Detailed Answer:
Hi dear !
Thanks for your query.
There are many causes of genital sores but the common cause are STD.

As I see from your report it doesn't seem as herpes infection.
But if you are sexually active you should check up for STD because with this report I can't exclude any STD.

To relieve pain you can use home remedies tips like Sitz baths 3 to 4 times per day(genital baths with warm water) and over the counter creams containing hydrocortizone.

And you should contact your health care provider if you:

Think you might have a sexually transmitted infection
Have a change in a genital sore
Genital sores does not go away with home care

All the best and take care

Thanks for the advice, ill go see a doctor as soon as possible. The sores are not painful, but when I pee and urine touches it, it stings a little and stops when wiped.
