Question: does genital herpes cause pain or burning while urinating
does genital herpes cause pain in penus scrotum
no visible sores or blisters

does genital herpes hurt only if there is blisters
for instance if a person is having genital herpes without any physical symptoms. is it possible that person get painful urination due to herpes

I mean the reason why there will be pain during will be only if there is blisters inside genital which cannot be seen

does genital herpes affect kidney or is there any complications other than the fact it will create painful blisters

Brief Answer:
This doesn't look like HSV-2.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

HSV 2 cannot cause pain during urination if there are no blisters. It cannot affect the kidney and cause complications.

You should know that HSV2 can cause cracked, raw, or red areas around the genitals with or without pain, itching, or tingling around your genitals or your anal region and blisters that break and cause painful sores.

In this situation, the pain is caused by urine passing over the sores.

I think that your situation is not related to HSV2.

I hope my answer helps you. Feel free to ask further.

Regards.

great. so the pain in urination can be due herpes if and only if there are painful sores and urine pass on them. what are the possibility that the sore can be inside penus or vagina which cannot be seen. can herpes occur inside genitals or it just don't happen and it occurs only outside genitals.
and the random pain in penus or scrotum is possible if there are sores present.if no sores no blisters in that case the pain in penus and scrotum is not caused by hsv2?

Brief Answer:
There may be a possibility that sores could be inside the penis.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

Pain during urination in genital herpes is when the urine pass on sores that could be inside urinary tract (urethra).

A possibility may be there that the sores could be inside the vagina or penis but I don't know the exact percentage.

Usually, if there aren't sores but just pain, it couldn't be genital herpes.

I hope my answer helps you.

Regards.

if there is sore inside urethra. it will cause every pain when we urinate
but in my case only sometimes only I get pain or burning sensation while urinating. which means I may not be having sores inside urthera.
so considering what you say I won't have herpes??

Hello,

Thank you writing back.

I have seen carefully the picture and I think that this doesn't look like a genital herpes.

But, just to be sure and to define better the diagnosis I suggest to do HSV IgG.

I hope my answer helps you.
