i agree that your symptoms sound concerning for genital herpes, yes.
Herpes can be transmitted via oral sex, and then it would likely be HSV 1 genitally, which is really quite a different disease than genital HSV 2 - less likely to be transmitted, less likely to shed virus without symptoms.
I would encourage you to IMMEDIATELY go and get this swab tested, preferably with a PCR rather than culture. Although there is no medical urgency to this problem, if you wait to have it swab tested, it may not be accurate.
Have you ever in your life had a cold sore on your lip?
Thanks so much, Terri. I went to my doctor and he took a swab and took a blood sample. He is going to run a full STD blood screening. On viewing the wound he also doubts it is Herpes and thinks it is probably a mild abrasion. I will wait for the results. Since then the wound has healed over, without leaving a crust or scab and is almost invisible now. My fingers are crossed. It's weird how I work myself up, time and again. I think it's a manifestation of guilt, regret and self-loathing.
If the lesion is that healed over, a swab test may not give you accurate results. And a blood test, if taken too soon, can be inaccurate.
