I had a promiscuous sexual encounter 7 days ago that could possibly have exposed me to HSV. The day after the encounter, I started experiencing burning, tingling, itching and pain primarily in my groin. The symptoms have been mild but noticable and have continued for 7 days straight.
From what I’ve read, these are common symptoms of a HSV prodrome. However I have also read that prodromes only last about 24 hours before sores appear. I was wondering if anybody has had similar symptoms leading to their first outbreak or if I am wrong to think this could be HSV.
