You need to get yourself seen by a dr. while the blisters are still there. Your bf (or you) may have HSV-2 and not know it. It's possible to have it for as many as 30 years or more and never have a symptom or sign that you have it. Even if you've never had a symptom, you can break out at any time, especially if you've had a trauma to the area (such as the scratch).

The doctor can only diagnose while the symptoms are still there. There is a blood test, but it's not conclusive without other tests and diagnostic symptoms.

A bacterial vaginal infection (BV) probably wouldn't cause the symptoms you describe; sometimes the only symptoms of a BV is intense, extreme pain.

Both of you should have full STD screenings, but you have to ask for a separate HSV-2 & 1 screening, as well.
