What are the symptoms for herpes infection ?

I had unprotected sex about 9 days ago and I am terrified of contracting herpes I felt like i had the flu a few days ago had a fever and stomach pains, there were no symptoms down there though. Fever went away but i still have terrible stomach pains and indigestion Im stressing out way too much but when i checked down there i noticed two small red bumps on the outside of my labia, they dont hurt to the touch but they are there and have been there for about a day. They are slighly irritated. If these were herpes sores they would hurt right? Could this just be normal irritation?

Hi,
It may be due to irritation in the vagina or bruises on the part causing infection in the vagina.
but you had unprotected sex before 9 days we should think of STD.
You consult STD specialist and seek his advice.

Hello, I have a question regarding herpes. My partner and I found out that he has herpes virus but no symptoms for the past ten years. The question is I have no symptoms and we have two children together with no symptoms either. Is their any possibility that we could be infected or carrying the virus? How can we be sure?

I got cold sores when I was a child, apparently from kissing my parents. as far as I know they do not have stds. I took a test once, they said I had herpes but that it was very difficult to tell if it was type 1 or 2 so they wouldn t do it. I spent some time with a girl.... who it turned out had type 2... we did not have intercourse, only hand stimulation. I have never had any genital symptoms. but after that encounter I did get some blisters on my finger that sound suspiciously like herpes 2. I asked a doctor about it but had no symptoms at that time for him to examine. he did look at my genitials and said I had no indication of any std. he also said it is very unlikely that I could get herpes on my finger. I have not had any symptoms at all in many years. is it possible that I could infect a woman through intercourse? what should I do about this?

Hello. For the past few days I’ve had complications with my wisdom tooth area. Pain began in my lower wisdom teeth and gradually I started having symptoms of headache and sweats. Afterward I got what seems to be a sore of some short on my tongue, and inner lip. My initial reaction was that I might have the Herpes Simplex but the characteristics weren’t exactly the same as “Fever Blisters” Do you have any thoughts to what my conditions may be?
