Re: Little sores
Hi doc,

If this is Herpes Simplex does that mean that he would have had sex with someone infected in the recent past? We have been in a stabble relationship for more than a year. So you can see that this would be a concern.

I have read that this decease could be a underlying one wich can appear after a couple of years after infection. Contributing to this, he says that it doesn't hurt or itch wich as far as my research goes is one of the most common simptoms.

thanks for your help.

Dear Nicky
No you can infect your genitals from cold sores on the mouth too. The best would be to let your doctor have a look as it is difficult to make a clear-cut diagnosis without seeing the lesion?
