I have been told that it is folliculitis and herpes. I tested negative on my blood work for herpes. What can it be? And can folliculitis look like this? The doctor said the lesions might be due to the irritation of chlamydia? So I tested positive for chlamydia about two days ago, and my partner and I are both taking medication. I have some reddish blisters around my bug or leg and vagina. My doctor says it is due to irritation from chlamydia and folliculitis. I have been reading online, and everything points to herpes, and I am still worried even though my blood test came negative. Any advice is appreciated. I am currently taking Doxiciclina for chlamydia.

Thanks for your reply.
I just started getting treatment for Chlamydia yesterday. I began to show symptoms, but the doctor gave me only Baycuten while waiting for the blood test results. My symptoms are itchy; they sometimes burn when I urinate. Most of the start as a small pimple and then turned big. I have pictures of how they have progressed.

Clinically, it favors herpes genitalis; I would advise you to start tablet Aciclovir 400 mg thrice daily for seven days and T Bact (Mupirocin) ointment twice daily over the lesion. The test does not always come positive within few weeks of exposure, so you need to repeat tests after four weeks, and tests include HSV-1 (Herpes simplex virus) and 2 IgG (Immunoglobulin G) and IgM (Immunoglobulin M). Nevertheless, you can go for PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) from the lesion now to get confirmation about herpes. I hope it helps. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
