HI I was diagnosed with herpes type 2 on march 22nd and my first outbreak was textbook characteristic:Very painful sores that appeared 3-5 days after intercourse that went away after a few days with valtrex. Since then I have been taking lysine and have had a couple of almost outbreaks, but nothings nearly as bad.
About 2 weeks ago, a few days after a sexual encounter I got really itchy in only the pubic region, not labia(which is where I got herpe sores) there were pimple like small bumps all over so I thought I was crabs and bought that cream and it did not help. I went to the doctor and he said it was razor burn and gave me an antibiotic cream- I do shave- and when I insisted it has Never itched like that from shaving he gave me scabies cream. I used the cream and followed directions but The symptoms have gotten worse and now my whole labia and pubic region is extremely itchy and it looks almost like a rash, raised leathery skin that gets more inflamed the more I itch. Small bumps have also started to form on my thighs and lower abdomen. My scalp is also itchy and my armpits and back are starting to but I think I may just be thinking about it too much.
Is this a weird genital herpes outbreak or do I have something else in addition? It is driving me crazy I cant help but itch please help!!!
