hi dear as u used those pads for first time there is a high chance that it is an allergic reaction. herpes usually starts with an itch or discomfort and the lesion remain for few days, so dont worry its just a rash. it ll subside on its own just dont use those pads again. if there is itching u can use a mild steroid cream like desonide. thank u
