Hi, I wanted to know if someone could help me with my situation? I'm male, circumcised.
Last week on 5/8, I visited a Korean massage parlor in the morning. We both wore masks the entire time. The attendant performed condom protected oral sex on me, and then during condom protected vaginal, the condom broke and I ejaculated inside of her. I was not inside her unprotected for any more than 30 seconds and only the top 1/3 of my penis was exposed. But I know this is still an unprotected exposure. I immediately washed myself off with soap and water. Including inside my urethra. She the applied rubbing alcohol to me also, again, inside my urethra as well. I then went to the bathroom to urinate. She also seemed scared when the condom broke and said she didn't have anything. On my way home, I felt some irritation to the head of my penis but figured it was just irritation.
When I got home, I took 500mg of leftover amoxicillin (Bad idea, I know, but I was too afraid to think straight.) I got a headache later that night. Maybe from the amoxicillin? My throat started to feel strange. Not sore, but like something was swollen back there. I check it and it looked normal. But it definitely felt like something was swollen on the right side, especially with my neck tilted to certain positions. The next morning, I took 3g of amoxicillin and got an even worse headache later in the day. My head rate was also much faster for the next 2 days.
The next day (2 days after the exposure) the symptoms started. It was a mild burning at the head of my penis (mostly the sides of the head and the space in between the head and the shaft. I also had burning in my urethra. Mostly at the tip and inside the top 1/3 of the urethra. These spaces each usually only burn one at a time, not at the same time. That night, I applied Lotrimin Ultra antifungal cream to the head and the burning seemed to ease up in just 20 or so minutes. I went to bed and visited the clinic the next morning. The burning was still there and they took a urine test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, but it'll be 2 weeks until I get the results. I was negative for HIV. I continued to apply the antifungal cream and the burning has become intermittent. My heart rate has also returned to normal (when I'm relaxed and not as anxious). I've been checking constantly with a magnifying glass for blisters but haven't found anything yet. No discharge either. I've also been checking my temperature and it has been normal.
But last night, (5 days after the exposure) I started to experience flu like symptoms. That is, My body felt warm, but had no temperature whenever I check with a thermometer. But I also had shivers and felt cold too. I also have shortness of breath. When I breathe in, my lungs feel, strange.
I woke up today, the chills were gone, but I still have intermittent urethra twinges of pain. I feel warm (but my temperature is normal. ranging from 97.9 - 98.8. And at once instance after a shower, 99.6.), and I just feel off. I still haven't noticed any blisters or redness, and no discharge. The only clear symptoms I've experienced so far are the headaches, swollen throat feeling, elevated heart rate, burning penis head, burning urethra, warm feeling body with no temperature, brief chills with shivering, shortness of breath and weird feeling in lungs when breathing. I already know that I have HSV-1 from a previous test but I've never had a cold sore. I also tested negative for HSV-2 about 4 months ago.
My questions are as follows:
1. When someone is infected with HSV-2 (and they already have HSV-1), is a burning penis head and urethra usually the first symptom, BEFORE any blisters appear?
2. Do the flu like symptoms usually begin BEFORE the blisters appear, or after?
3. What are the chances that someone would catch HSV-2 in my situation, with that kind of exposure. Broken condom exposing the top 1/3 of penis for 30 seconds and ejaculation with a Korean massage parlor worker of unknown status. Followed by soap and water, rubbing alcohol and urination. Would the virus easily transmit in this situation?
4. Do my symptoms sound like herpes prodome symptoms?
5. If not herpes, what else do you think would cause these symptoms in such a short amount of time.
6. And finally, do you think I'm likely to start seeing blisters in the next couple of days? And if I don't see any, do you think that it makes herpes unlikely?
Thank you so much for your help. This is the most afraid I've ever been in my life, and just talking about this here gives me a little bit of relief. This is going to be a long 3 months until I can get a blood test. Thanks again!
