    Is this herpes?

    This started out as a cut that I thought was exacerbated by friction. My doctor says that she can't be conclusive as to what it could be until the swab/culture comes back. My girlfriend has been having a yeast infection, and I'm wondering if it could be related to that. She is not showing signs of herpes. I recently had a HSV-2 blood test that came back negative. The partners I've been with since claimed they were HSV-2 negative as well.

    Please let me know what you think this could possibly be. Thank you.

    Sounds like you have a yeast infection as well. OTC yeast infection cream a couple times a day for a few days should clear it right up.
