Answer

In females, genital lesions commonly appear in the labial folds but can also be found in the vulva and vagina. In males, they are usually scrotal in nature but can also develop in the perianal region and penile shaft. Epididymitis manifests as scrotal tenderness.

Genital ulcers last longer than oral lesions, are deeper, and typically scar after healing.
