Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The lesions could probably be a Herpes lesions complicated with bacterial infection , it is then the lesions present with pus and less pain.

Also its very typical to have itching a day or two before development of the lesions.

Do consult a dermatologist and get examined to get confirmed about the diagnosis and plan a treatment .

Meanwhile do apply ACYCLOVIR ointment over the ulcers, this will contain the infection and help in early recovery.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you speedy recovery.

Hi again,

The description of the lesions you mentioned fit well into the diagnosis of herpes.

If you meant a family planning or fertility , then herpes do not have any effect on both.Herpes is a viral infection which is sexually transmitted and treated well with antiviral medications like ACYCLOVIR without much complications.

Wish you speedy recovery.
