Customer Question

Hi khagihara. Several years ago, I was told that I contracted genital herpes from my husband performing oral sex on me a few days before he developed a cold sore. Swabs for HSV-1 or HSV-2 were never done. My physician just went by the symptoms I described to him. At least every two weeks for the past 6 months, I have white vaginal sloughing....which resembles yeast.....and I have itchy sores. Valtrex does not resolve it. Do you think it could possibly be something other than herpes?

Hello,

genital herpes causes typical blisters, the symptoms you describe don´t point to such an infection. Yeast or another bacterial reason is much more likely, this should be verified by a laboratory smear examination. In this way the presence of herpes viruses can be checked too.

Kind regards,
