I have certainly seen men with an outbreak on the head of the penis. What I have not seen is a primary infection with only lesions on the head of the penis. Honestly, the rashes that you describe sound like balanitis which is normally not caused by herpes. And the time these rashes last is more consistent with candida balanitis than with herpes. It is not correct that most outbreaks in men occur on the glans, most occur on the shaft of the penis.
I understand that it is expensive to be tested where you are, but don’t you think it would be good to know if you really have herpes before living as though you do?
