Confused about Herpes

Dear Dr. Tom:

I hope you can answer my questions today.
I never thought I had herpes Until now. My girlfriend gets bladder
infections when we have sex, so I looked everything up on the internet.
Then, I carefully examined my penis the last month and noticed strange
things. I never get pain from anything but I noticed the rough area
on the head sometimes goes RED and a few of the (head of the pin sized)
rough areas slightly enlarge. It does not look like any thing foreign
but the regular skin enlarging slightly. Then after a few days I can
see very very small yellowish white flakes easily wiped off. Is this
herpes or regular skin shedding? No pain, no tingling. I’m confused
and need help now.

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Male Concerned About Having Herpes:

You and your girlfriend should be examined
by a doctor either together or singly. Some females have been suspected
of having a urinary tract infection and have been diagnosed as HSV
infected instead. Likewise, peculiar sensations or disturbances of
your penis could be herpes, or there are several other conditions including
some other sexually transmitted diseases. A professional will help
diagnose your condition and relieve your anxious anticipation. A gynecologist
is possibly already caring for your girlfriend, and either your family
practitioner or a dermatologist would be advantageous to you.
