Doctor said I have folliculitis. I say genital herpes. I'm paranoid and they never bother testing me and gave me cream to put don't know what to do.?
Do a herpes culture. Culture of the lesions, if the culture is +, it means herpes, if it is negative, it does not necessarily mean you do not have herpes, but, then you can do blood herpes antibodies for type 1 and type 2, if the antibodies are + and you have never had a cold sore then most likely the lesions are herpes, go for a second opinion to a different doctor if you are worried.
