can herpes present as an anal fissure. I had exposure from recieving oral sex and now I have an anal fissure and a tender spot on my left vagina for 12 days. Does this sound like herpes? I also have a shooting pain in the L buttock, but no blisters.
Hey, you should get a blood test for herpes. I have gHSV2 and I get anal fisures as well. I'm not sure which one came first, but they seem and feel connected to me. I've never had anal sex either. You can get it anally from vaginal exposure, but not from oral exposure, so if that was your only exposure than you have a really good chance of testing negative. For me the way I can tell if its H is that the fissure is preceded by pain or itching, whereas sometimes I get the fissure with no warning from a tough BM. Hope this helps someone. Does anyone else suffer with both these conditions. I dont know how to treat it, since Im not super clear on what is causing what.
