Agree with Dr. R: What you described suggest herpes infection and it would be prudent to see your doctor to ascertain if you need treatment.
Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
Get HPV and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!
