    Dear ashley,

    It looks like a small fissure from scratching, but looks can be deceptive. If you're worried that it could be herpes, then you should get it swabbed for HSV DNA. For now, treat it as thrush but if the fissure keeps recurring (in the same area) you should certainly get it swabbed.
