Possible: Did your sexual partner have herpes? If so, the symptoms you now have could be related. Local pain ; itching, plus fever, headache, malaise, myalgias, and tender lymph nodes are more usual than "tingling." average incubation period after exposure is four days, but ranges from two to twelve days. See your doctor -- viral cultures can be done on any visible sores.

Herpies: You need to get tested for viral count. Doe both hsv1 and hsv-2. Hsv-2 is the genital form. Both hsv-1 can also cause the symptoms.
