Dear Doctor Kull, what are the early stages of Herpes and what are the symtoms? Do you get like headakes or something like that?
| Response from Mr. Kull
The initial outbreak of genital herpes, sometimes referred to as primary herpes, can involve (in the genital region) blisters, open sores, itching, pain, or burning upon urination. In more severe cases, a person can experience flu-like symptoms (fever, chills, swollen lymph nodes, headache, fatigue). Primary herpes usually occurs approximately two weeks after infection. Most people don't experience any symptoms when infected with herpes.
