Could be many things. You should seek medical treatment and find out what is causing this..

It sounds like herpes type II, not genital herpes (that's type I). It probably got infected with staph that was on your skin when you popped it. Any type of doctor should be able to start you on Valtrex (acyclovir). While you're their ask him about the possibility that you have some sort of immune deficiency, or maybe that you are sick with something else that is making it harder to fight off the herpes.

The homeopathic cure is taking an amino acid called lysine. You might try taking it to prevent attacks and acyclovir to treat active flares. You will have the disease for life and it can reactivate at any time.
