Dr I have had a sore appear on my penis shaft.
I had lengthy rotected sex 2 nights ago and again in the morning. I'm concerned i have a herpes infection. Can you look at the photo and let me know your thoughts I will post a few but you will see the sore I am talking about half way down the shaft.
Some relevant background, about 3 months ago i received unprotect oral sex and thought i may have contracted hsv1 as i kissed the girl beforehand and i had a healing cold sore at the time, 2 weeks later a lesion appeared ina different position on my penis to now but it disapearred within 48 hrs and was never sore to touch. I have since had drs tell me that this initial symptom/concern is very much not herpatic symptoms so i disregarded it as advised.
now this. this lesion is tender to touch but not sore otherwise/walking around etc.
What is your opinion please.
