Hi there, I had unprotected with my girlfriend of 4

Customer Question

Hi there,
I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend of 4 months on Saturday. It hurt me a little at first but that's not unusual, however the next day the area under my glans was rather sore and as time has progressed there are what appears to yellow sores (not unlike scabs) under the area.
I am rather worried however that this could be herpes.
Any thoughts?

Hello
It might be, particularly if they form blisters that break open.
I would suggest an exam.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

It started to hurt a matter of hours after sex so I just assumed it was a friction burn of some description.

There are literally no other symptoms, they were never blisters that burst, never any fluid or anything like that, never cracked open.

I've attached a picture, anything white in the picture is just remains of a cream I applied last night.

This could be from trauma, but I would now have a swab test, to make sure.
