Hi sorie, Im really sorry that you are hurting so much. There are two types of herpes that affect the genitalia ,as i have understood, genital herpes & herpes simplex & if you had one type & were diagnosed already i think that you could be having a first outbreak of the other type possibly because it happened to a friend. However she was given a maintenance medication called valcyclovir when she was first diagnosed, Do yoi have an anti viral medication? Im so sorry that you are in so much pain. If you dont have any pain relievers & otc analgesics are not working if i were you i would go to the dr, call my dr or go to ER so that i could get the proper medication. I truly hope that it gets under control for you. A healthy immune system, healthy diet, having the blisters/sores open to the air, medications are the only things that help herpes as far as i understand.
