partner ... & so on. C ur doc for proper diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

I had unprotected oral sex with a prostitute she performed on me I had no cuts or sores on penis also circumcised also didn't see any blood in her mouth or penis I had a fourth generation test at 4 weeks and 6 weeks negative also a negative dna pcr test a

Unprotected oral sex: I am assuming you are concerned about your HIV risk. Based on the information you provided I think your risk is low with the three negative tests. HOWEVER - your behavior is risky. Saliva can contain the HIV virus and while you may not have any cuts or sores - your partner could easily scratch or bite you. Be careful!! ...Read more

Needs testing: There are several things that can do this but it sounds like it may be a herpes infection. No one could confirm that without seeing it though. Schedule a visit with your doctor for evaluation or consider a virtual healthtap visit. Avoid intercourse until the testing can be done. ...Read more
