1) I don’t believe my scrotum tingling is due to herpes because I have experienced it for 50 days straight, and the tingling is bilateral. The fact that the tingling is bilateral excludes herpes. Agree or disagree?
2) A herpes primary infection does not cause tingling in the absence of lesions. Furthermore, I did not even touch my scrotum during the sexual encounter, therefore I couldn’t have rubbed the virus into my scrotum. Plus the skin of scrotum is thick as well meaning it is unlikely to rub virus in. Agree or disagree?
3) In this statement I am talking about primary infection only: If I rubbed the virus into the penis, the herpes virus would affect the penis only. It wouldn’t “travel” from the penis to scrotum to just affect the scrotum only and cause tingling as only symptom. Agree or disagree?
well, it is possible to be infected at one location and have symptoms later at another.
4) Someone has mentioned to me that I may have constant tingling for 50 days as the virus is trying to break the skin and cause blisters, but fail due to the immune system, hence constant reattempts of the virus to try to break the skin and therefore cause constant tingling as a result. Dr Hook has said that this is not possible at all and whoever told me is completely off base. Do you agree? (Of course I don’t expect your assessment to deviate from Dr Hook) however Dr Hook told me to ask you questions too since you are the world leading expert.
I don’t know who told you that but I believe them to be wrong. I would strongly agree with Dr. Hook here.
5) My other symptoms: Muscle twitching, throbbing sensation inside balls, sharp pain in scrotum skin (for a split second every now and then), prickling sensation. These symptoms are not herpes symptoms (especially since symptoms are bilateral and no lesions are present) – Agree or disagree?
