Asked by on February 14, 2017

Basically I had unprotected oral sex almost 3 weeks ago. A couple days later I found a red spot or raised skin on my penis. Went and got tested the next day and said I was positive for hsv1. But the doctor also said I’ve probably had it for a while since it takes time for somthing to show up right away. Next couple days I felt very fatigued but not anymore. I noticed a red spot also on my tounge. About the size of a dime right the middle. The red spots or lesions on my penis have not progressed into blisters or anything and are not painful and it’s been 3 weeks. I have had some type of raised hemroid or somthing appear on my anus and have also had random rashes come and go on my leg? Any one have any ideas ???

And how long till symptoms start to go away? They say it is highly contagious but I don't understand how? In which way is it passed if it highly contagious and there is no sore present ?

There are a few possible scenarios that could explain your symptoms. First, it’s important to know that you can spread herpes (HSV 1) even when not experiencing symptoms. So it’s possible you acquired herpes prior to your recent sexual encounter and you are just now showing symptoms.

Also, the herpes virus can be spread from the mouth to the genitals, which might account for the sores in your mouth.

Syphilis is another STD that can manifest as sores or rashes across the body. However, the only way to get an accurate diagnosis is to go in for another doctor’s visit and have an exam done. Your symptoms might be the result of an STD, but also might be caused by something else, so it’s important you consult with your doctor so you can get tested and begin proper treatment.
