Textbook herpies or not

So a couple weeks ago I had a breakout of what I thought was pimples in my genital area.  But when I got flu like symptoms a couple days after the breakout I started to think it may be more.  Once I felt a little better I went to the doctor and got tested for herpies, HIV, yeast infection, and syfilis.  All tests came back negative but the rash continued for 3 weeks.  Is this herpies and a need to be retested or is this something else.
