Is it painful?

Also how long you had this?

Did it appear as blister?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There was no blister before, unless I just did not notice the blister.I have had this for 2 maybe 3 days. I went urinate the two days ago and I noticed the bumps.My urinating has been iritating in the tip of my head as well.The bumps are not "painful" it's sensitive to touch but I'm not in pain.
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

Any recent sexual intercourse?

did you use condom?

any new soap?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I had sex w my girlfriend last Saturday without a condom.
We have been having unprotected sex for years now and this is the first we have seen of anything.
We have been monogamous for 1-2 years also.
No new soap.
What are your thoughts?
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

The appearance is suspicious of genital herpes.

But genital herpes rash is usually very painful.

Another possibility is allergic reaction --a more likely condition --can be against vaginal fluid or yeast commonly.

I will suggest you to get a clinical evaluation and get tested for genital herpes to get that concern out of the way.

Best wishes,

Thank you. I will.
What does the urinating irritation suggest to you?
What could be causing that?
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

That can be due to the urethral irritation a well.

Can be from urinary tract infection.

STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia also should be checked but less likely.

Best wishes

Sorry to bother you. I have an additional question about this...
If my girlfriend is not having an outbreak like me in her genitals, what would that suggest?
Should ahe get tested as well?
If so, how would they test her?
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

You should get tested first.

If anything positive then she should be tested otherwise not.

Best wishes

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have an appointment set.
Do you think it could be a bacteria or something other than an STD?
Reason I ask is because I sweat a lot and wear tight compression shorts sometimes two days in a row.
Would that cause you to suggest anything?
Thank you again for your prompt responses and time.
I will be sure to write a review that you deserve.
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

STD is unlikely only a possibility.

I feel this more likely related to heat and sweat some sort of allergic reaction not infection at all.

Best wishes

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry can you rephrase that please?
Are you saying this is possibly an STD?
Or it is more so a allergic reaction?
I want to make sure I understand you 100%.
Thank you!
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Did you receive my previous message?
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

This is more likely an allergic reaction.

Less likely STD.

Best wishes

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok. Thank you!
Would having mild fever like symptoms and the burning urination sensations I mentioned earlier suggest anything else?
Thank you!
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

That is common with urinary tract infection --can occur even without sexual transmission commonly.

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I had a urine sample and they said it was not a UTI...
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

Ok --in that case, this is unrelated.

feverish feeling can be a viral infection.

irritation is unrelated.

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Viral infection is genital herpes? Or is that something different you are referring to?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Do you have a different diagnosis now?
What would you suggest it is?
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

Cold virus can cause feverish feeling.

Yes herpes also possible.

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i got a swab of the bumps, need to wait a few days for results.
Since there is no pain around the subject like you mentioned previously, do you think it is more an allergic reaction or herpes?
Thank you!
Dermatologist: Dr Basu, Doctor (other than dermatologist) replied 1 year ago

More likely allergic reaction.

Not an infection or herpes.

Will the swab be able to gather the info it needs if it is not an open bump?
My bumps have not changed form
I want to make sure the swab can accurately get a reading
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 1 year ago

Do you have history of fever blisters ?

The swab would not reveal anything about the herpes but about the bacteria involved.

Have you got the blood test for herpes ?

Do let me know
thank you
