Want to ask, from my history and my partner has never had sexual intercourse with anyone. Why do I get herpes when sex during miss p and miss v is not included. Please explain
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It should be clarified before, how did you find out that you have genital herpes? Do you have any complaints? Has the complaint been seen by a doctor and diagnosed as genital herpes?
Genital herpes is caused by a Herpes simplex virus infection (HSV). This infection can be transmitted through sexual activity, not only involving penetration of the penis into the vagina, but even by skin-to-skin contact. Usually, after being infected with HSV, clinical symptoms do not appear immediately, but it takes about 2 to 12 weeks after the virus first enters the body. Symptoms that appear can include pain or itching around the genitals, the appearance of watery rashes that are red or whitish in color, the appearance of painful ulcers (ulcers), especially when urinating, to crusts that form after a watery rash and the ulcer breaks and then dries up. Not only that, other symptoms are often encountered, such as swollen lymph nodes in the groin, dizziness, headaches, fever, muscle and joint pain, and so on.
However, you also need to know that the clinical symptoms that arise due to genital herpes can often be very similar to clinical symptoms caused by other conditions, for example syphilis, cutaneous candidiasis, herpes zoster, Bahcet's syndrome, chancroid, scabies, folliculitis, pearly penile papule, allergic contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, irritant contact dermatitis, and so on. Therefore, if you have never seen a doctor, you should not make any premature conclusions.
If you have symptoms similar to genital herpes, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or skin and genital specialist to be sure what causes the complaint. By doctors, the diagnosis of genital herpes is often quite upheld by ordinary physical examination. However, if it is deemed necessary, the doctor may also recommend a supporting examination, such as taking tissue from the genital skin that is experiencing complaints, DNA PCR tests, blood tests, and so on. When a genital herpes diagnosis has been made for your complaint, the treatment can later be done by administering antiviral drugs and various other types of drugs tailored to the complaints that arise.
In the meantime, we recommend that you always keep your genitals clean, including by cleaning them properly when you shower and after going to the bathroom, not engaging in risky sexual activities, and always wearing clean pants and underwear.
Hope this helps ...
