Hi all earlier this week my boyfriend and I did not use lubrication for sex and it painfully tugged and potentially tore parts of the skin on his penis head. The next day he saw open wounds along the sides of the head of his penis. Days later there is scabbing and some raised red bumps too. Anyone have experience with penis chafing burns or bumps? Also has anyone had genital herpes with no itching, especially if there were blisters or lesions present? I am HSV2 positive and we are concerned that I passed it. Thanks so much
Recently diagnosed. As much info as I have read and continue to try and find, my biggest lingering question right now on the brain is how transmissible is HSV-1 orally, if I have only had it in the genital area? Like, is shedding likely to happen orally if I have only had symptoms below the belt? There may not be a definitive answer to this question.
If a male and female couple both has herpes and has sex without condoms, is there any such thing as getting even more herpes? Pregnancy is not a worry, we've been 'fixed' we are in a monogamous relationship, just want to make sure we aren't putting each other at any more risk.
