How does this affect me-1

A:   Thank you for your question. Without taking a sample swabbed from this suspected area that may be caused by herpes, it will be difficult to determine if you indeed have this virus, just on visual examination alone.

Please return to your doctor for a more thorough examination along with testing. If diagnosed with herpes, you will be a carrier for life and can potentially spread this to other persons. Your ability to have children will not be affected by this. Please follow up with your doctor.

Thank you for consulting
