In brief: Most likely Herpetic

Most likely herpetic, and if so, it can be serolgically conformed and serotyped between type 1 or 2.
Valtrex (valacyclovir) and famcyclovir are good options. Herpes virus highly contagious and is excreted orally or vaginally 30% of the time when lesions not present. The drugs, including generic Acyclovir 800 bid, can keep lesions at bay.
