Welcome to ehealthforum,
Increase in stress levels are known to trigger Herpes outbreak. If the symptoms have been worsening or if you have been developing new symptoms, you should not ignore them. Visit your doctor/urologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the exact underlying cause (and to confirm if the outbreak is the cause for the recent new symptoms). Get started on treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) to help you control the symptoms and heal the tears. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/urologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
