Herpes Pictures

Are the pictures posted on the internet accurate depictions of what herpes looks like? Because although I seem to have a few of the does not look that similar. one bump here another one there....about 4 bumps in all...none are clustered...they are scattered about my penis shaft.... ANY IDEAS?

Re: Herpes Pictures

Herpes pictures can be downright alarming--- and misleading. It OFTEN doesn't look like the pics, hence the enormous number of people who have it and don't know. I had herpes for well over a year before I figured out that the poison ivy-looking rash on my right buttcheek was herpes. No blisters, just some red bumps that itched. Now I usually just get a little itchy in that spot, maybe a little bump, but I know it's an OB. It's different for everyone. You may very well not have it--- but in short, it can look like anything or it can look like nothing.
What leads you to believe you may have herpes--- other than the few scattered bumps?

Re: Herpes Pictures

Hi, mra! Hope everything is going well for you!

I also have never had an ob like those pictured. Sometimes I just have the tiniest little dot of a sore.
