So I need some help as I’m at a loss. So a few months ago I was having unprotected with a guy I was dating , having been told by him he had been tested and was clean (as was I). Anyways fast forward a few months after we aren’t seeing each other anymore, I had some weird symptoms. Extreme itch down below, red rash and some bumps. Went to my gp, told her my sexual history, she said it wasn’t an std. anyways it eventually went away, but then came back. Went back to my gp who again said it wasn’t an STD but booked me into the sexual health clinic anyway. So I went to the sexual health clinic whilst symptoms were present (but not as bad this time, just rash and extreme itch and soreness), and the sexual health dr said she thought it was eczema and prescribed some moisturising cream. This cream did help a bit but the issue returned this year. So I went for a full screening and told the GUM dr I thought this could be hsv2, she said it didn’t look like it was but said I was positive for thrush (came back negative for everything else) and treated me for thrush and sure enough it all cleared up. Anyways the issue has reappeared a couple months later and I’m just not convinced that this isn’t hsv2 anymore. Could all these drs be this wrong? I’m so distressed as I just want answers. It doesn’t necessarily look like classic pictures of hsv2 but it keeps returning as this red itchy rash. Any advice on what to do would be great!
