wanderer Posted September 1, 2008 Share Posted September 1, 2008 i need some real help this time. saturday night i slept with a girl, a friend of mine, who i've known for several years but have never had sex with. i wore a condom and took a shower about an hour after we had sex and washed my genitals with regular bar soap. however, only about 2 hours ago (so about 24 hours after we had sex) i noticed i had a few small marks on the shaft of my penis. they look like very small zits or small pimples. they don't burn or itch or anything right now. as soon as i noticed it, i washed it off with antibacterial soap and put on some bacitracin and then washed my hands. like i said, i wore a condom but i wouldn't rule out that part of the skin on my penis was still exposed to her genitals. i've been friends with this girl for a few years now and have never known her to have any diseases (although the subject never came up) but i'm very worried right now that i may have accidentally contracted herpes or cold sores. i don't know very much about this virus and since it's now 5am where i am, i can't run out to a doctor's office right now. from what i looked up so far, what i have looks similar to pictures i've found online and now i am very worried. i plan on calling my doctor's office tomorrow and setting up an appointment to show my doctor and describe the situation. right now i'm an emotional wreck, however. i tend to worry a lot about my health in general, and my mind is prone to running off and scaring myself with my own thoughts. i feel awful. i can't sleep (obviously) and i didn't get much sleep last night either, so i hope i'm just overreacting from lack of sleep or something, but i feel so horrible right now. there are a few other things that have been bothering me recently, small things, but i think i'm now roping all my concerns into one larger paranoid episode. i don't know what to do, i really need some advice. i feel like a jerk and i understand i really messed this one up.
