It started with a burning pain during urination, which lasted two days with no other symptoms. The doctor said I had a UTI and advised me to drink plenty of fluids, which I did. Then two days after, there was a lump on my right labia. The painful urination has gone, but this lump on my right labia is still there, and it is very painful, more when I touch it. When I first had these symptoms, I was eight weeks pregnant and had a miscarriage last month. A nurse said that I have Genital Herpes. I am taking Carbimazole 5 mg daily for Graves disease and am currently on antiviral medications for potential Herpes. I have also undergone swab test tests, and I have not received the results yet. Urine tested positive for leucocytes and ph. Could it be something else? I have taken pictures.

First of all, there are no readily available blood tests for genital herpes, and most often, a clinical examination is enough to confirm it. This is a painful blister, and a possible cause is a genital herpes, with a previous history of urine infection for which you are taking treatment. There are some general guidelines regarding genital herpes that you need to follow:
There is no treatment for this if you do not report very early. Antiviral medications can help manage the severity and the duration if taken immediately before an outbreak when there is tingling or an unusual skin sensation, but no blisters within 24 hours of an outbreak. That is to be taken after consulting your doctor, but it is rarely needed or prescribed. Lastly, this is an STD (sexually transmitted disease), and thus, you need to get an STD profile screening to rule out other STDs as a cause. So, talk to your physician about it.
