Customer Question
I have a single...

I have a single large blister on my scrotum. It started as a small hard pimple then transformed into a single large and soft blister in a period of 5 days. It started 2-3 days after protected sex. I felt no tingling sensation or anything, it is painless only when I press it and no burning sensation while urinating. Is it herpes or could it possible be something else.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?

No burning, only pain when I press it. It started 5 days ago

Well if its not burning then its unlikely to be herpes. Its possible for you to have blisters due to friction / rub in vigorous sexual activity. The friction can cause local skin irritation leading to blisters. Apply topical bacitracin / polymyxin B ointment topically ,take care of local hygiene of the area and it should be fine in a few days. You may take tylenol or ibuprofen for any discomfort.

Let me know if you have any further queries.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
