Sweating, outbreak of acne. Diagnosed with Herpes type 2. Will I be okay?

Hi, I was just diagnose with Herpes type 2, im 50 Ive had long term relationships, theres been incidents before and in between, but was protected sex. Since im 50 and in a long term relation, its been of and on. I had insecurities that something was going on with my partner I see off and on. He wont give me an answer at all if hes been with soimeone or if it was protected. The thing is the dr was impressed that I didnt have an outbreak , even though we dont know how long or soon I was exposed to the virus. I was wondering about acne on your bottom, I get that time to time I brush it off from sitting and sweating in pants and try and dry it out. I hate it and nobody wants to talk about it, but Im thinking could that be the herpes virus breakout, Please let me know what you think. Thank you soooo much!
