I just went to the doctor and she said I

Patient : I just went to the doctor and she said I probably have Herpes (around and inside my anus) we are still waiting for the lab results, but she prescribed me the pills to take. I'm still in agonizing pain I need an otc ointment to numb the pain. I need to be able to work out and move. Plus I haven't been able to have a proper bowel movement for 3-4 days because of the pain. I don't know what otc ointment would be best for this. The only numbing thing I know of Is vagisil. The doctor told me not to use bactracin on the area but didn't give any insight as to what I should use for pain.
Symptoms:  Open sores around anal area, pain
