bumps near the penis not a cluster just red dots like 4 of them .no pain or burning sensation.no pain during urination.unproteced sex with my g/f who had herpes but is on meds and hasnt had a outbreak.
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Well as you describe you need to undergo a clinical examination by a doctor and further investigations like HSV2 I g G & IgM , HIV , Complete STD panel for further evaluation .
As such genital herpes can be transmitted from infected female partner even if there was no outbreaks during unprotected sex .
As such genital herpes spread from skin to skin contact .
So the virus can be present in entire area like vulva, vagina, peri anal areas etc .
So i suggest you to visit GUM clinic for further evaluation and management .
I hope this helps.
If you have any further query then feel free to ask .

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.
