If it does not go away see a gyn or dermatologist

Prescribed Valtrex (valacyclovir) bc I tested positive for HSV2 antibodies blood test, but no outbreak - ok to to take even if I may not really have genital herpes?
It depends: Valtrex (valacyclovir) is to prevent outbreaks to protect you from them and your sex partner. You may still be infectious even when there are no symptoms of an outbreak yet. If you have been monogamous, the same sex partner, it may not be necessary to take it. Have them tested and discuss with your doctor. If you are abstinent, no, you don't need to take it, realizing you could have an outbreak.See 1 more doctor answer
Doctors assistant said the bump on my vagina looks like herpes and prescribed valtrex. They gave me azithromycin in case of STD but it helped the bump?
STD testing?: I hope STD testing was done to so that an accurate Rx can be given. The use of antibiotics should be given if there are specific indications for the same. The CDC is very concerned that we are running out of antibiotics for clinical use due to resistance and inappropriate prescribing. Check back with your MD to see if STD testing has been completed and what was the result.

Low risk: By being on Valtrex (valacyclovir) and using condoms, you're greatly lowering the risk. You can't do much more than that short of abstinence. Keep in mind that he could already have been infected, even if he has no outbreaks. The only way to find out would be with an hsv-2 antibody test. But since you're already taking valtrex, (valacyclovir) I'm not sure the information would help.See 1 more doctor answer
