Suggest treatment for herpes infection and cold sore
Yesterday a couple of bumps popped up on the inside lip of my vagina with white heads. they don't hurt, itch, burn when I urinate. I am currently married and have been with my husband exclusively for 3 years. he did have a cold sore on his mouth last week when we had oral sex. Could herpes type 1 break out again on my genitals or should I be concerned?
Can be Herpes.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The symptoms that you have described are likely to be due to herpes. There can be another break out on genitals. A direct examination is needed to confirm this.
You will have to start with anti viral drugs after getting these prescribed from your gynecologist.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Recurrence in HSV -1 can happen.
Thanks for writing again.
Recurrence of genital herpes can happen due to HSV-1 in 5-7% cases. The chances of a third such episode are even lesser.
Hope my answer is helpful.
