i have not had a sexual partner for a year until i had a lady visit with me for 4 nights and we had intercourse 5 times during the Thanksgiving Holidays. The last night we had sex i noticed it was getting sore and mentioned it to her. That was Friday night after Thanksgiving. She left the next day on Saturday. At that time my penis was slightly sore below the head but that was all.
On the following Monday i noticed one sore below the head of my penis.
It looks like an ulcer of sort and a little sore. I have only washed it and put some neosporin on it now for about 5 days but its not getting better.
The lady i was with is a public health nurse and said that she had never had an STD in her life and that she treats such patients at a free clinic in Florida. I am in Alabama. We met on the internet.
We had a lot of heavy duty sex and at first i assumed it was simple irritation from an excess of sex and it would heal after a few days. The sore is hard and red and a white looking center to it. There is no discharge from my penis and no discharge from the sore.
I did not notice any blisters as people talk about with herpes.
I am not circumcised and this shows only when the skin is pulled back and seems to follow the lines of a blood vessel but am not sure. At first i thought it could have ruptured a blood vessel or infected it...
I am afraid of course and have not ever had an STD in my life and am scared frankly. I do have a family doctor i can see and a urologist . Its now a Saturday afternoon and can only worry at this point.
Please tell me what you think this is.
I did have an outbreak of Shingles on my head in my hair a few months ago which im told is a type of virus or herpes but not like an STD.
I have not talked to my sexual partner about this.
I had a yearly physical a week prior to this with blood tests which came out fine. I am over 60 yet physically in good shape and work out and have a great diet.
Please advise.

  • Have you had this checked yet? By the way you described it, it sounds like a pimple or a sebaceous cysts which would be normal skin conditions. They may inflame and hurt like crazy. It could also be mulluscum as mulluscum bumps tend to be red with white or grey centers but to be honest, the only way to figure out is to have it cheked.

  • it's definately not molluscum, i've actually had molluscum before and it doesn't hurt at all, and they are small bumps that look like pimples that you can't feel until they are about to go away when they itch a bit.Honestly, it sounds like it's a herpes ulcer...i've seen pictures and have known people who have had herpes that described it to me. However, it very well may be just from going from not having sex for so long into having a lot of sex in a short period, which caused abbrasion on your skin and turned into a sore. And it could be very slow healing because it is under your foreskin so it's not getting any oxygen. But really the only way to know for sure is get tested.
