I feel an itching sensation in my pennis area, is it genital herpes ?

feel an itching sensation in my pennis area,is it genital herpes I am an unmarried male. I had an sexual intercourse with a lady almost 3 years back. I was not aware of this lady's past sexual history. I had used condom during the intercourse, but unfortunately due to wrong usage while trying to enter into her vagaina the condom got broken. Immediately i had stopped the intercourse and used another new condom for the intercourse. B'coz of breaking of the condom, may be for a fraction of a second/ or for a minute my pennis might have contacted her vigina. After this instance i started to feel an itching sensation, at times, in my pennis area, and the urine also is in light yelloish tint sometimes. I had consultated a urologist in my area and he had given me some medicines. During the course of the medicine itching was not there and a sort of dryness was felt in the pennis area. What kind of infection is this? Is it genital herpes? Is it cureable. Please help me with your valuable advise.

Consult to the urologist again and request him/her for laboratory tests regarding Sexually Transmitted Infections. If you find any type of infection in reports then get proper treatment. Always avoid sexual intercourse out of wedlock.

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 edwin from Australia. I have a concern regarding something. I have being recently diagnosed with herpes simplex (genital) the doctor prescribed valacyclovir 500 mg BD i am also taking medication to boost the immune system. all the blisters that i had around my anus are not as bad as they were two weeks ago when they appeared the first time . the doctor told me to take that antiviral for 10 days, i have already finished it but although the blisters seem to be healing well, I am still feeling the tingling and itchyness around the anal and perineum are. I still also feel it in my penis, scrotum and sometimes in the face, i put zovirax when i feel it around the lips. anyway, should i go back to the doctor for more valacyclovir ? i still have 17 tablets left. do you think i should try another antiviral ? is ti normal to still feel that tingling sensation and itchtyness after 10 days of being on the medication? thank you very much for your help doctor, i really appreciate it

Hi I have been diagnosed with genital herpes (from oral sex) and am currently taking an antivirul drug 3x a day for 7 days. I wanted to know if I could use Vagisil to reduce the itching and burning sensation caused by the sores or am I slowing down the healing process?

My 21 year old boyfriend was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea about 2 days ago and still complains of stinging and itching after urination and I'm having an unusual amount of white discharge lately, no smell. What could be wrong? Could it be something other than chlamydia? Could it be warts or herpes?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

My husband has genital herpes and was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He received 1 treatment of chemotherapy and has run a fever everyday for about 2 weeks. About five days after his treatment he noticed discomfort of the scrotum. It was red on both sides and had areas of what appeared to be pus filled lesions. Could this be a side effect of the chemo or is this an outbreak. He is taking valtrex and applying a cream. It seems to be improving slowly. Should he tell his oncologist about the herpes. Will it effect his treatments and does chemotherapy increase the severity of outbreaks.
