Tore frenulum, redness, burns while urinating. Is it herps?

Hi, I recently tore my frenulum and it hasn t completely healed. It sometimes burns when I urinate. Today I went to see a doctor and she told me she thinks it s herpes . I honestly don t think I got herpes, but they tested me for it and I m supposed to get the results in a week. She also went ahead and gave me treatment for it. Do you think it actually is herpes, or the doctor is just assuming because of the redness of the frenulum? Perhaps an infection?
