    hi alex11011,

    your symptoms sound like jock itch, it's not herpes as herpes often accompanies with tingling, burning, itching and painful sores. If you experience the following symptoms, it can be jock itch:

    - redness in the inner thigh

    - rash gets worse with activities or exercise

    - itching like crazy

    - peeling skin in the affected area

    - change in skin color

    - burning sensation in the affected area

    You should visit a dermatologist to check. If it's jock itch, antifungal medications will help you cure it

      Both vaginal yeast infection and genital herpes cause pain and itching in the vaginal area. They also  induce burning and pain when urinating. While a vaginal yeast infection leads to intense itchiness in the entire genital area, itchiness of genital herpes is caused by the sores. Another differences between them is vaginal discharge. If you notice a white, watery, odorless discharge with a cottage cheese-like consistency, it can be a vaginal yeast infection. You should get tested to have the right diagnosis

      Thank you- jenifer13. Itching, burning, and painful when urinating are things that i'm suffering. I also notice some tiny bumps begin to appear in the vagina. Do I have herpes? If yes, it's really terrible for me

      it may be herpes, but to have accurate diagnosis, you should get blood tests. There're millions of people  infected with genital herpes and they still live happily, so you shouldn't be worried. If the test is possitive, antiviral medications may help relieve your symptoms and prevent outbreaks. You can apply prosurx cream or take acyclovir to deal with the symptoms of herpes.
