Thank you for your message and the photos sent.

Did you have any recent history of sexual exposure ?

These do look like herpes simplex infection scabs.

Since how long do you have them ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did have unprotected sex 2 weeks ago and noticed the scabs 2 days ago
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Yes , so in the incubation period the scabs may have come. I would suggest you to apply Neosporin ointment on the area twice a day for 10 days . You would get it over the counter.

You can take oral prescription of Valacyclovir daily for 7 days in the prescribed dose as this is available as a prescription from the doctor.

It would heal totally.

You can consider doing blood tests for HSV 1 and HSV 2 .
