Both fungal and viral infection can take time to resolve and it may be either of these the way you have explained. Also chronic infection status of herpes simplex can be checked from blood tests by checking antibodies. The risk of transmission of viral is higher with fellatio but you should have manifested symptoms much earlier in that case. Please take a second opinion from another dermatologist or a Urologist.
