Ok ive been to a couple clinics with tests coming back negative for everything ive been tested for so i figure ill come here.Symptoms started after getting back together with an old girlfriend after she had been with someone else.

We had unprotected sex twice two days apart. A day after the second time i noticed i had two ingrown hairs that didn't hurt on the shaft of my penis. One of these inflated with a clear fluid then inflated with a white fluid with no crusting over before healing. The other filled with a white fluid then healed both within the span of two weeks. For about a day i also had a slight pain in my urethra. Then a patch of three hairs grew inflamed but didn't fill with anything at all for another week, healed without incident. I had no burning, itching or any other symptoms on my genitals.

Then on the second week of infection i began to have an intense itching sensation on my lip, a few days latter it swelled up before pooping inward. After that i had several sores on the inside of my mouth form and disappear over the course of the last month and a half. Ive had the itching and tingling sensation on my lips without having any visible sores. I had rashes on my upper lip that would peel away after a day to two upon having symptoms. This is when i began to have intense flu symptoms a lot of the time that made life miserable.

Within the first month of infection i began to get red irritated eyes as well. This is when the migraines started on certain days. White parts of my eyes seems to have prominent red veins now but a never red and discolored like in a pink eye case.

To recap basically the genital infection cleared up within the first three weeks of infection where as my oral and ocular symptoms persist since getting symptoms.

Ive taken a chlamydia and gonorrhea swabs that came back negative. Ive also taken a herpes simplex 1 & 2 and a syphilis blood test recommended by another local clynic and all came back negative while i was having active symptoms. Im concerned about infecting those around me and im not sure what my next move is at this point...

  • Have the girlfriend get tested for herpes 1 and herpes 2. What does she say? Is she blowing off her symptoms? You need to take a look at the tests and see if it was herpes1/2 IgM or herpes IgG...since you just got it, it would need to be IgM antibodies and probably both. Also, for some reason, there are false negatives, but the false positives are rare. I would assume that at least I had oral herpes given your symptoms. You can also spread it to your eyes, so you must be very careful and see a doctor right away if it gets into your eyes. Sounds like she gave you a double/triple wammy...genitals/oral/eyes...you just don't know if it's one or two that you got..make her get tested.
