Possible Herpes?
kev5096 posted:
I had protected vaginal an oral with sw at a massage parlor on tuesday 1/22 and on Friday I noticed what appears to be two small pimples just above the shaft of my penis. There is some slight itching and tingling in the area. I was tested about a year ago and the results were negative. What are the chances this could be herpes? Thanks

It all depends on whether the sexual worker was infected with this virus and whether the virus was able to be passed on to you through this sexual contact. However, three days is a bit short for this incubation period.
