Absolutely nothing that you have listed here as symptoms concern me that they are related to a genital herpes infection. Even people with have genital herpes do not really report pain IN the penis as a symptom though they may report pain at the site of outbreaks or pain down the leg before an outbreak. Have you had any testing done?

That is great to hear. Thank you.
I was urine tested twice, hiv tested once and did a herpes, hep b plus others test once at the 6 week from potential exposure. I am now at 9-10 weeks
All came back clear except for hsv-1, I have had coldsores on the lip rarely since young.
It is intermittent pain inside the penis. It goes from dull to sharp through out the day. Enough to disrupt my sleep.
Would you have a ball park guess at what it could potentially be?

If you did testing for the common STI’s including gonorrhea and chlamydia as well, I don’t know what this pain might be coming from. So sorry – is sounds truly annoying. A urologist would be a follow up recommendation

I have continued with the gabapentin, antibiotics and topical cream to ease symptoms. It does hurt near the urethra exit when ejaculate (a sting) as of 2 days ago and as of 2 hrs ago what was diagnosed as jock itch has opened up amongst it in 4 thin cuts. About 1cm long paper cuts and one is 2-3mm wide.
No blisters or spots or leakage just sore because its an open cut. Im fairly confident this isnt herpes but wanted to double check. Thank you.

An open cut near the urethra is concerning – didn’t have that info previously. I hope someone swab tested that for herpes because that’s a whole different thing than what I thought you were describing previously.
