User avatar The sore very well could be genital herpes, and since you have been exposed to STD, I recommend you get a full panel done, which includes syphillis. Syphillis often does not have symptoms until years later, and it is serious and deadly then.

The abdominal pain and fainting are worrisome; I recommend you see a doctor.
