Genital herpes and swollen glands

Hi, I recently had unprotected oral (both receptive and insertive with no ejaculation) and receptive and insertive protected anal sex with a transsexual escort. About 2 weeks later I developed blisters on my penis which looked like herpes based on my research. Around the same time I developed swollen glands in my neck and a mild sore throat. Sore throat went away in about 3 days and the blisters (there were about 10) disappeared a week and a half later. Now I'm 4 weeks from initial encounter and I still have large sensitive swollen glands in my neck and less swollen around my groin. I'm pretty sure my body temperature has been slightly higher than usual for the last 2 weeks also.

Is this normal for having contracted herpes? Or is it likely that the fact I still have swollen glands and don't feel good could be something else?

your doctor will talk to you, look at your symptoms and determine what testing needs done to start figuring out what is going on.
