Thanks for your question.
There is always an ulcer from herpes before scab forms.
Besides herpes ulcer will not develop so quick within a day.
This is likely from vigorous sex.
so it would be noticeable and painful once it starts to develop?
other stds like gonorrhea or chlamydia do not cause scab formation.
So noticing a scab suddenly could be what? i guess abrasion from sex?
yes abosultely correct
abrasion from sex.
do not worry this is not std.
Just for curiousity, and since I have your attention, a herpes is painful?
the sore that is
yes herpes is very painful
the blisters appear in crops --not single
I see...and how long does it take for it to develop from redness to open ulcer to scab?
redness to ucer 2-3 days
ulcer to scab 5-7 days
and of course pain throughout the process?
after scab formation pain is usually gone
I see... does male penis skin of varying degrees of thickness and sensitivity?
I'm guessing it does, since sexual grinding may have caused this, and I may need to be more careful not to injure my member!
yes it is.
and you should be careful to avoid any penile fracture
the breaking of penis muscles rom vigorous sex--very painful and penis is swollen
thank you... you've been very helpful. Was just worried when the scab suddenly shows up with no prior redness or anything that would be typically associated with an STD.
please do not worry.
you are safe

Thank you... I will accept. May I ask one last question?
What would be the first sign of a herpes outbreak? Is it the same always, or different depending upon the person?
usually pain and appearance of blister lesions ( like bumps with fluid inside)
tingling or burning pain can be experienced as well.
That is about it
how large are the bumps, like a pimple size I guess? and in clusters you said right?
yes correct --you got it
thank you... Thats it. have a great day.
