Hi, sorry for the possible TMI but I just wanted some opinions/advice before I take this to the doctors!

For context I tend to get cold sores in the corner of my mouth when I am poorly/run down which only usually last a few days and then go, but
For the past year or so whenever I get poorly with a viral illness (flu, coughs, sore throats etc) I have been getting 2 or 3 sore type blisters on my vulva, which are very painful and take a while to go.

I don't think this is an STI as they showed up first when I hadn't had sex at all recently but I'm at a loss to what else this could be sad

Anyone get anything similar or have any advice?

Could be genital herpes. Same kind of thing as the cold sores at your mouth but presenting on your genitals

Sounds like genital herpes to me! You need to get checked by a GUM clinic to be sure

They might not be able to test unless you have an active outbreak
