I think I have an std. I have only had one partner, my girlfriend of 3 years and she has only been with me. It appears to be a herpes outbreak on my face but I have no other symptoms. This possible?

In brief: Why STD?

Herpes on the face is present in most adults.
Most of them don't know it & have no symptoms. Most common triggers are sun exposure & fevers. Your dr can give you a pill if it is a problem. The creams are a waste of $.

In brief: Herpes

You will probably need to see a physician to determine what you have.
To come to a diagnosis you need the history which you provided but you also need to see the lesion ( the exam ).
