hello,

Tanks for the query,



Your symptoms of ulcer which is painful suggests herpes infection.



Genital herpes affects the skin or mucous membranes of the genitals. It caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). HSV is spread from one person to another during sexual contact.



It is possible to have more than one sexually transmitted infection at the same time, so it is advisable to have a full check-up.



Get a STD work up done.



Genital herpes cannot be cured. However, antiviral medication can relieve pain and discomfort during an outbreak by healing the sores more quickly. These drugs appear to help during first attacks more than they do in later outbreaks. Medicines used to treat herpes include acyclovir, famciclovir, and valacyclovir.



Hope this helps.



regards,

Dr Nilofer
