WHAT DOES HERPES FEEL LIKEWhat does herpes feel like? Herpes can easily be mistaken for a skin irritation, razor burn, jock itch, or even a yeast infection. Sometimes herpes symptoms are thought to be the result of tight clothing, heavy sweating, or from allergic reactions to laundry detergent. It is also very easy to assume that because the symptoms do not seem very intense, and because they tend to go away after several days, that it’s not “serious” enough to go to the doctor.  But in reality, these symptoms may represent a herpes outbreak.  So when you notice ANY changes in your genital area or even your partner’s genitals, both of you should make a visit to your doctor immediately.

1) You will want to consult your doctor if you have ANY of the following symptoms: 2) Itching, burning, or tingling in and / or around the genital area 3) Vaginal or penile discharge

4) Aches or pains in and / or around the genital area 5) Burning and/or pain when urinating 6) A rash, bumps, blisters, cuts, or sores in or around the genital area 7) Flu-like symptoms such as headache, fever, and swollen glands


WHAT DOES HERPES FEEL LIKEOnce someone has become infected with the genital herpes, symptoms usually develop within 2 to 20 days, but you can have an outbreak much sooner or later than this.  Remember, the amount of time it takes for symptoms to appear can vary greatly from person to person. So if you have had a number of sexual partners, it may be difficult to figure out when you got it and who gave it to you.
