Thanks for your time to answer my questions!
I wrote you yesterday about a small fissure or cut that could be related to Herpes.
I am defenetlely geting tested in 10 weeks.
I would like to please ask you a few more questions in the mean time . I just payded for another question.
The small fissure was covered in a small amount of a white substance. This white substance was also in my penis shaft.. I washed and cleaned the area and very noticed a very small fissure-cut..
I also notice white flakey dry skin around the area..This made me think that hopefully it may be an irritation or reaction to yeast..
I would like to add that just before becoming aware of this I drove two days across the desert, it was quite hot. Maybe this could be conducive to yeast…
I read online than yeast infection in circumcised man are quite rear..
Do you hear much about people having small fissures caused by candidiasis or Trush instead of Herpes?
Could this white substance be related to HSV2?
The small fissure was smaller than a grain of rice, it never hurted when I touched it.
Can a herpes fissure or cuts be painless and also not itch or burn?
It’s posible that I could have missed the initial stage of this and became aware later but I think it’s unlikely…
For what I noticed this fissure scbed and healed in 3 to 4 days.
Is it likely for a first non primary hsv 2 outbrake resolves in 3 to 4 days?
Dr handsfield wrote that most HSV 2 first out brakes in people that have HSV 1 most of the time does not follow the classic symptoms and many time are confused by Trush, yeast, insect bites, ingroewn hair etc..
He also said that by far the main reason of fissure and abrasions that leave a scab in the genital are herpes releted. This makes me very concerned…
Would you agree with that?
I have 2 photos, could I please send them to you, I would really like you to tell me what you think
Your estimate of 70% not being herpes sounds much better than what I expected. I hope you feel the same after seeing the photo.
Please let me know where to send them…

You know you only have to pay for a new question when you have used up three posts right?
This could be yeast, yes, we do see that particularly in uncircumcised men and sometimes in men who have been circumcised. The white leads a bit more in that direction. I guess my concern is the scabbing. I don’t usually see yeast scabbing.
Yes, when someone has HSV 1 on board already, the acquisition of HSV 2 is more likely to without symptoms or with very mild symptoms. And it is also true that the main cause of open/scabbed genital lesions of any kind in the US is herpes. But there are certainly exceptions to this and since you started a whole new post instead of connecting it with your old one, I don’t recall what your situation is. Refresh my memory please in terms of testing and sexual partners
