Im very sure i have herpes and its been awful knowing that. I had a reoccurrence of inflammation in my uretha/meatus/inside tip of my penis. Now its a shooting pain where this ulcerated lesion is and I can't do anything but wait for my results in 2 days. I took a photo of it and sent it to a urologist who said he believed it was herpes and he's treated herpes like this before.

I was hoping to hear if anyone else had a similar situation, advise, thoughts? Sad( could use any kind of talking...thanks.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the diagnosis for the symptoms that you describe without examining you. Wait for your investigation results and visit your doctor/urologist/Andrologist for thorough evaluation and get started on appropriate treatment based on examination findings and investigations results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/urologist/Andrologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.

Well the doctor I saw told me it wasn't herpes. I got blood
Test 9 weeks post exposure and it's negative. Also
Swabbed the ulcer inside my meatus and it was negative.
She told me that ulcers happen there and i shouldn't worry. I don't know what to do now, I am putting hydrocortisone cream and another cream on the tip bc it's pink aroun the whole. Pain has went down but the small ulcers are still there. I'm not sure what to do now, thoughts?

Hey I just seen your post, any updates on your situation? I believe it might be a fungal, not sure but if it is not hsv1/2 then you should look into that also 9 weeks is a good time to test for it it can take 6-12 weeks for things to start showing up in your blood but might want to retake it just for safe measures.
