User :   I was recently with a girl that i trust implicitly. we use a condom, always, but as we were rolling around druing foreplay, i slid into her by accident. i immediately pulled out and got a condom on. today, about 5 days later, i noticed a small bump on my shaft. it doesnt hurt, is extremely tiny, doesnt itch or just there. i'm terrified this might be herpes, but it doesnt look anythign like any pictures i've seen online...please help me!
Doctor :   Hi I am Dr AAAAAAA
User :   hey
Doctor :   How can I help you?
Doctor :   let me read the query give me a couple of minutes
Doctor :   Herpes would not appear so fast
User :   5 days is too fast? thats amazing news
User :   what do you think it could be?
Doctor :   The incubation period is a week
User :   i read somewhere that it could be 4-7 days, so i wasnt sure
Doctor :   I do not derive anything serious about it
Doctor :   as it is neither painful or itchy
Doctor :   I would suggest to wait and watch it, if you develop fever, more tiny pustules
User :   i've had a cold the past week or so, but its very mild
Doctor :   Ok
User :   i should be just fine though?
Doctor :   I hope so
Doctor :   You should wait for 72 hours
