Normally recurrent herpes symptom include pain, burning and tingling before
the appearance of blisters or sores. These symptoms may last 2 weeks.
If you have been tested negative and have no blisters or sores it probably isn’t Herpes.
If you have no other symptoms, a culture would help to identify problem.

Hi.
Thanks for the query..

Genital herpes commonly represents as cluster of fluiod filled sores or bumps also known as Cold sores..

Tingling sensation alone cannot be said to be Herpes.

Also as you got tested and it is negative ot further confirms you free from herpes..

Tingling can be due to other infection, irritation, allergic reaction etc.

Do once get clinically evaluated by a Gynaecologist.

For now wear cotton undergarment and loose clothes.
You should also maintain a good genital hygiene..

Hope this helps..

Regards
