does herpes cause blood in your urine and can it be confused with urinary tract infection


Well genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease and is caused by Herpes simplex virus 2. The common symptoms seen in it are recognizable small red bumps that may develop into blisters and open lesions. These "bumps" appear at the site of infection, which may be in or around the vaginal area, the cervix, the penis, urinary tract of both men and women, and around the anal opening, buttocks or thighs.Other herpes symptoms in a primary episode may include fever, headache, muscle aches, and swollen glands in the groin area, painful and burning urination and blood in urine or vaginal discharge. Thus, sometimes the symptoms can be confused with urinary tract infections.

So you should be visiting your doctor for further evaluation.

Hopefully this was helpfull enough and do ask for further assisstance
