Question
herpes?
herpes?  
Hello there, i have been having this pimple like blister on my penis head. Before this i have had 3 relationship where all my gf i have had sex with were unprotected. Now with my recent partner i have known her a year and i know she is clean. But after having sex 2 months after dating, i have had this blister or pimple on my penis. When i first had it i had no symtopms of herpes like fever or anything like that. The thing is how can i get it while before this i had no problems, and i read i can get herpes after 1-3 weeks. But i have been with my recent partner for 5 months now and now i m having this.

Answer
Greetings,

That fits the profile of herpes and if I were you, I would get it tested by your primary care provider because the pus filled blister is extremely abnormal. Make an appointment with your physician as soon as possible and avoid intercourse for the time being unless it is protected. Let me know what your provider tells you.

Best wishes,

John
