Genital Herpes? - Outbreak?

I don't know if I have a herpes out break. Today I noticed a small pimple, just one on my penis. I don't know if it's because of skin irritation of some sort. I've always had intercourse with a condom, but did have oral w/o condom.

I believe herpes are in clusters, and I'm a bit unsure and confused.

Granted, I am HSV1 positive.

I've heard it takes 3 months but I don't want to give wrong information. Just because you use a condom doesn't guarantee 100% protection and if you've ever had unprotected sex and never tested for the HSV virus via a blood test, then you may already have have the antibiotics already for HSV virus.

Get a blood test to be for sure and don't let the doctor just look at your penis as a diagnosis.

1 in 4 woman have the HSV virus and 1 in 5 men have it as well...

Get a swab. It's different for everyone. I gave it to someone and they had symptoms within the month of us being together and tested positive. At first yeah, the initial doctor thought it might be a pimple that got infected. Better to get tested via swab or blood test than worry about it. I think we all get very different symptoms. None of my outbreaks are the same as the last one even.
