Hello,

Form the details it looks like you have got herpes infection, which has been transmitted to your wife as well.

Acyclovir cream should be applied five times per day for four days, and penciclovir cream should be applied every two hours while awake for four days. If you have excessive pain,then take tab.Ibuprofen 400 mg twice a day.For itching you can try oral antihistaminics like cetirizine. Exact diagnosis can only be made after clinical examination.

Do consider to see your doctor for this.It's common issue and doctor won't make you feel uncomfortable.

Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Treatment of genital herpes does not cure the disease. The virus usually lives in an infected person throughout their lifetime. Most people with genital herpes will have recurring outbreaks.So we can only prevent (to some extent) or reduce severity of outbreaks.

I don't think it would be possible for us to XXXXXXX for a clinical examination.Please consider seeing your doctor.Don't worry, herpes is very common and doctor won't embarrass you.

Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
