Is it Herpes? Are these symptoms?

Since a risky encounter, I have had tingling, prickly feeling in my genitals for several weeks. I first developed what looks like some scarring on my inner thighs. There were no lesions, though. I went to my doctor, he said it doesn't look like herpes. I have taken a few blood tests, all IGM and IGG were negative, but I understand that short of 3 months, they are not reliable, so I must wait.

I have this tingly, prickly, pins and needles feeling daily, it seems to worsen at night. I have had it for 6 weeks. My doctor says if it was herpes, it would turn into blisters, and since it has not, I shouldn't think it is herpes. he has put me on Acyclovir for a week, and Valacyclovir for a week as well, but these feelings persist.

I have also tried anti-fungal creams with no result.

I have read that it is possible that I am having a lot of minor outbreaks, or maybe the anti-viral meds are keeping it from becoming full blown outbreak.

Has anyone had weeks of this feeling and has been diagnosed with herpes? Is this common?

Re: Is it Herpes? Are these symptoms?

Thanks for the reply. It does seem to get worse at night, but its the tingling that gets worse. I don't have any blisters. I had some skin cracks one day, but the doctor said it didn't look like herpes, just chafed skin from my run. Also, he said I'd have antibodies if I had symptoms, he may be wrong.

Its really just a constant tingly feeling, that gets worse every evening. Sometimes there are these momentary prickly sensations in parts of my genitals as well.
