I was just diagnosed herpes 2.

About 4 weeks ago, and 25 days or so after being with a new partner, i started to feel a very irritable and sensitive irritation at the tip of my penis.

I thought it may have been the clothes/boxers I was wearing and it somehow scraped the tip of my penis, but it didnt seem to go away.

Then burning started after urinating and just all the time pretty much general and a very painful pinching feeling it all feels like its right at the tip of the penis.

My doc said he thought it may be a UTI so he prescribed me antibiotics cipro. I took it for 2 days and then just got my std tests back and tested positive for Herpes2.

I'm worried that the pain in my penis and irritation on the tip maybe something totally unrelated as in urethra irritation from the recent sex ive been having.

I was just prescribed acyclovir but have been reading its mostly for sores? i dont have any sores.

I do have extremely sensitive skin right under the head of penis and have encountered small cuts or nicks in that area from sex or oral sex but think its just from the sex and not using lubrication sometimes. Can this be related?

Ive searched online and havent found any tip irriration as a symptom of herpes2. Also just pain without blisters or sores is this uncommon? it seems to be getter worse but have only taken the medication today. How long before I can know if the pain and irriation or related to the herpes? Also is there any chance I may have been mis diagnosed?
