User :   hello, i am 21 and about one or two weeks ago i started having seriously aggravating vaginal itch and now some blisters appeared. i am not really sexually active ( I have had sex once in the past year, and that was 6 months ago) so I don't think it is herpes. what can it be? i will go see a gyno in a few days when some guests leave but in the mean while it is driving me up the wall, especially at night...
