Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Please get an STD panel done via your doctor. Based only on description of lesions a diagnosis of herpes cant be established but would require a physical exam first. Yes you should avoid sex till your results are back and you are adequately treated and cured.

wishing you best of health
