Genital Herpes
I regularly get little blisters in the perinium area which are very sore. The pain gets better once the blisters have been popped. Had a urine test to confirm that it was genital herpes but it came back negative?

The best way to make the diagnosis of herpes is a swab from the blisters when they are present.
