Herpes?

My boyfriend has herpes and I'm thinking that I may have gotten it.
The lymph nodes in my groin are swollen, I have been feeling nauseated w/ a temperature of 98.9 and I have a few bumps down there. These symptoms starting appearing about three days ago. I am going to get an appointment with a doctor but it will probably be a few weeks till that happens so I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or if they think that this could be something else.

Hi,
How are you? Were you able to have the symptoms checked by your doctor? Most individuals infected with  herpes virus , HSV-1 or HSV-2,  experience either no symptoms or have very mild symptoms. Blisters on or around the genitals, as well as  flu-like symptoms such as fever, body aches and swollen glands may be observed. To rule this out, direct clinical examination of the skin lesion as well as blood tests may be done. Take care and hope all is well. Do keep us posted and best regards.
