"I am a male and had heterosexual intercourses with 2 females in mid August of this year. A few days later I had some burning and tingling sensations in my penis and had to urinate frequently. I also had a few single red bumps that appeared to look like pimples appear on my buttock and lower back. I visited a walk in doctor and tested negative for clameydia and gonhereha. The doctor also said the “pimples” did not resemble hsv and appeared more like foliculitis. The initial symptoms disappeared from that point up until November 22. At that point I began experiencing tingling, itching and burning in my buttock, thys and to a lesser extent in my penis and scrotem. The pimples as described earlier also returned (they do not contain fluid or appear to blister and I can provide images). These symptoms have been present now for over two weeks. I also have some itching on my anus. I also have experienced intermittent pain in my left leg primarily all the way down to my left foot. Would you suspect hsv-2 and can I send through a few images of the “lesions?”"

is your question

your symptoms don't point to herpes.

not wiping your anus well, having anal leakage, or excessive sweating in the anal area can cause itching there.

dry skin, bad anxiety symptoms can cause itchiness .

these pimples on your skin is not from herpes.

do you have bad anxiety symptoms?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I do not have general anxiety issues but am concerned that these generalized tingling, itching, pain symptoms have persisted for 3 weeks primarily in the sacral region with intermittent leg nerve pain. There is not an issue with dry skin or a lack of hygiene. I have read (cdc website) that in some cases hsv can irritate the sacral nerves and cause post herpectic neuralgia symptoms more commonly associated with shingles. I’m not hearing or finding another credible cause for this collection of symptoms.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

it doesn't sound like you have had a shingles outbreak in pain.

intermittent leg nerve pain can be due to lack of exercise, lack of stretching, sitting too long.

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.
