Can Herpes Lay Dormant for 5 years?
I have this awful rash that looks like a diaper rash that babies get or a heat rash of some sorts. It itches and burns and is very red. I have been treating it with triple-antibiodic onitments, vaginal onitments, and I have just started trying desitin for babies now. The skin looks like it is peeling off around it as it is white and flakey. This has been bothering me for 2 weeks. There are no sores inside the vagina and it doesn't hurt when I use the bathroom either. I have not had sex with anyone in over 5 years, could this be some form or herpes just now showing or some other STD or just a simple rash of some kind? My ex has told me he has been tested for all STDS multiple times and is clean, and he was the only person I have ever been with and like I stated above that was 5 years ago.
Any suggestions for what it could be please feel free to give me some imput, as I am scheduled to see a doctor on Monday if it doesn't clear up this weekend, but I don't have insurance so if I can get out of going to a doctor for it because it is just something simple and nothing for me to be concerned about I would rather treat it with over the counter stuff if it will eventually work.
