Is this herpes, a yeastie or something else?

I am freaking out right now. I've been suffering from this weird recurrent BV/not quite BV thing for months and have recently finished a week of internal antibiotic cream. Things still didn't feel right so last night I started using this thing called Balance Active which you insert into the vagina to treat BV or an overgrowth of bacteria. I've used it many times before. This morning I was getting dressed and I felt slight pain in my labia so decided to check it out in the mirror (I often feel pain and often check it out and see nothing). Well this time, the inside of my outer labia was very reddish and swollen, which often happens, but this time I saw 2 distinct red areas which look like sores to me. So I'm thinking it could be herpes?

This is the worst possible time of year for it to happen, as the doctors surgery is closed until WEDNESDAY and I can't even call to make an appt for then as it's closed. And I haven't attended the doctor here in my home country for years, so I'm not even sure I'm still registered. To add to that, the water has been off here at home for the past 2 days, so I can't even take a bath or shower to see if that helps. I'm just so upset and overwhelmed. If it's herpes, I want to know about it, at least. What can I do?
