I have what look like sores,ingrown hairs on my pelvic area. They re about two inches above my penis. They do not hurt or itch and they have been scaling a bit. They do not seem to get any better or worse and I ve had them over two weeks. They appeared the night after sexual contact. Is this Genital Herpes? I can t find any pictures that looks like what I have. I have made a Doctor s Appointment, but I want to be prepared for what the results will be.

Good Morning Doctor I am 65 years old man And I have genitala herpes What I know is that this infection is not curable. I hadn t very severe outbreaks. The last very small outbreak was 3 years ago. I am Single person on pension now still sexually active. Since I got this virus more than 20 years I had sexual intercourse being fully aware of the consequences for the other person. Now I am alone and met someone to spend rest of my life together. The other person is a younger lady who wants have child with me. I read about this virus all information that is available in internet. Some information is very helpful and pretty clear for me. The worst distressing massage is that this virus can be transmitted without outbreak, without genital blisters. I would be very grateful for your opinion in this regard. Yours Faithfully Wes Glebocki
