Question: Rash on Penis and Mouth

 Pattie - Thu Feb 03, 2005 8:07 pm

My boyfriend developed a pimple on the side of his mouth and a couple of days later the same kind of pimples (3 of them infact) developed on one side of his penis at the same position. They then became watery and now they are drying up. I've been pushing him to see the doctor but he says it's gonna be okay. We have been together for four years and he's been faithful to me but I feel like he's contracted an STD. I'm suspecting him maybe to have played me but I have not even the slightest clue with whom and he's also very honest about what's going on with his body. Do you think it could be an STD and if it is, which one might it be?
Also, how long can an STD stay in a man's body before revealing itself like in his case?

User avatar Hi Pattie,
Some of the symptoms of herpes are as follows, small red bumps appear first, develop into blisters, and then become painful open sores. Over several days, the sores become crusty then heal and leave no scars. With herpes, the virus becomes active and causes outbreaks several times (4 to 5) a year. I would encourage an evaluation especially if the above sounds accurate to your situation.
