Greetings. So now i understand what your problem is - you have Herpes zoster - this is what your doctor seems to have diagnosed it to be. And what you have read on the internet is Genital herpes or Herpes genitalis. The two disorders can look similar if herpes zoster affects the lower back and extends to the genitals. Hope I have answered your doubt. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards
