Hi and thanks for the query.

Do you have a recent history of unprotected sexual contact with anyone of unknown STD status?

How long have you had the sore for?

Is the pain sharp and tingling?

Can you attach a picture?

I had u protected sex but I know she doesn't have anything and I've had this sore for about 4 days now and the pain is sharp it doesn't look like it's growing at all but still painful to the touch and I cant send u a picture
Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 2 years ago

Hi and thanks for the query.

Fungal lesions are characteristically itchy and develop a white crust around them, they are not painful.

An open sore on the penis which stings or develops a sharp pain is a characteristic of herpes sore.

The best way however, to evaluate a herpetic lesion is by visual analysis, since I have not seen the lesion, it is difficult to determine its etiology correctly. The symptoms you exhibit are of a herpetic lesion. The best course of action will be to see your PCP for an examination and a more thorough evaluation.

I would suggest that you apply Fucidic acid + hydrocortisone ointment on the lesion available OTC for the time being to prevent secondary bacterial infection on the sore.

Hope this helps.

Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the picture.

These do look like herpetic lesions.

You should see your PCP for further evaluation and confirmation of the diagnosis.

Hope this helps.

Your 100% certain?
Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 2 years ago

With these lesions 100 percent certainty can only be achieved when one has examined the lesion and tested it. Tests are cell culture and a PCR blood test.

That is why I have suggested that you see your PCP.
