2 years ago i developed red, oozing sores on my penis and the Dr. took a swab but was 95% sure it was herpes just from the visual. When i call to the the results all i was told was "positive", herpes was not specifically mentioned. I have not had the sores anymore but my penis is still sensitive all of the time and i feel a burning sensation most days. Just wondering how common misdiagnosis is and if i should get a second test to confirm.
