Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
The appearance of sores, blisters or other blister-like structures are normally linked to herpes
, but we cannot assume this as you have mentioned itching and scratching the region quite often. This appearance of itching around the genitals could be due to a simple urinary tract infection
(UTI) or other sexually transmitted infections as well.
Some other symptoms of a UTI are:
-Burning sensation while urinating
-Increased urge to urinate, but less amount of urine passed
-Lower abdominal and/or flank region pain
-Itching around the genitals
-Blood in urine or immediately after (not always seen)
Although, this will also have to be conducted with a laboratory analysis of your urine. I would urge you to first try this, by giving your urine sample for a laboratory analysis, which will show signs of an infection, and can accordingly be treated from there on.
If your partner has not been in a sexual relationship before, and neither have you, the chances of this being a sexually transmitted infection are slim to nothing. Which is why, let us look for a UTI first, and only if a urine report does not provide a conclusive result can we assume other sexually transmitted infections, which can be screened with the help of a vaginal smear.
