i still have a rash, please help!

I posted a few days ago about some symptoms i've been having. Last Saturday i started having terrible itching, swelling, and burning down there. I also had the cottage cheese like discharge that goes along with a yeast infection. I've had this discharge before but never so much or to the point it caused this severe symptoms, so i didn't know it was a yeast infection. I started researching the symptoms and found out that birth control can cause yeast infections and i realized that i started getting them about a year ago right when i started birth control.
Anyways, i had sex about a week and a half ago and i was really sore the next day. The condom broke so i'm afraid i may have herpes instead of yeast. A couple days later i started having the burning itching swelling and the discharge got much worse and painful. I went to the doctor and she told me it was a yeast infection and gave me Monostat. The pain and swelling seemed to go away in about two or three days, but at the same time i noticed what i'm afraid are herpes blisters. The only thing is they aren't painful and only two or three of the six or seven are even raised. Most are flat and redish, and the ones that are raised don't seem to look like the pictures i've seen. They are more skin colored than red and though i've had them for a week, none of them have broken or scabbed over. But what else could they be besides herpes?? I have another appointment with my doctor on tuesday but i would really appriciate any help anyone can give me. Please help!

Re: i still have a rash, please help!

All you can really do is get a swab or blood test. I don't get typical herpes symptoms unless I have an outbreak on my butt, and I'm having my second one right now. When I have other outbreaks my doctor thought it was a yeast infection. The skin gets raw, but no blisters or sores and sometimes I have severe pain during urination. It's confusing, but now that I've been diagnosed (I had swabs and wasn't ever given results for 11 months, was not happy about that) I can better deal with it.
