hello and thanks for consulting just answer
The most likely causes of painful genital ulcers are herpes simplex, chancroid, and syphilis.All patients with genital ulcers thought to be from an STD should be tested for syphilis herpes and other STDs,regardless of the risk factors.
you need evaluation for these ulcers,and need culture of the lesions(to look rule out herpes infection)and florescent antibody test.VDRL or RPR test for syphilis and HIV screening should also be done.
you immediately need to consult a doctor and need examination in person fir evaluation of these ulcers.

thanks for your input
well if your doctor has successfully ruled out STDs,then i would recommend you to see a dermatologist as various skin conditions like lichen planus,pemphigoid vulgaris,scabies,and non specific vaginitis can also cause genital ulcers.i hope visit to a dermatologist will help you,
