Genital herpes is a viral infection of the skin in the genital area which is generally transmitted through sexual contact, either oral, anal or vaginal. The virus that causes it is called the herpes simplex virus or HSV, of which there are two types, namely HSV type 1 and HSV type 2. The majority of genital herpes is caused by HSV type 2, although it can also be caused by HSV type 1.
Symptoms of genital herpes can include painful sores, blisters and itching accompanied by flu-like complaints and other complaints such as back pain, urinary pain or sexual intercourse. The doctor will prescribe an antiviral such as acyclovir to reduce viral multiplying activity along with wound care.
However, in general, the complaints you experience are still possible for you to suffer from other viral infections or bacterial infections. for that it would be better if you check with another dermatologist to ask for a second opinion regarding your condition.
so hopefully useful
