about a year

Dr Brims :

Do they pop like blisters?

Customer:

Dr Brims :

Customer:

mm no but I have and all came back normal,

Dr Brims :

May I ask what tests you had?

Customer:

yeah its okay mm the H I V and I don't know the other ones but the did it when I was like 8 months preg

Dr Brims :

How long ago did you have the tests?

Customer:

about a year ago

Dr Brims :

Okay, from your description, it seems like your husband has a herpes infection, but it may not have been transmitted to you

Customer:

I thought it was happening because of me at my end I had yeast and I didn't know.

Dr Brims :

I doubt it is yeast, usually yeast infections don't cause these symptoms in men

Dr Brims :

I would advise your husband get tested

Customer:

really because yeast would eat my skin and his after we had sex. and this started to happen after my 2 baby during pregancy

Dr Brims :

Yeast rarely causes these symptoms in men, but it is possible, only a test can determine for sure

Customer:

do you know how much it would be?

Dr Brims :

You mean how much the test would be?

Customer:

yes ,how can herpes happen

Dr Brims :

Herpes is transmitted through sexual contact, or contact with any infected surface , even a towel

Dr Brims :

Are you there?

Customer:

yes

Dr Brims :

Do you understand my reply?

Customer:

wow really!! okay so how much would the test be?

Dr Brims :

It may be around $50-100, it depends on the lab

Customer:

not bad at all. so how often can we buy new towels

Dr Brims :

You don't need to buy new towels, you only need to wash them and not share towels

Customer:

okay. my husband wants me to ask you, why does this happen to him only when we have sex?

Dr Brims :

It may occur when there is irritation caused by sex

Customer:

he said the red bumps go away by their self, and its only sometimes when we have sex its not all the time the bumps come.

Dr Brims :

Okay, I understand

Customer:

do you still think its herpes

Dr Brims :

It seems like it may be a yeast infection, but I would recommend a test to rule out herpes

Customer:

men can get yeast infections too? can I treat it with the cream I use when I get yeast?

Dr Brims :

If it is a yeast infection you can use the same cream

Customer:

well okay, Thank you soo much and have a good night godbless.
