If you were our patient I would reassure you with a high degree of certainty that you don't have herpes. we like patients to wait 4 months from an encounter to test most accurately, but almost 12 weeks with both negative is a very good sign.
I think you are swept up in worry, and likely with cause.

It is difficult to know if this is an outbreak of genital HSV 1 now. You may wish to have it swab tested so you can begin to sort out what is an outbreak and what is not.
