    What kind of genital sore could this be?
    An_249112 posted:
    This started out as a small cut. I continued to have sex and the cut became more ulcerated. I have what I thought was a friction burn on my penis. My doctor said she couldn't identify it conclusively and took a swab/culture to check for herpes. My girlfriend is not showing any signs of herpes, but currently has a yeast infection. I'm wondering if it could possibly have to do with that. A few months ago I had a blood test for HSV 2 and it was negative. I've been with 3 people since then who have all claimed that they have had negative herpes test results.

    While I'm waiting for the results, I would like some other opinions on what it looks like.
