I am sorry for your symptoms.
Yes, this sounds like genital herpes please.
I am sorry for this.
Herpes is an infection that can cause blisters and open sores on the genital area. Herpes is caused by a virus that is passed from person to person during vaginal, oral, or anal sex. Sometimes, people do not know they have herpes because they do not have any symptoms.
Herpes cannot be cured. But the disease usually causes most problems during the first few years. After that, the virus is still there, but it causes few to no symptoms. Even when the virus is active, people with herpes can take medicines to reduce and help prevent symptoms.
Some people with herpes never have any symptoms. But other people can develop symptoms within a few weeks of being infected with the herpes virus.
Symptoms usually include blisters in the genital area. In women, this area includes the vagina, butt, anus, or thighs. In men, this area includes the penis, scrotum, anus, butt, or thighs. The blisters can become painful open sores, which then crust over as they heal.
Sometimes, people can have other symptoms that include:
●Blisters on the mouth or lips
●Fever, headache, or pain in the joints
In people with herpes, symptoms usually go away and come back. A return of symptoms is called an "outbreak." Outbreaks usually include blisters and open sores in the genital area. In most people, the first outbreak is the worst and can last as long as 2 to 3 weeks. Sometimes, people can tell when an outbreak will occur, because they feel itching or pain beforehand. Whatever your pattern is, keep in mind that herpes outbreaks usually become less frequent over time as you get older.
The medicines work best when people start them soon after an outbreak starts.
Choice of treatments -
Acyclovir - 800 mg three times daily for two days; or 800 mg twice daily for five days; or 400 mg three times daily for five days.
Famciclovir - 1000 mg twice daily for a single-day duration; or 125 mg twice daily for five days; or 500 mg once, followed by 250 mg twice daily for two days.
Valacyclovir - 500 mg twice daily for three days or 1000 mg once daily for five days.
To reduce the pain during an outbreak, you can, use a "Sitz bath" where you can sit in warm water for about 20 minutes. Your bathtub could also work.
Add ½ to 1 tablespoon (5 mL to 15 mL) of baking soda or 1 to 2 teaspoons (5 mL to 10 mL) of salt to the water in the plastic sitz bath. Swirl the water until the baking soda or salt dissolves. Carefully sit down in the plastic sitz bath and soak your bottom area for 10 to 15 minutes.
Avoid bubble baths. Keep the genital area clean and dry, and avoid tight clothes. Take over-the-counter pain medicine such as Tylenol or Advil.
But avoid Aspirin.
