Very itchy lady part after trying on bikini

Patient

Q: About a month and a half ago I tried on a bikini and a few days later my vagina started to itch very badly. It was only getting worse everyday so I went to a walk in clinic and the doctor gave me a cream that felt like a burning painful sensation. I did not see much help from the cream. I had planed to go to a STI doctor but I left the country for 3 weeks and ever since i've been back Ive been busy and the itchiness has become very painful. I scratch so much I cut my vagina. I also have tiny blisters i assume, on my labia minora. I also have a boyfriend of 2 years and we have always been sexually active but we've never had any problems. I'm wondering if this is herpes?

Symptoms:  Itchiness and burning sensations
