I think I have herpes but not shore. I get pain in my genitals every two weeks that last for about three days. The pain is only at night. It's so painful that I can't sleep. The doctor didn't think I had herpes because their were no sores on my genitals. I do have sores on the corners of my mouth thats been there a couple of months. Does this sound like herpes? I also been worried alot about hiv. My ex-girlfriend and I both have a coated white tongue. I had unprotected sex with her before she told me she slepted with 80 guys. I tested neg for HIV three and a half months after exposer. I am really worried about this coated tongue. I am lost and don't know where to go. please help. This is the only girl I've been with.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Given the negative HIV test at 3 1/2 months it is unlikely these symptoms are related to HIV infection. The genital pain sounds nonspecific and probably not herpes. Same with the mouth sores. MH

HIV or Epstein Barr - follow-up
