I am a young female and noticed something has been

Patient

Q: I am a young female and noticed something has been going on "downstairs". I had been itching on my vaginal area on the outside where pubic hair grows but I didn't think anything of it. Then a couple days later I was scratching when I sat on the toilet and a m&m sized scab fell into my hands. Then the next day there was another one, but this one was a puss ball and was a lot smaller. It took about 2 weeks to fully heal. Now there is one in the crease of my butt between my anus and vagina. I've looked up a lot of different things and most cites say it's vaginal herpes. I've only had sex with one man and we were both each other's first. I'm kinda worried because it is spreading so much. Any suggestions?
