Diagnosis needed: A diagnosis will be needed before suspicion settles in. Above description is not enough and it sounds atypical for herpes. There are many other infectious or non infectious conditions that may explain your findings. Would suggest connecting with your Gyn doc for an exam and further recommendations.
