Symptoms started in March after a sexual encounter (condom broke and I was unprotected for a couple minutes before I noticed). Rash developed on scrotum/inner thighs, started having urological problems, and also about 150 white spots appeared in the area.
Spots are small, white/flesh/yellow colored, do not hurt to the touch, do not "pop", do not leak fluid and are not ulcers or lesions as far as I can tell. However the spots showed up a couple of days after the rash and urological issues did, which concerns me. None of the spots have disappeared since then, and if anything more spots have continued to show up on the underside of my penis. Before, they were just at the very base of penis (and over most of scrotum), but newer spots are working their way up the shaft.
I attached pictures of the spots (one pic shows them on underside of penis and the other shows them on scrotum).
Please be aware: out of concern it was herpes, I got the HSV antibody blood test performed on my own (igG specific aB for BOTH types), and it came back negative for Type 1 and negative for Type 2. Test was administered about 3 weeks ago, or approx 7 months after this all started, but these symptoms still concern me. What are the odds the test would come back negative 7 months post "possible exposure" but I actually have the virus?
Thank you. Can a doctor scrape skin from one of the spots to do a culture and/or cut one off and do a biopsy to help determine the cause?
Thank you for your time and help. Take care.
