Tiny pimples, itching in the genital area is genital herpes?
I have been having small red, itchy pimples on my small lips for 2-3 months now. I went to the doctor and the doctor said I have genital herpes. The doctor gave me medication and Avircrem topical, but the condition was still the same, the acne still did not disappear. I have learned that genital herpes will disappear in 1-2 weeks, but I am still the same 3 months later. The doctor asked me if the tiny, itchy rash in the genital area is genital herpes? Please advise me on my health condition, thank you doctor.
