Genital Herpes: If it is genital herpes, the infection is for life. When it is active, don't have sex. This is when it is most contageous. If it was something else, quite possible because herpes usually lasts longer than 3 days, have it looked at by youe dermatologist or other doc.

7-10 days: Wow you are a fast healer. Maybe it was not canker sores. As they do not clinically present as bumps.
