Im extremely worried at the moment. I recently had unprotected sex 3 weeks ago with a girl. The following week she got in contact with me and stated she was in a bit of pain down there and asked me to get an STI screening which I immediately did. The reason i did so is because I had been travelling for a few months before hand and had had unprotected sex with a few girls thus thinking I must have caught something. At the time i knew it was stupid of me to so do but I never expereinced any problems or any symptons so I presumed I was fine. i have been home for approx. 2 and a half months now and as i just stated had unprotected sex with this girl 3 weeks ago.She is the ONLY girl i have had sex with since returning home. My test results came back today and they were all completely negative which i was delighted about.
However in the past week or so i have experienced some symptons which i think is Herpes. I firstly noticed a small swelling in one of my groin glands and very soon after i developed tiny red spots on my outer thigh (the same side as the swelling). These have now developped into 4 full blown blisters are are EXTREMELY painful.They are raised and quite red. I also have a few bumps on my lower spine.These are more itchy and not painful but I have read that Herpes lies dormant in the bottom of the spine and causes swollen glands which are then followed by blisters. Unfortunately for myself I was not tested for Herpes during the STI screening as im aware it can only be tested when blisters are visible. i had none at the time.
I have not had any flu symptons, it does hurt when i urinate and i have no sores or blisters whatsoever on my genatilia or in and around my mouth. Is this herpes?Can anyone tell me?And if it is I presume I got it from this girl rather than while i was away. It just seems a little coincidental that these symptoms have arisen so quickly after being with her when all through the summer while i was travelling i was fine.

Any comments are appreciated.
