Brief Answer:
You do not have Herpes

Detailed Answer:

Be rest assured that you do not have Herpes. Neither do you have any other STIs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases).

I am currently working in this area and have been doing a lot of research on Herpes and other STIs. In my opinion, you do not have it.

Please relax; the tingling sensation is due to anxiety and stress. Continue to take Lysine.

For the dry lips, apply Vaseline lip jelly every 2 to 3 hrs. You should be fine soon. Drink plenty of water and fluids.

Take care to have protected intercourse the next time.

Wish you good health.
