The greatest concern is herpes, if indeed you had a genital ulcer, even if "mild" (by which I assume you mean small, painless, brief, etc). I suggest you stop trying to figure it out online and see a doctor or clinic experienced in STDs and sexual health. ...Read more

Syphilis? Herpes?: The most common causes of genital ulcer are herpes and syphilis, especially if sexually active at the time. If a single painless ulcer, syphilis is the main concern.

But SEE YOUR DOCTOR, and stop smoking!!!!! ...Read more
