Ok, so I had a cold sore and I didnt kiss my boyfriend or any contact with him sexually. We waited untill the cold sore was away. First it had a little scab and then it came off just like when I've had a cold sore before. Then we waited longer so it can heal up even more. After a weak after all that happend I kissed him and have him a blow job. We were trying to be super careful and wait untill my cold sore is off my lip. I still had a scar on my lip still from the cold sore, but there was no little puss buble or any of that stuff. It was completly gone, except for the litthe scar. I know that a cold sore scar takes forever to heal. I've had it now STILL for like 3 weeks now, its not hurthing, its just like an acne scar, after you get a bad pimple.
After a few weeks my boyfriend has been scared because his penis has been itching and he sees little bumps. They dont look bad or anything... theyre just little bumps. Hes going to go get checked still, but for now what can you all tell me? I'm so worried, because we were trying to be careful!!!!!!!
Could it be herpes on him?!?!?!?!

If your boyfriend is having itching and a rash, he should definitely go get it checked out. Regardless of whether it's a STI it's always good to get checked out when there are changes in the body.

Herpes is most often transmitted when there is an open sore, so you were definitely right to wait until it closed up. Unfortunately, herpes can be transmitted at other times too. It's tricky like that.

Have you been tested yourself for both herpes viruses (hsv I and hsv II) and other STIs?

Here's an article to read that will give you more info about herpes. While it's okay to worry, the best thing to do is for your boyfriend to see a medical professional as soon as possible.

It could be irritation from shaving, or from a new laundry detergent, or one of any number of other things, but any kind of bumps or irritation on the genitals should be checked out by a healthcare professional.
