[Question #1459] Herpes?

45 months ago
I am virgin, who had mild sexual contact a two years ago. (Genital Rubbing, and brief, inconclusive oral). During those said two years, I have went through numerous bouts of psychological and emotional stress, drank excessively and went through a series of triggers that would set off herpes. Nothing happened. And I haven't touched anybody since that encounter. (Though I do have a vibrator that I clean religiously, if that somehow relates)
I've always had a suppressed immune system. I already suffer from cold sores of the mouth. I've had two run ins with MRSA. I suffer from regular eczema and psoriasis. To have irritation in the areas that would warrant genital herpes was not uncommon for me before I even had sexual contact. I have always had a rather sensitive vagina and have prone to psoriasis on my thighs and my ass. Those have always been my stress areas, ever since I was a little girl.
However, recently after a night of drinking, and dancing, I woke up to find my period and a rash on my ass. This was nothing like I had ever experienced before. It did not feel like eczema or psThe rash had a few white bumps on it, that burst a few days later and left no scars or pain. And then my vagina went insane, hurting like crazy, with massive amount of discharge, both before and after my period looking red and inflamed.
Now bear in mind a few important details:
1.) I was wearing a pair of underwear that I found out a cat had sat on. I am allergic to cats. (this is not a joke. Seriously. It's not.)
2.) I was running around and sweating excessively, in tight jeans, and have not been cleaning the area affected that regularly. I walked a solid three miles that night, and danced till dawn. 
3.) Again, I'm a virgin, who has not had sexual contact of any sort in two years.
4.) The activity that nig
Is it possible that after all this time, my body has now decided to have its first outbreak?
It seems unlikely considering my intensely suppressed immune system. Sores should have appeared before

4.) The activity that happened that night* was not out of the ordinary for me.

From your description, this doesn't sound like herpes to me.  So on your bottom or around your vagina, I would expect sores if this was herpes.  On your bottom, I would expect water blisters that are tender and then break open and release fluid and then scab over - the whole process might take a few weeks.  In the genital area, also specific sores, not generalized redness without sores. 
Did you have itching in the vaginal area?  Could that have been a bad yeast infection?  Was the discharge clumpy and white? 
I also think the contact that you describe is unlikely to result in herpes transmission, though I cannot say 100% it could not be herpes, but I do think really unlikely. 
If you are still worried you could do an antibody test, IgG.  If you suffer from cold sores, then you will be positive likely for HSV 1 and not need to test for that - just HSV 2 IgG.  But again, the oral sex wasn't really risky for herpes as you have oral infection already and would be unlikely to get it genitally and the rubbing is also very low risk.

The discharge was clumpy and white! Though kind of yellowish on occasion. It appeared all around my vagina. It was watery as well though. And yes I have had extensively bad itching. 
Is it possible, and I'm sure this sounds clinically insane, but would it have been possible for me to have contracted herpes from a toilet seat? I know that people claim that is impossible, but considering the fact that the sores were on my bottom or rather, the white bumps, is it possible? We were at some grimy clubs. Not that such means anything, I'm just saying.

You did not contract herpes from a toilet seat unless you were having sex on the toilet seat.  It doesn't get into your body in that way.
To me, the vaginal situation sounds very very much like a yeast infection.

Ok well, I will take your word for it. Thank you so much for your help. Also I would like to apologize for the semi-illiteracy present in my first question. I wrote it in a nervous hurry, and didn't do any sort of editing/double checking/proper writing in general.

No need to apologize, you should see some of my writing!  I surprise even myself at the poor quality when I'm in a hurry.
