Hi Doc,
I have notices 3 sores on my penis balls and they were painfull for about 48 hours and after putting some antifungal cream the pain seems to be subsiding. I have been reading some articles and the symptoms seems like Herpes! What are the chances that it is something other than herpes?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the sores on scrotum that you describe without examining them. You should visit your doctor/urologist for examination, further assistance and treatment. The exact cause can only be made out after careful examination and further evaluation. Avoid self treatment. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) would be started to help you. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring with your treating doctor/urologist as required.
Take care.
