Hello.... about 12 weeks ago I had sexual contact with a girl (genital contact but not penetrative sex).

About a week later I began to experience some symptoms which are causing me a great deal of anxiety

I have had a persistent burning sensation around the tip / head of my penis. I have also had experienced a redishness around the tip of penis, and a burning sensation when urinating.

Less frequently, I have experienced a slight burning sensation and itchiness around my anus (usually after going to the toilet), and some pain in my pelvis / abdomen just above my penis and pain in testicles (which is a kind of tightness). I have also had some occasional wrinkles / cracks in the head of my penis, as though the skin is softer or something.

I've seen my doctor and had std tests which came back all clear (about 4 weeks ago), and have been treated for chlamydia and trich.

This is causing great anxiety... could it be something possibly like herpes (I've had no blisters though)?

  • yeast infection, Candidiasis - could cause small blisters as well, usually remains in the hot wet spots. Unlike herpes which can appear on the shaft as well.use a jock itch cream, and look up candidiasis as well - you will probably find more "like" symtoms

  • There may not be blisters in the first outbreak, and herpes is contracted through skin to skin contact, so you may want to have that checked again.
