Hi, I started to become really ill 3 days and I've been in bed since with a very bad headache, weakness, sore muscles and a temperature. This morning I woke up and my vagina is covered in genital herpes where it is unbearable to urinate. I got diagnosed with genital herpes 7 years ago ans had to go to the hospital for 3 weeks as a result as it was so serious. Please advise if you think I should go to the hospital.

Can you call please?

Sorry your call offer expired while I was dealing with another customer. I will help you through text.

Yes, you should go to the hospital for this. You are likely to be having a viral fever, this lowered immunity has set off this episode of herpes. You now need to get on Acyclovir or other antiviral drug at the earliest as this will minimize the pain and the lesions. The earlier they are started the better. Hence you should go to the hospital without delay.

Hope this resolves your query. If you need more help, just write back here so l can continue to assist. Stay safe!
