Hello,I am Dr.Aren and I will help with your query.Your second test for herpes was apparently a false negative.The fact that you still have a non-healing ulcer/scab on the penis confirms active genital herpes.It would be prudent to get help from your PCP/doctor who can test you again for HSV1 and 2 and give you advice on how to deal with it.It would be prudent to be tested for virological and serological tests for herpes,PCR testing can also be done.

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.
