Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease. You are always at risk of getting it from your partner. Hence, using a protective contraceptive ensures to avoid it. Most individuals have no or only minimal signs or symptoms from HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection. When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. The only way of ruling it out is by getting yourself tested for genital herpes. For this, you should consult a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
