What can cause Herpes?

Hi, last night I found a growth on my boyfriend's penis that looks like a mole that has just developed over the past 2 weeks, also, everytime we have have sex my labia becomes grossly edematous afterward. I thought at first that it was just due to the friction, but now with seeing this growth I'm worried that it's herpes. Could it be anything else? he has a history of unprotected sex as well with multiple partners

Hi,

Yes, it can be herpes. If it is multiple then you need to think of papilloma virus infection / syphilis. Share a picture for confirmation.

Since he has history for multiple sex partners. You going for a panel of sexually transmitted infection disease test is advisable. Edema can also be caused due to sperm allergy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S. R. Raveendran, Sexologist
