Hello and welcome to HealthcareMagic!
The classical sign and symptoms of herpes are painful vesicles. Vesicles are tiny rashes containing a transparent fluid. They usually start small and then increase in number. This seems like what you are describing. If this is so, I will advise you to see a doctor immediately. Firstly, you need to test for other sexually transmissible infections like hepatitis B
, syphilis, HIV and chlamydia. Secondly, you need to start treatment with the antiviral Acyclovir and a strong analgesic
(Tramadol). It is important to start a corticosteroid (Prednisolone
) to prevent postherpetic neuralgia
and an antibiotics therapy (Amoxicillin
) to prevent infections in case you have an ulcer.
Hope that clarifies you concern. Thank you for the query.
