Brief Answer:
Get these tests done

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for the query
It is difficult to pin point a particular problem exactly but possibility can be Herpes infection . The absence of itch or pain broadly rules out bacterial or fungal infections. Please get a HSV Type 1 and 2 IgG and IgM and send the reports.
