hi lesions on the penis since puberty cannot be herpes or genital warts.i think they are only pearly penile papulesa which is normal phenomenon in 70 percent of individuals .no treatment is required except for cosmetic purpose.u can try tacrolimus ointment to treat them

hi Ive never been tested for stds and I think I should but I m very scared. I have psoriasis on my body and the lesions on my shaft look similar to that. They go away with the psoriasis lotion. Im just wondering if its herpes or something other than psoriasis. Any feedback is appreciated. thanks

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.

Hello, my name is Zack.I am a 29 yr old gay male in san Antonio tx. I have been exposed to what I believe is herpes, but there are just some symptoms involving my fiancee that is putting a lot of things into question. I was having unprotected sex before we met. Not on a daily basis and not every partner was unprotected, though it s no relief or excuse. I myself had not noticed any symptoms except for diarrhea and a smelly discharge from my anus, which I honestly chalked up to be poor diet complications for the most part. My fiancee and I had discussed our sexual past and i wasn t completely honest with him, however he was terrified of contracting hiv and I had just had a hospital visit where they regularly test all patients with bloodwork for hiv. So with that in mind, and in my ignorance, I thought I was in the clear for any other stds. I didn t understand why they d test for hiv but nothing else. However my visit was not for anything related to an std. I had tonsilittis. When i came clean about having unprotected sex, we immediately went and got tested for hiv, and came back negative on both behalves. We were relieved and continued with our relationship even stronger and regularly had unprotected sex. A few months later we started having trust issues and he began questioning whether I have been faithful to him. I have not been sexually or even slightly physical with another person outside of a hug since we ve been together, and we ve been back and forth about this for awhile. In the midst of our arguments about whether I ve been faithful, he started breaking out in sores and lesions ranging in size and severity on his penis, and eventually on his hands and face, and one on his anus. He regularly has stomach problems, and says that his sores (and there s a lot at times) are extremely painful. These sudden symptoms have strengthened his conviction against me, and leaving me next to defenseless to justify anything. I m suffering from anxiety and depression, mostly because of this argument, and most people have told me to leave him. But I m determined to prove my innocence, and this would be a great start. He tells me that I m a carrier and that s why I don t show typical symptoms, and he s convinced that there s no way I could have contracted something before we got together, and it took (roughly) 6 months before he had started showing noticeable symptoms. I have neglected going to get tested for the sheer fact that I beleove I m positive for herpes, however I fear a free testing clinic would not be able to determine how long I ve had the virus, or provide us with enough information to even give me a chance to prove that I ve had this before him. I know I shouldnt have lied about my sexual past to him, and I am responsible for this debate entirely. Please help.

My son had a bump on the ball of his foot that looked like a callous and it was hard to touch. I thought it was a plantar wart so I used wart remover on it. Last week it looked like there was something in it so I discontinued the wart treatment and today he was squeezing it with tweezers and it popped and brown pus and blood came out of it. I put a band aid and antibiotic ointment on it after I washed it out with peroxide. Anyone have any idea what this is?
