Had genital sores last week and swab results negative for herpes. They are healing but now I have tingling in leg and sore bum on same side as sores?

In brief: Bloodwork?

Herpes cultures will only be positive about 60% of the time, even with active disease.
Having bloodwork to look for antibodies to the herpes virus can help confirm the diagnosis.
