Jock Itch Or Herpes
Do herpes outbreaks always blister? Is it possible to have burning and itching from jock itch and after scratching scabs form?

I got a handjob from a girl with herpes. My anus itches and was wondering if i could have got herpes from a handjob or could it be from something else?
Slow Down: Anus itching is not in any way a symptom of herpes. First, congratulation on having a sexual encounter. Second, what is the real problem here?
