Yes: Need to make sure this is not Herpes Infection, which can be treated effectively and you do not have to remain uncomfortable. There are 2 different types of herpes Infection I am concerned about. It may not be infection at all and it can be allergic reaction to something or Dermatitis. All in all you need examination.
