To my knowledge and hers she’s negative. She’s been tested and remembers it being negative. We’ve been together for almost 5 years and when I was going through my diagnosis a year and a half ago for inverse psoriasis I was tested thoroughly for herpes because it presented similar symptoms. I believe if she was positive it would of showed up on my tests, correct?
Because the HPV bump, is about 5mm away from this lesion which is a small red circle with a scab over it roughly 2mm in size. Basically it was where healthy skin was but I know for a fact Aldara was put on this patch on skin and left on for multiple days in a row continuously. It has been present going on 10 days now. It seems to be slowly healing but it has me a little paranoid. That’s why I’m curious about the PCR, maybe being a more reliable option?
But what you’re saying is you’ve seen sores and/or tiny ulcers form from the overuse of Aldara on healthy skin cells due to the irritation it causes?
Apologies for the redundancy in questioning but I need your opinion, because ultimately I want to know for sure if i have this or not. I’ve been tested so many times (IgG 10 or more/ Blot 1 time; all negative).
I’ve read in the forum that you’ve had 10 patients in 35 years test negative on the blot but swab positive on a PCR. My question for you now is this…
Out of those 10 were more infected with HSV 1 or HSV 2 when swabbed?
Has there been a study done on the percentage of people that are believed to not serocovert?
Yeah that definitely makes sense. So as it stands now, you believe the sore to be from the Aldara rather than HSV, which I keep testing negative for through the blot and through the IgG? Because this sore has been here now for 7 going on 8 days. Obviously if it happens without using Aldara then go get it swabbed, but for now I can probably assume it’s from my own negligence?
I was also, just diagnosed with inverse Psoriasis via a skin punch biopsy. Could this be the cause of the bump on my scrotum?
Thanks Terri, just to be safe, I’m going to go get tested again.
Also I’ve had the feeling of urine trapped in my urethra. It feels like there is liquid in my urethra and when I go to check there’s nothing there. I believe it was at the end of May, I woke up one morning, went to the bathroom and thick white discharge was released from my penis when I squeezed. I went to urgent Care and asked them to test me. They tested me for Chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Both came back negative. They gave doxycycline for 10 days and never did a follow up. I finished the medication and went to an anylab near my house and had a full STD panel done on me which included HSV 1&2 IgG w/reflex. Well now it’s 20 some odd days later and I’m having the same feeling of liquid oozing out of my urethra. Most of the time I squeeze, nothing is there. No burning sensation when I urinate. Twice now I’ve seen very minute traces of clear liquid but no burning. Just the feeling of constant leaking.
Does this sound like herpetic urethritis to you?
I scheduled an appointment with a urologist but the earliest they can see me is next Friday. A whole week from now.
Should I wait? Or go to urgent care?
Also, the bump size is roughly 1-3mm. Very small singular bump.
It’s now been one full day since I’ve noticed the bump in question, and it seems to be almost gone. Really weird.
Also, thank you very much for your time, information, guidance, and concern. Your website is fantastic.
Also, can you transmit HSV-1 or HSV-2 through a handjob? If so what is the likelihood of transmitting it to someone? Maybe you could give me a percentage of the likelihood?

So I can trust my results is what you’re saying? Also, is the transmission rate low considering my situation? I saw no visible sores, her status is unknown.
