I Think i Have Genital Herpes Male What are the Symptoms of the Virus
Genital herpes, or herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2), is a sexually transmitted disease that causes outbreak in the genitals of the men.
Once contracted, the virus remains in the body, in latent until an outbreak is triggered.
HSV-2 is much more common than most people think, about 1 in 5 people are currently carriers of the virus. This shows us that it is really alarming.
The symptoms of male genital herpes will be different from person to person, and many patients will not show any symptoms at all.
Herpes in Males Symptoms
⚫ tingling and itching in the genital area, not only in the penis but the whole area, including anus, crotch.
⚫ Blistering outbreaks in the genital area. These protrusions may be so small that they could be mistaken for simple grains or large blisters the size of a coin.
The blisters often break in such a way that the liquid they possess inside goes out to contaminate other areas of the body.
Hence the importance of taking care of this aspect, trying not to irrigate the liquid from the blisters to other areas of the body to prevent new infections in healthy skin.
⚫ flu-like symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, headache, dizziness and limb pain or tiredness (What doesn't always happen.)
⚫ The lymph nodes that are in the ingle can be affected and are shown to be inflamed.
⚫ Pain or burning during urination
If you are experiencing any of the previous symptoms, it is possible that you may be infected with the virus, as these symptoms are very common when you have genital herpes.
Also, remember that many men have no symptoms at all, so if you know you have had sexual contact with a person infected with HSV-2, I advise you to schedule a checkup and STD test with your doctor.
Don’t run out of hope if you know you have the herpes virus, now and thanks to alternative type treatments men have a chance to go back to living without herpes in the body.
