Hygiene: This is about your personal hygiene habits. That would be the most common reason for this problem. Wiping the anus after a bowel moment away from the urethra; bathing regularly; wearing clothes once and only after washing them.

Herpes is six to twelve weeks after exposure, if there is a sore. But, 90% of those infected with herpes do not get outbreaks or sores. Hepatitis A, B, and C do not show symptoms in the throat. Scabies is not an infection of the throat.
