Signs of outbreak

Haven’t been officially diagnosed as my dr needs swaps when I have sores and I can’t get time off work to go when they appear!!

Does anyone else get a lump near the entrance to their vagina and a constant itch (like when you’ve shaved and it’s growing back) just before an outbreak of genital herpes? I keep getting this and I don’t know if it’s normal or if I don’t have herpes after all and it could be something else.

All bloods have come back normal.
