Herpes? Syphilis?: In sexually active people, herpes is the most common cause of genital ulcer, painful or not. Visual diagnosis is never sufficient; lab testing is always needed both to confirm herpes and learn virus type (HSV1 or 2), which makes a big difference in treatment, prevention, and transmission risk. Painless ulcer could be herpes or syphilis. See your doctor again, get tested for all STDs. Good luck!
