Hello, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Genital herpes is an infectious disease of the skin caused by the herpes simplex virus or HSV, which causes symptoms of water-filled blisters, genitals, lips and anus. This disease is generally transmitted through sexual contact or skin touch, can not be transmitted through objects, because this virus can not survive long outside the skin. And generally experienced by someone who is sexually active. If you have never had sexual intercourse in any form, other possible skin diseases that you experience are:
Eczema or atopic dermatitis, an infectious skin disease that causes itching and thickening of the skin Scabies or scabies, is an infectious skin disease caused by lice or mites Infectious diseases caused by fungi or candidiasis You should re-examine your condition to a dermatologist and venereal specialist, to make sure you have genital herpes or not, the doctor will examine a sample of the skin on your genitals, and if it is positive for genital herpes, the doctor will give anti-viral therapy to prevent wider spread, HSV treatment cannot cure HSV infection, but only controls the symptoms arise. When the symptoms go away, HSV can stay in the body and can become active again in the future when your immune system is weak, so you must complete treatment.
