I️ am 26 and a male
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I had sex on Sunday, I️t is now Tuesday.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I do not have any painful bumps or blisters on my genitals however this was with a sex worked in Amsterdam and I used a condom for both oral and vaginal sex
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
My primary question is what is the earliest I can get tested to see if I have contracted HPV or HV2. I feel like i already have symptoms (itching, tingling) however I feel like that may be just me being paranoid
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I would also like this to remain confidential

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.

Theoretically speaking herpes and HPV can be transmitted from skin to skin contact on areas not covered by condom.

The average incubation period for an initial herpes infection is 4 days (range, 2 to 12) after exposure.

The estimated incubation period from HPV infection to genital wart development is 2 weeks to 8 months, with the majority of genital warts appearing 2–3 months after an HPV infection.

You can get tested once the incubation period has passed.

I do think you are getting anxious.

You should get tested only if you have visible symptoms especially bumps or warts etc.

If you test negative for herpes, retest after 3 months to confirm the initial result.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

if I just experience itching in my eyes and pubic region then i should not be concerned? I am slightly concerned just about the potential for contracting I️t
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have seen no signs of bumps or even redness after 3 days so I would assume that the itching is brought on by the thought of having an infection
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have a white blister under my eye and I️t has started to itch. I️m not sure if this is a result of what I think I contracted in HSV 2, can you get HSV2 from touching genitals and then proceeding to touch your eye?

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thank you for replying back.

As per your description,these symptoms are not suggesting HSV 2 infection.

And you shouldn't panic at all.

You should try OTC Alaway eye drops in eyes twice a day and Refresh eye drops twice a day.

Also application of OTC Hydrocort ointment on pubic area can be helpful.

Do cool water sitz bath.

Take OTC Allegra.

Maintain a good hydration.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

Would I be able to see signs of an HSV infection this early on? With I️t being around 3-4 days? I just want to know if I have I️t at this point and are there any early symptoms

No, it's too early and it usually takes time.

Chances of Herpes with your current symptoms are very slim.

Hope this helps.

Is that also true for the burning sensation at the top of my penis? I have read that comes largely with anxiety in men, is that also true?

Burning sensation and later appearance of painful fluid filled blisters on genitals are symptoms of Herpes.

Burning sensation itself on top of penis is not indicating Herpes.

It can be associated with irritation,friction,anxiety.

Hope this helps.

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
the burning sensation occurring now could be a precursor to a diagnosis for HSV2?

It can be a precursor if you 'll develop painful fluid filled blisters in next 3 days.

Otherwise it's not related to herpes.

Hope this helps.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Okay thank you very much. Are the blisters very noticeable?

In most of the cases they are very painful fluid filled blisters very noticeable.

Start a multi-vitamin & multi-mineral supplement to maintain a good immunity.

Try other self care remedies mentioned in previous replies.

Does I️t at least cause a rash first and then proceed to turn into blisters and bumps. I have a tingling and burning sensation in my legs/inner thigh but I feel like it’s just me thinking that and I️t not actually being irritated

Herpes blisters appear in genital area most likely.

Not like rash.

Your tingling and burning sensation in my legs/inner thigh are not associated it.

If you have rash then it can be fungal infection.

And OTC Lotrimin ointment can be tried.

Hope this helps.

I am very nervous still as to what I can do to ensure that this is not herpes besides wait 6 weeks to determine the results of any testing

I understand your anxiety.

And I give you reassurance that chances of herpes are very slim in your case.

Try to relax yourself.

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.
