Goodluck hope you get some answers from the new GP.
My DD1 developed an awful nappy rash at about 18 months - turns out she had become allergic to the nappy wipes we were using. We had been using the same brand all her life with no problems. It looked like her bottom had been burnt, she had big blisters and red skin.
To help relieve the discomfort we had to go to just using a wet face washer to clean her. Bi-carb soda in the bath really helped as well as lots of nappy free time and lathered her in cornflour when ever she had a nappy on. It took about 6 months for it to properly clear up. She had a couple of nasty spots on her bottom that got infected and need antibiotics and a prescription cream from the dr.

I just wanted to let you know we took DS back to a different doctor this morning and what a relief.
He almost laughed at us. He said he was over 90% sure he doesn't have genital herpes but possibly a chicken pox/shingles 'herpes'. We told him the other GP was very clear in the type of herpes she thought he had and she definately said "GENITAL HERPES". He said absolutely not. He seems to believe that herpes usually breaks out in one area, whereas DS has it all over his groin area and his boy bits. He told us to put betadine oitment on him until we get the results next week.
Thank you so much to everyone that posted, without your guidance and support we may not have got a second opinion.

OMG! I'm so glad you went to another Dr and didn't wait for 1 week. Your first Dr is an idiot. Sorry. But he/she is completely mis-informed about everything to do with the virus. There is only 1 way you can get genital herpes and that's with direct contact with a coldsore (above or below). Genetic?! What a crock!
BTW my DS got a rash that looked like the virus and it was infected nappy rash. I wouldn't recommend you take your child back to the first Dr..ever!
