I am suffering from severe vulvovaginitis throughout this year. My doctor says me that my genital ulcers look likes herpes simplex. And prescribed me antiviral. But my herpes test is negative after one year of exposure. My partner has herpes simplex positive. But I have not made relations with him from past 1 year and tested all std include herpes negative. My doctor tells that I have herpes simplex lesions now. But I have negative report for herpes. I have now sore throat and nausea. Should I take antivirals for herpes or not.

Both viruses are spread through direct contact with an infected person, and cause sores on the body. HSV-1 typically causes cold sores and blisters around the mouth area, while HSV-2 causes outbreaks in the genital area. However, HSV-1 can also cause outbreaks in the genital area, and HSV-2 can cause blisters around the mouth area.
