After 20+ hours of having sex my testicles started

Customer Question

Hello. After 20+ hours of having sex my testicles started itching... Didn't pay much attention next day I noticed small rash on my penis. There was a foul smell too .the rash never hurt or itched on my penis.I was super concerned so I got tested for herpes right after 72 hours from sex. Thanks god it came back negative. I have few questions. Decently I discover couple bumps on the head of the penis no pain or itching.. My old bumps are white like scars now. Question is how accurate can the blood test be. I have pictures If needed.
Nothing visible on testicles. Question number two is...can this be yeast infection.. BTW I just got done taking antibiotics and on that day I took the double dosage of over the ounter testosterone medication just to make sure I have good long sex. spots on the head of the penis are New today

Thanks for your question.

The antibody blood test fr herpes is not accurate at 72 hours after exposure.

It may take around 3 weeks for the antibodies to develop after exposure and test is more accurate after 3 weeks.But test being positive at 3 weeks does not mean that you have herpes.It just means that you have been exposed to herpes at some time in your life.Test being negative at 3 weeks is more important.A negative test means that you do not have herpes.

Off course it can be a fungal infection.
