Thank you for answering questions Terri.
https://imgur.com/a/DA3Zg58 Does this look like something that is similar to HSV2 ?
Today Update: I went to STD Clinic close by just to get a 2nd opinion.
I was told that what I had looked nothing like herpetic at all. And the NP said she would bet her paycheck on it, but did notice I did have a little urine discharge left over. Though I did just test negative for gono/chlamid on Monday.
I told her I read having hsv1 (which I’ve had for years – orally) would lessen HSV2 symptoms, she said she hasn’t heard of that.
Also checked my lymph nodes in my groin and said they were not enlarged whatsoever and they usually are huge in herpetic outbreak.
Would the fact that I already have OHSV1 lessen my physical appearances if I contracted GHSV2?Would it also cause lymph nodes to not swell?
Does GHSV2 cause any urine drip in men (if there are no lesions inside urethra)? She mentioned to see urologists perhaps.

Thank you. I saw my doctor today and said that it definitely did not look like herpes and could be friction burn. Said he could not swab it, when I said lesion I meant more loosely that it just looked like very very minor open skin. Perhaps from usage, masturbation or sex, if friction is the case.
Could you answer my questions, please:
Does herpes cause flaking of the skin at all? (I noticed flaking about a week ago when the redness began, I could rub my finger on the redness and skin would come off).
At 2 weeks post potential exposure , should I be experiencing more issues now?
How rapid do red spots turn into actual blisters, is it quickly?
Or would fluid blisters or lesions have popped up right after my redness appeared?
It feels like I am having some burning on the left side of my penis, right side is primarily affected with the redness but I also have 2 little red spots right under the penis head. Is burning a main symptom of primary infection and is it constant, or does it generally happen after a blister is formed and popped?
Sorry I have been positive for hsv1 for years from a blood test. My concern isn’t hsv1 genitally. My concern is that if having hsv1 antibodies will cause HSV2 antibodies to show up later?
And concerns if a 9 and a half week blood test is relatively accurate for HSV2 ?
I have only been tested for HSV2 in my recent test I got back that was negagvif at 9 and a half weeks. I just want to know the accuracy % of that test.
1 MG (or GM?) Valtrex, it was a 14 day supply. I took it right before the first blood test. However this recent 9 and a half week test, I had not taken any in about 3 weeks prior to that.
I have tested positive for HSV 1 before. I have also been tested positive for other STI infections yes and came up negative
