Thanks for the query.

The swellings that you have described can occur in herpes simplex infection.

As I believe that more information can help a physician help a patient better, I would request you to answer the following questions:
• Did you have a similar problem in the past?
• Does the lesion itch? If yes, how severe is it?
• Do you have any similar lesions on any other part of the body like lips
• Do you have any other known allergies/food/drug sensitivity?
• Do you have fever /sore throat /joint pain /swollen glands in groin /any other symptoms?
• Is it painful?
Any history of sexual intercourse?protected/unprotected?
Any history of similar complaints in your partner?

Please reply to the above questions to help you further.
Photographs of skin lesions (close up, distant and lateral) in good light can be helpful. You can attach the pictures by using the option provided on the right hand side of your dashboard.

Awaiting your response.
