Pain isn't herpes: Herpes is not a likely cause of these pains. Be careful what you read online about genital herpes. Outbreaks (with obvious, visible blisters/sores) can be preceded by pain, tingling, etc (prodrome), but usually only for 1-3 days in the same area where the outbreak will occur.

Third, 2 days is a bit early -- usually 3-10 days. But see doctor if remain concerned. ...Read more
