Reoccurring around start of period

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've been getting these clustered bumps on my labia around the start of my period and sometimes while I'm on it. They would be so itchy that I would end up scratching the whole area with my nails. Few years back I got a weird outbreak and went to the ER. Doctor took one look and said it was herpes. He gave me some meds and everything cleared up. But I went to a gyno for STD testing and Hiv testing two years ago and they said I was healthy. So I'm just confused not knowing for sure what makes this thing so persistent.

Probably has happened 4-6 times over 7 years. And mostly on my period. Even had these small cuts on the skin of my clit.

I've been also battling reoccurring MRSA infections and ringworm like things. Mostly on my thighs and arms.

Sounds like herpes doesn't it?

    I think the only way to know is by a blood test. Don't assume the worst. I was told that herpes are so painful you can hardly touch them? I know everyone has different breakouts and reactions. Some never have any and have it.

    What meds did the dr give you that cleared these up the first time?

    Herpes dosnt go away , it's only the same as a cold sore virus. You may get one and then another a year later. I know it's a different virus to a cold sore but the principal is the same. Not sure about the things on your thighs and arms though. Hard to tell without seeing them.
