Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Herpes is causes by HSV virus and transmitted either through oral route or through sexual contact with an infected person.The common symptoms are rash which starts as a cluster of pink, measles-like spots that become vesicles (tiny blisters with discharge), which usually dry up within about 10 days and disappear completely within 1 month.Along with that others could be( if genital ) itching or tingling sensation in the genital area with pain while passing urine.

If through oral route then flu like symptoms may be present.It is difficult to know the exact cause without physical examination and investigations.Kindly visit a Physician earliest for evaluation.

Take care!
