    From what you describe it sounds to me like you have a bad yeast infection.  Herpes blisters can be on the inside of the vagina, but they're usually on the outside and in a localized spot.  Herpes causes itchiness, but just in one area.  However, there is no way for me, or anyone, to diagnose you online. You should go see a doctor who will probably be able to take one look and immediately tell you what you have.  The sooner you go, the better.  It will be very easy to get a diagnosis and treatment, if you go while you still have symptoms.

    I too went through this fear, i was so over worked, and i have never even had sex, just a minute of skin to skin contact, i was crying thinking the bumps were herpes, so as embbarassed as i was, i was scared so i showed my mom and asked if this was normal, becasue i was sure they were there before but since i was scared i was unsure, my mother didnt know so i made her check if she had them and she does, i also talked to a close friend about it, and she too had them, i also have the itch, and it only doesnt itch when i sit still or nothing is rubbing against me, i went to my doctor and he gave me a medication and it did not work, im thinking it is from shaving and using nair and letting the hair grow back, but possibly crabs, hope i helped you, i know how scared i was

    so it kinda sounds like herpes. my first outbreak was on the inside of my vagina and now i get sores on the outside. the first sores look different from the ones i get now. mine don't hurt and i have no other symptoms but they itch like hell. if you have discharge that is also another sign and burning when you pee. i had all these the first time but i don't get this anymore. valtrex doesn't work for me either but probably cause i'm pregnant. bad immune system. go get checked out. it's sucky and scary but you need to so we can all stop spreading the virus.

    First things first go get checked as soon as possible... i have herpes and i got the symptoms about four days later. i didnt think anything of it but then i started feelin sick and like had had the flu. so i went and got checked, my doctor said i was very brave cuz i went as a walk in and got tested to see what was going on i told my doctor about the blisters i had and also went for blood test. i went a week later and they told me i had herpes... i was very scared and didnt know how to tell ma mom but i told her the same day any way... im just scared to tell my boyfriend cuz i kno he was the one who gave it to me ive had herpes for almost two months now... My advice would be for you to go get checked.
