Details matter: Hsv 1 on face??? or genital? How do you know the source? Was it cultured? Treated? Now you have something else not related to hsv. A clue is "after the sex"........what kind of sex? Condom? Lubricant or other material used by either participant? Since it appears only after sex it is not related to foreskin. Consider an irritation or allergy related to something used during sex or used by another p
