I had unprotected sex on Tuesday and Wednesday night (I know this was a bad idea :( ) and on Thursday around mid-day, noticed that the head of my penis was covered in small pin sized red dots that look to be balanitis. However, I also noticed two yellowish raised blotches beneath the glans and underneath the foreskin at the top of the penis quite close together. They do not appear to be filled with any liquid but are raised slightly above the surface. They appear to have a fairly rough texture on their surface, are about 2mm in diametre at their maximum and the whole blotch is one colour, an off-white yellow-ish colour not dissimilar to the colour of a mouth ulcer. The blotches are not uncomfortable but are quite sensitive to touch (although much of my penis is similarly sensitive)

The area around them appears to be normal, but I was incredibly concerned that this might be herpes, although the outbreak seems fairly quick and the symptoms don't really match.

I'm trying to get to a doctor, but working nights and it being this close to christmas will make it difficult, so would appreciated some piece of mind on the issue, good or bad.

  • There is no peace of mind with these spots. If it's any consolation, herpes may take a few more days before it appears. You certainly have something and need to find out. Be sure you get a blood test for herpes2 IgM (for new antibodies) and then another one in a few months for herpes2 IgG, specific. It could be a harmless fungal infection, but it mimics herpes. If you still have them by the time you see a doctor, they need to be scraped and sent to the lab.
