After a week there was I began getting annoying whitish discharges under my foreskin. After a while I began to apply cortizone and antifungal creams which cleared everything up under the foreskin so I stopped applying them a few days later my scrotum began to burn up and start cracking up become just raw skin so I started to apply the cortizone cream an antifungal powders which stopped the symptoms making everything dry up and flake off..a few days later I went motorcycling while doing so there was a lot of friction going in my groin so next day I wake up with a wake up with a bunch of red bumps under my foreskin so I again reapply the powder 2times a day after 36hrs they go away...the rash spread to my tighs and my pubic region been trying to get ride of it ever since with cortizone and anti fungal what do I have?

Hi there.

Firstly go across to any laboratory & get a herpes IgG & IgM done before speculating whether herpes can or cannot cause such symptoms.

To answer all your questions in a nut-shell, yes herpes can present with all these symptoms. The discharge need not necessarily be herpes & may be a secondary infection both admixed bacterial & viral infection. Since it was an unprotected exposure, any infection may have come on board piggy-backing on the other. Fungal infections are top of the list eg candidiasis.
However, you may want to do a battery of tests including an Elisa for HIV for completion sake.

Once the lab tests get in, you will have a clearer picture. Do go across to a dermatologist nearest you. Practice safe sex in the future please. Good Luck!
