Post does anyone know?

I was just wondering if there is anything that can resemble the symptoms of herpes? Maybe other things that aren't as serious? The reason I'm asking is because the symptoms for herpes are so broad and general that one can experience these things caused by something else.
Also a question I've been asking forever but can't seem to get a clear answer is.... I know it's possible to get herpes even if u wear a condom because it doesn't cover everything. I understand this, but what I want to know is as long as it doesnt rip wouldn't the covered area be safe? Ok now assuming there was skin to skin contact wouldnt that area be infected? or is it possible to get infected in one area and have an OB in another area that didnt make contact? Because if I have herpes Im having an OB on the glans (area covered by a condom) and there is no physical signs of it anywhere else on my genitals.

Seeing as how you wear a condom, your chances of contracting something are low, but the risk is still there. You may want to look up STD's online and see if you can find some pictures to look at, or at least descriptions of what to look for. You may have contracted something, not necessarily herpes but an STD of some kind. If so, you not only want to know for yourself, but to protect anyone you come in contact with in the future.
