Everything there is to know about herpes located on the penis

If you do not know what is herpes virus in general, its symptoms and statistics you can read more here.

We are talking now about sings specific to men.

Genital HSV-2 infection is more common in women (approximately one out of five women 14 to 49 years of age) than in men (about one out of nine men 14 to 49 years of age). Transmission from an infected male to his female partner is more likely than from an infected female to her male partner.

Here’s some Symptoms of Male Genital Herpes you’ll likely experience during the Primary Outbreak.

Flu or Fever (Very Common)
High Temperatures
Decreased appetite
Muscle Aches (especially in legs, groin, or lower back)
Swollen Lymph Glands
Swelling of the Penis

After feeling flu, fever, or muscle aches, you’ll start to feel an intense itching under the skin. This is the virus moving to the surface of your skin.

The next symptom you’ll experience is small little blisters appearing on the skin surface. They will appear in clusters, many of them together. The blisters will be filled with liquid. Men usually get an outbreak on the tip of the penis or the shaft, but rarely around the base. Men who have sex with men may also get blisters in or around the anus. The rash in men is usually mild — only 6 to 10 blisters.

This Primary Outbreak can last between 5 and 20 days. Again during a primary outbreak all the symptoms will be VERY INTENSE. You’ll feel miserable in this time.

Below you have some pictures with not only herpes blisters on the penis but also other conditions that appear around the penile area so that you can be able to distinguish between them. Self diagnosis of spots, lumps or rashes is not a good idea and sometimes a proper diagnosis can only be made with clinical tests.
