See doctor to clear: There are several things that can cause this, and it would be worth seeing a doctor while the sores are present. If you have ever had sex, even if its been a while, a viral cause such as herpes is possible. If not, other causes can be staph infections, fungal infections such as jock itch, or cyst problems like hydradenitis. Staph infections can get bad quickly and need antibiotics, so see a doc! ...Read more

Intertrigo: Intertrigo (intertriginous dermatitis) is an inflammatory condition of skin folds, induced or aggravated by heat, moisture, maceration, friction, and lack of air circulation.

Sometimes the discharge isn’t apparent. Use of antibiotics can sometimes lead to yeast infections. Let your doctor know about your symptoms. ...Read more

Probably no: If you have no lesions, you probably are not shedding. However, because you have a history of the virus you may never know for sure that there is no viral shedding. As a result, you must always practice safe sex ...Read more

Brief sex 4 days ago. Today saw one painless large olive sized lymph node on left groin. No other symptoms or sores noticed. Is this herpes? Or what?

Not herpes: Almost certainly not herpes. There is no STD or other infection likely to cause lymph node enlargement in 4 days, especially without other symptoms like sores or irritation. The new lump in your groin -- whether really a lymph node or something else -- probably has nothing to do with the sexual event 4 days earlier. See a doctor if it persists, if any other symptoms, or you remain concerned. ...Read more
