I had protected sex with a woman 10 weeks ago. 36 hours later, I notice a very small cluster of 3 or 4 clear filled pustules at the base of my penis. I fear its hsv2. I take 1g of valtrex immediately and follow for 7 days. The pustules/sores never hurt like a cold sore. I've had them for 20 years and know well what they feel like. These were never hard and came and went in 3 days. Completely gone. At the same time, the day after I saw this girl, I began to have what are best described as "pinching" feelings in my scrotum. Not painful and they change location daliy. Sometimes on the side, sometimes at the top, sometimes between my testicles. It feels like a skin condition but there is very little in the way of physical evidence, i.e. no rash or sores. Its worse when I am standing and walking. If I am not wearing clothes and its allowed to hang without touching my legs, after a shower or when i wake or seated there is no problem.

Herpes and Genital Warts Answer A55808
Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. With protected coitus these bumps are likely benign and clogged sebaceous pores. You have them for last 2o years. These resolved earlier, these will resolve again. Just dont pop poke or pick them and maintain a good hygiene. Seek a doctor if the issue persists. No harm in getting STD work up.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
