Genital Herpes is a virus that is sexually transmitted and very common. About 20% of the US adult population has the infection, but many people have no symptoms and don’t know they have it. Genital herpes can be diagnosed with simple testing, and while there is effective treatment, there is no known cure for the disease.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of genital herpes?
Many people will have no symptoms of genital herpes which is why it often goes undiagnosed by doctors. Those who do experience symptoms may have an initial outbreak 2-4 weeks after exposure with painful sores and blisters over their genital region. The symptoms will improve slowly over a few weeks. Then, the disease may return at any time with repeated sores and blisters in a milder outbreak. Outbreaks can be brought on by different things such as stress and happen in different stages, symptoms will vary from stage to stage.
How long does a genital herpes outbreak last?
A herpes outbreak typically lasts 2-4 weeks from the onset of infection to being completely healed. That said, there are different stages within an outbreak that will vary for each individual. It is common to have multiple herpes outbreaks, but the first is usually the worst.
What are the genital herpes stages?
Stage 1: Prodrome – This stage is highly contagious. Pain, tingling or itching may begin as HSV-2 activates inside the skin.
Stage 2: Skin Redness – The skin may turn red and become sensitive. This lasts 1-4 days.
Stage 3: Lesion Formation – Lesions and sores will begin to appear around the anus or genitals. They will fill with fluid and may become very painful. The sores will last for 2-6 days.
Stage 4: Development of Lesions – This stage is the most contagious. The lesions or sores will continue to grow and eventually burst, releasing the buildup of fluid. The sore may stay open and runny for 1-4 days.
Stage 5: Scabbing – After the fluid drains from the sores, they will dry out and scab for a few days.
Stage 6: Healing – The sores heal when the scabs fall off. Sometimes, a scab doesn’t develop, and the sores will just fade away. This process takes about 3-7 days.
What Does a Herpes Outbreak Feel Like?
As mentioned above, the onset of a herpes outbreak is often associated with tingling, itching, or burning around the affected area. Blisters and ulcers are unfortunately painful and can cause discomfort. You can get antiviral medication prescribed to reduce the symptoms of an outbreak and begin healing faster.
How Do You Get Rid of a Herpes Outbreak Fast?
The fastest way to get rid of herpes is to take prescription-strength anti-viral medication, such as Valacyclovir. Luckily you can get this prescribed in as little as 15 minutes using an online doctor. The board-certified physicians here at PlushCare can diagnose and treat your condition all from the comfort of your home. Get treated here.
What can be mistaken for herpes? Can herpes be just one bump?
Common conditions easily mistaken for herpes include yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, syphilis, urinary tract infection, and common acne. Herpes may present as one single sore, though it is most commonly a small patch of red or white bumps around the mouth or genitals.
What are the top treatments for genital herpes?
The most common prescriptions for herpes are: Acyclovir (Zovirax), Famciclovir (Famvir), Valacyclovir (Valtrex). In addition to prescription medication, at-home treatments and over-the-counter medications can be used to help with genital herpes symptoms. These include: Painkillers (e.g. acetaminophen, aspirin, ibuprofen), icing the area(s) that are affected (or using a cold compress), getting sufficient rest, air circulation (wearing loose-fitting clothes to aid genital outbreaks), rinsing with warm saltwater.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor.
He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins.
Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day.
I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
