[Question #4836] Herpes only on Scrotum?

26 months ago
Hi , recently had protected sex within a week span with 2 different girls I noticed 2 days after the last girl I had sex with I had red irritation on my scrotum with slight burning i had really flaky dry white skin and raw tiny lines the skin cracks there was no pus or white fluid just a tiny bit of blood, the last girl I was with had really white cottage cheese fluid coming out of her and I immediately stoped the sex when I noticed it covered my scrotum, I went to the doctors he did and exam and I showed him pictures of what the skin cracks looked like he said he did not think it was herpes and it looked more like a yeast or fungus infection he proscribed me my stain powder and lotrim AF cream , but my mind is worried this could be symptoms of herpes I have read herpes can look like a yeast or jock itch infection? Also is possible to only get herpes on scrotum and no where else my penis has had no irritation of any kind please your help would be greatly appreciated

It sounds exactly like a fungal infection to me as well.  Nothing you have described here sounds at all like a genital herpes infection to me.  It would be extremely unlikely to acquire herpes only on the scrotum.  The skin of the scrotum is quite thick to acquire herpes only in that location.  I don't know anything about your sexual history bu at least THIS does not sound like herpes to me.
