Expert Q & A Answers About herpes risk factors

I know I was exposed to the herpes virus. When should I get tested?

I was exposed to herpes, got tested and found out that I’m negative for the virus. Should I get tested again to be sure I am not infected? In the meantime, can I still have sexual contact?

Am I at risk for herpes after visiting a massage parlor and having a “happy ending”?

About two weeks ago, I went to a massage parlor where I got a massage that finished with a “happy ending” (hand job). The outside of my anus was slightly massaged with a finger and my mouth was on her breast. I also caressed between her legs outside her pants. Now I’m worried about STDs because I noticed a round, scaly dry sore on the inside of my bicep and I’ve been experiencing flu-like symptoms. Also, the tip of my penis is slightly red and the top of my testicles has a red blotch. I’ve already been tested for herpes and am awaiting the results. How at risk am I for herpes?
