Hello and welcome to HCM,Herpes simplex
infection is characterized by painful, and fluid filled vesicles on the external genitalia.Genital herpes
is caused by herpes simplex virus 2.
Herpes simplex virus type 1 causes oral lesions.
However, herpes simplex type 1 can also cause genital lesions.
Thus, oral sex
can also cause genital lesions.
If you want to confirm or rule out herpes simplex infection, a blood test
for the antibodies
of herpes simplex should be done.
In case it is positive, appropriate treatment should be taken.
Your partner should also be tested for it and if positive, anti-viral treatment should be taken.
Avoid sex with infected partner.
