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?

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..
