Thank you for the quick response and all that you do. This has been very stressful so thank you for the reassurance. I am hoping it is maybe something fungal related as the 2nd partner had a yeast infection and the dermatologist said there could have been something fungal that was mostly gone by the time she saw me due to the redness she saw and the pictures I took earlier to show her. What has been unnerving is how the symptoms seem to keep changing. Yesterday I felt almost normal and today I am back to lower back pain, testicle pain, and irritation of the skin in my boxers area when I am sitting (its been about 4 weeks of symptoms).
What worries me is the off chance that I contracted genital herpes from the first partner and then the outbreak was caused by the friction of intercourse with the second partner. Does this seem like a possibility? I have had some other symptoms: a couple times I felt a stinging in my urethra, dry skin throughout my body, potentially aching knees and a moist feeling around my anus. Again they have all been changing so it is hard to keep track of them and I’m not sure if that is normal or if some of that could also be my stress. Is it normal to have so many symptoms that keep changing like that?
Thank you again Terri.
