I had unprotected oral and protected sex on February. Around March i developed a Pimple on my shaft. I worried i contact std since i never had a pimple in my genital before. Went to get test came back for hsv-1 positive. I was wondering could i have HPV or genital hsv-1. Let me describe the pimple/bump for you. First it was just a normal red small pimple. Couple days it grew big with white/yellow/clear puss. Doesn't really hurt but just big when i touch it. Doesn't itch at all. One time i touch it and it pop small amount of liquid came out. Next day it went back how it look at the first;just a small red pimple doesn't look it had puss inside of it. So i just left it alone so it can heal. Been at least a month still there same size so i got a needle and picked it and squeezed it very small amount of white puss (i think) came out. I put some cream on it so it can heal. It did now i have no pimple or bump just a small dent(like a piece of skin was torn off) from the pimple. Does the pimple/bump sound like HPV and genital hsv-1? There no test for HPV :( thank you all

Thanks for posting. It's hard to say what is the most likely cause of the pimple/bump you noticed; could be any number of things. We can't really offer a medical opinion, sorry to say, but I can tell you warts don't characteristically have fluid or pus in them. Genital warts are almost always accurately diagnosed with a visual inspection: did you have a blood test when you went to the clinic, or did someone actually look at your symptoms? They may be able to give you a pretty good idea based on what they saw. A blood test for HSV-1 doesn't always tell the tale, because so many people have oral HSV-1 (like with cold sores).

What exactly did they say at the clinic?

Best,
Fredo

I went to get standard testing everything came back negative except hsv-1-4.44 high. At the point i didnt had any symptom just went because i had single pimple. Then about 2 week after i been getting weird symptom; tingling and burning at my shaft that comes and goes. It might be that i been thinking about it too much. Since the pimple gone i can't go to the doctor to get it looked at :(. At first it just a pimple with no puss/fluid but later grew big with fluid inside. Since it had fluid it not wart? Thank you very much fredo you make me feel much better
