Am I suffering from herpes?
Q: I am a 32 years old male with cold sores on my penis. The doctor is not sure if I have herpes as all tests came negative. Am I suffering from herpes? Is it life threatening? Does it spread to other parts of the body?
A:First, you must confirm that you have herpes by doing an ELISA test and cell cytology from the lesion. Secondly, this virus is not deadly but fairly common in India and finally, it will not spread to other parts of your body.
