Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
are you there?
I noticed you had difficulty entering chat mode
I can give you an answer and you can reply when you get back on
I am 99% sure this is herpes.
The itching before the blister is classic herpes
I know you have been careful and I'm sorry
But you have contracted genital herpes from your husband
you should be on suppressive therapy like valtrex
Did you see my answer?
Hi. Did you see my reply?
Yes, I'm quite sure unfortunately
a culture of the blisters will confirm the diagnosis
your GP can give it to you
dermatitis wouldn't have blisters
it would just be itching and redness
the blisters and your husband
positive status pretty much clinch the diagnosis
I have seen it with severe cases of poison ivy only
you are referring to pityriasis rosea
That would not cause blisters
I wouldn't recommend it
I'm sure you can but many times these drugs are fake
you're welcome :)
Again, I'm sorry but it is my duty to be honest
would you be so kind as to rate positive for me?
