A common sexually transmitted infection marked by genital pain and sores. Caused by the herpes simplex virus, the disease can affect both men and women. Pain, itching and small sores appear first. They form ulcers and scabs. After initial infection, genital herpes lies dormant in the body. Symptoms can recur for years. Antiviral drugs may help speed up the healing time of your sores and reduce pain. DD. Fungal Balanoposthitis

Thank you sir. I had the same dd on my mind and a doubt whether to use mild topical steroid with antifungal or not .
