How Do I Know if What I Have is Herpes?
Genital herpes can be mistaken for many different conditions and should always be diagnosed professionally.
If you suspect that you have herpes, but have not had your condition diagnosed, it is important that you visit your health care provider for a professional herpes test.
People too often presume that they have a particular condition without getting a diagnosis. This is very risky as not only can herpes symptoms appear differently in each person, but herpes can also be confused with many other skin infections too.
It is important to have any unusual symptoms diagnosed properly in order to protect both your health and that of your partners. A professional diagnosis allows you to get the very best guidance, treatment and support for whatever the condition may be.
If you have possible symptoms of any STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) it is important that you visit a health care provider as soon as possible.
