I cannot believe this board...I am going through almost the exact same thing. After diagnosis 20+ years ago with maybe 5 breakouts total I am now at 47 years old with the same husband for 24 years having constant outbreaks for the last month. I am going crazy! As soon as I finish a course of oral meds and things get better, a new area starts to tingle and a new bump will appear. I am at my wits end. They are painful. My vagina is itching like its on fire and I absolutely have no idea why at this time in my life after so many calm years, it has gone totally ballistic!
