Anything is possible. Before things go worse, get the symptom checked and analysed.

Hi! So I am always at war with my mind, battling random anxieties. I get checked for STDs regularly. I am a gay male and have only had a few sexual experiences in my life, at age 27. I ve never been in a long-term relationship and I have only had a string of one night stands, where I ve never seen any sores present. The thing that scares me the most is Herpes, especially having it without knowing and accidentally spreading it to people. The weird thing is, I have never seen any bumps, lesions, cuts or sores. Sometimes I get an itchy anus and this is what triggers my fear. Currently, I have had itching going on for 5 weeks. I am assuming it is because of sweat and hygiene, which I have since corrected and I just started to use Lotrim which seems to be working. My question is-- would itching for 5 weeks without any sores present be an instance of possible herpes? I am driving myself crazy, debating whether or not I should go through the trouble of getting a blood test when really there is nothing on my skin. I read that you can have no symptoms at all and still carry the virus, able to give it to others. Do you think I have any valid reason to believe I have herpes or am I just totally insane? Is it worth it to get tested when the symptoms are not present?

i was at a concert and i was dancing with this girl. We kissed very briefly a few times, no longer than a couple seconds each time. I put her on my shoulders at one point and she put her fingers in my mouth for some weird reason. At one point she stuck her hand in my pants and touched my penis very briefly (i have no idea why, i just wanted to dance). Im a very paranoid person, and just wanted to ask, can any of this lead to me contracting genital herpes? she had no visible blisters or lesions on her face. Thanks for your help, i know i m probably thinking irrationally but i just need an answer before i can move on. Im now starting to over analyze every part of my private parts 1,000 times a day and thinking every little mark or every time i get an itch or a very minimal pain is a symptom.

I am trying to figure out if this is HSV-1 or Allergies OR fungal infection? First, swollen tastebuds and MILD thrush. 1 month later, pimples at corner of mouth and dry lips. They never blistered and stayed for 2 weeks. Even after picking and scabbing. They never scabbed over yellow like they say herpes does and never blistered up. ??? Angular cheilitis ? Slight cracking on corner of mouth after picking pimples TINY flesh colored pimples at back of mouth, not beyond the tonsils but above and before. Then a week later I started experiencing blurry, itchy, water eyes, felt like an object in my eye... swollen in the corner by tear duct. White looking when I lift up my eyelid in corner. Ocular herpes????? I can only find information on when it attack the eyelids , cornea , etc. I don t see any lesions. What are the options of what it could be?

Hi, I am going to schedual a doctors appointment, but I am just freaking out because I think I could possibly have herpes.. I have only had 4 sex partners.. I m 25, female.. I assumed it was a yeast infection or uti.. but now i m not sure.. It started the day after I shaved down their with a new razor.. so i assumed it was a razor burn/ possible cut.. the next couple days it was very itchy.. but that is common after i shave while hair is growing back.. it also would burn when I d wipe.. it was right by the opening of the vagina.. both sides.. after about 4 days it seems like it was getting better.. each day a little better until it really didn t hurt much at all aout 6 or 7 days later, excep on one side.. finally i got a mirror and looked and i saw a cut.. which i dunno if it was from shaving or what.. by this time i decided it was probably a yeast infection since i was having discharge.. but it was a runny white discharge. I m not exactly sure but after looking online on yeast infecting sites one person said it may be herpes so i researched it.. it was the furthest thing from my mind.. but it turns out.. I m scared it could be.. is their a chance it isn t herpes and its just from shaving or yeast infection.. the other thing.. that is confusing is my urine; unless i drink tons of fluids, is stong in ordor and a little foggy.. which led to me think uti..

Some of these pimples are clustered together and it looks very similar to genital herpes. I was swimming in the pool and ocean almost all day for about four days. I also had unprotected sex as well as oral with a girl that I know. She s only had sex a with one guy who was her boyfriend. Im very concerned as to what this is and I hope someone can help me out.
