I recieved oral from a with chaffed skin on my penis 1 month

Customer Question

I recieved oral from a prostitute with chaffed skin on my penis 1 month 1/2 ago, I've been to many Drs and had some bumps swabbed that came back negative and got full std panel that showed I had an NGU that's all, I haven't had any blisters on my penis just some single little cysts with white puss in them the dr said they aren't herpes , but I'm gonna insert a picture I took about two weeks after the encounter on my thigh it's really scaring me it really looks like herpes, the girl had no active sores during the time and had none when I saw her a week later , because I asked her to meet me to see if she'd ever had a cold sore and she said no but she has a sibling who does , I'm really afraid I'm getting a blood test at the end of the month. Please look at this picture :( I've also had a lot of jumping nerves and stuff in my legs

They didn't hurt I didn't even know they were there, they looked like pimples at first then had dry skin?
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 9 months ago.

Thank you for that additional information and the picture.

Ok I've decided to go ahead to the dr in the morning again but what do you think doc? How likely
Is it if she had no active symptoms , ?
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 9 months ago.

Those look like Molluscum contagiosum. It does not look like herpes in the picture.

Well ok I'll tip and all, so why doesn't it look like herpes and if she had no symptoms how likely is it? My dr said not likely , but I know about viral shedding, and I had the chaffed skin on penis so it's ahold chance :/
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 9 months ago.

That is not what herpes looks like.......

I agree with your MD: It is very unlikely from what you have posted, including your picture, that you caught herpes. Herpes does not need a break in the skin to infect you so the chaffing of your penile skin doesn't really figure into your risk.

Make sense?
