Let me begin by answering your last question first. I am not in favour of long term suppressive therapy for Herpes
virus infections & dont find the recurrence & reactivation rates greatly affected in practice. I advocate short courses of oral antivirals on occurence or just on the premonition that the next episode is due & that helps greatly in my practice.
The lesion in the groin could indeed be a fungal infection
or jock itch
& unrelated but for this to be certain, one will require a visual image at least &/or tests.
Do let me know how you fare & wish you good health & please do practice safe sex
in your life. Do also treat your partners'
