What's going on here?

Day 1 blister type sore where base of penis connects to scrotum. Tiny pain. Some itching.

Day3 3 days of body ache and fever. No flu symptoms.

Day 6. Dermatologist pa says looks like herpes. Takes swab of sore, now small bumps have grown on scrotom as well. Puts me on 7 days of the valtrex drug.

Blood/ urine test 8 point for all stds.

Day 10 sore is disappearing. All stds come back negative. Currently right side of body hurts when my skin is touched by anything like clothes.

Any suggestions? Waiting on swab.

Iam sorry you have been experiencing what sounds very much like an 'outbreak'. My skin feels unbelievably painful that nothing I wear doesnt hurt. I don't get some symptoms as severely each time. It can fluctuate or there isn't a part of.my body that doesn't ache,etc. Ache is a mild word.everyone's body/immune system is dif though so do try
to stay positive as you find a Dr tht will find out answers you need. And a treatment plan if required. I understand...I never thought I would ever find ppl tht could provide info,support,kindness. NO judgement. I read others words and experiences and I don't feel so alone. Take care of yourself)

Re: What's going on here?

The herpes virus can lie dormant in a person's nervous system. Some are carriers of the virus and have no outbreaks or ones so minimal it wasn't detected. You get be exposrd also through oral sex and just kissing someone. It is no wonder there are so many who have it! The shame and stigma is unreal. It isn't a character flaw or something that defines who a person is. It is terrible how ppl can be so verbally judgment. Makes a person feel pretty small when they do have it and jokes are made. How can herpes be in any way,shape or form something to laugh abouts? I get how ppl joke sometimes about things they don't understand or fear...but still,it is truly insensitive and unkind. And that shld hold more value than ignorance or fear.

Re: What's going on here?

HSV 1 /2 IGG TEST BOTH LESS THAN .04 ON HERPES... Is the doctor wrong? Still waiting on swab test.

Question... is exposure 2 months with condom before blood test long enough to show up?

if it's right side of body only it might be Shingles (Herpes Zoster) you may want to check it out!
