yes, you need go to see a doctor first.but I guess having herpes/HIV/HPV is not the end of the world. One of my friends who's living with genital herpes told me about Positivemate.com. It was created to help people find useful, up-to-date information about prevention and cure for herpes, HPV, HIV..you can ask the live std counselor any time if any question..hope it helps.

Hi,
Genital herpes presents as red papules or vesicles resembling cold sores in the genital area.But usually the incubation period is less like 7-10 days after exposure.To confirm you will need to be examined.
