Hi,
I am a 24 year old male, on no medication and have been previously diagnosed with genital herpes. I have noticed these bumps(see pictures) come up over a long period of time and would like to know what they are? Like maybe I also have HPV or are these a symptom of my HSV-2? I do not understand my infection very well, every doctor I have ever seen has just handed a prescripition for Vatrex and said don't have un-protected sex! Not very helpful. So if they are a symptom of HSV, are they a break-out? Will they go away if I continualy take Valtrex? I have had what I beleive are break-outs, where I get small painful leisions then they clear, this is a breakout yes? I hope I have provided you with enough information so you can help me! Thanks!

Please do look at them! I should also mention, I do not take treatment for my HSV, I let the breakout run it's course, if this is a bad thing please tell me so! Thank you again and I hope for some help to this problem soon! Thanks again!
