The urethral opening looks normal to me. What symptoms are you still having?
Your symptoms do not sound like herpes. Herpes labialis can spread to the mouth and vice versa. Your symptoms are more consistent with prostatitis.
Possible but unlikely
Yes, this is more likely HSV 2.
Would it be worth getting a culture of these new lesions?- No, because the treatment is the same for both types.
Also, is pain/ tenderness in the pubic bone area a symptom of prostatitis ?- Yes
Yes, in this case, HSV-2 is possible
