Hello and welcome

Your concern is appreciated

first episode of herpes occurs within first two weeks after virus is transmitted. The classical symptom is sore, vesicle, or ulcer. They may resemble small pilmples or blisters that eventually crust may take two to four weeks to heal during this time other syptoms like fever , swollen glands particularly in groin, flu like symptoms somtes headachr anf painful urination may accompany. Sometimes sypmtoms are so mild that they can be mistaken for insect bites abrasions etc.So yes it can be herpes

Wishing you best of health
