My doctor said it was just straia that everyone had in the area between their genitals and
didn't think it was herpes. He did not swab the cracks in the skin. He did put me on Acyclovir for 10 days as a precaution.
For the last 3 months I've had tingling, itching, prickly feelings in that area, and on my scrotum, and penis as well. I've seen 5 doctors, all who have said it doesn't look like herpes.
