Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

how long you have these sores?

mysticdoc :

do they look like blisters?

Customer: They started on my penis about 3 days ago and progressively have been spotting and feeling te others. They don't look like blisters but look like the cold sores one gets i'n the inside of the mouth
mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

now this can be a herpes outbreak.

mysticdoc :

another possibility is bacterial infection.

mysticdoc :

Usually you should be treated for both till the culture results are available.

mysticdoc :

Hence, you should consider seeing your doctor for proper testing.

mysticdoc :

refrain from any sexual or physicallly intimate activities till these sores are gone.

mysticdoc :

Best wishes

Customer: If it is herpes , what kind do you think it is ?? Since I have them i'n different parts of the body
mysticdoc :

this can be herpes type 2 since it usually starts i genitalia, but can spread to other parts of the body.

Customer: Thank you
mysticdoc :

very welcome
