Itching and a bit of a tingling sensation around genitals,

Customer Question
Itching and a bit...

Itching and a bit of a tingling sensation around genitals, and I have a single red bump and I'm terrified it's genital herpes

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

A few weeks.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Was tested a couple months ago and came up negative for HSV2, but had hsv1 because I've had a cold sore at some point. I'm worried I have genital hsv1

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
