Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

What is your question?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

How can I help you today?4

Customer: Hello
Dr. Shahzad MD :

hi

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Can you please elaborate your question

Customer: Yesterday morning I noticed a pimple on my penis
Dr. Shahzad MD :

ok

Dr. Shahzad MD :

How big is the pimple?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is it painful?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you recently had unprotected sex with someone?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

What is your age and gender?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sorry age only

Customer: It was very small so I couldn't tell if it's a blister or pimple. I squeezed it and it completely disappeared. There was no pain no itching or redness on the skin
Customer: As soon as I squeezed it it disappeared. I couldn't even tell where it was straight after wards
Customer: No unprotected sex I am male 30
Dr. Shahzad MD :

With what you are describing it seems very unlikely to be herpes. Herpes does not present with a single lesion usually and does not go away like that.
So this is not herpes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since you have not had any unprotected sex with anyone, this goes further against the diagnosis of herpes.

Customer: I have not had sex for over a year. And I habe never had unprotected sèx everyone herpes hurt?
Customer: I am circumcised too
Customer: It was very small. I do have some fordyce spots there which never change.
Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is not genital herpes

Customer: Are u sure?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am sure

Customer: What makes u say that?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Because it was only one pimple and went away and you have never had any sex in the past one year and no unprotected sex ever.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you do not have even a single risk factor for herpes and it does not appear or sound like herpes as well.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So I would not worry at all.

Customer: What I don't understand is how can it disappear so quick? I gently squeezed it and it went, I am looking at my penis now and there is no red skin, no pain or scar
Customer: What do u think it was
Dr. Shahzad MD :

It may be a blocked skin gland and that's all

Customer: Does a blocked skin gland look like a single blister?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It can appear like a single tiny blister

Customer: Are u sure doctor? I am getting married soon and don't want to pass herpes over
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am sure

Dr. Shahzad MD :

you do not have herpes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

relax

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are just thinking about it too much

Customer: What would normally happen if u squeezed a herpes blister? Would it be painful? Would it go away straight away like mine did?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

very painful

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It would not go straight away

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It would make a small ulcer.

Customer: What would happen?
Customer: Ah ok
Customer: I have no ulcer
Customer: I have stretched my skin many times since yesterday and I can't see anything there at all including ulcer
Customer: I am still not convinced though
Customer: What if it is herpes.
Dr. Shahzad MD :

You do not have herpes, I am sure

Customer: And ur sure herpes would not go away so quick?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes I am sure

Customer: Ok so I can relax?
Customer: Should I get tested or no?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

No need to be tested.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You can relax

Customer: Ok great thanks
Customer: Thanks for ur help
