How long does it take a Vaginal Herpes blister/pimple to burst?
I've had this weird red bump on the inside of my vagina for what I know for sure 2 days. It's only tender when you push down on it, and it feels hard. I can't figure out if it's a blister waiting to burst, or a cyst, or pimple...I don't know! I went to my gyn and got it cultured the minute I noticed it yesterday.
How long does it usually take for a herpes blister to form and pop?
He said he wouldn't have thought anything of it, but I'm nervous about everything and never saw something like that before...so he swabbed it for herpes just to reassure me and to be safe. But he told me not to worry, and my primary doctor told me that she said it didn't look like herpes.
But what's the time duration from the beginning of the sore to it popping? is it hours? days?
Thank you for your patience with me. I drew blood on Monday to get another IGG test done, and my doctor swabbed that red bump I have...and all over the place down there to go in for a culture test. There is also a teeny tiny little pimple I found down there, but it's not tender, doesn't burn or sting, and is flesh colored. I just can't stop analyzing myself down there.
I'm just not quite sure how the symptoms should "feel." I've heard the whole "you'll know it if you got it" thing, but i don't believe that. Seems like there are a lot of people that never showed any symptoms! So, I guess that's what has me so worried.
Is it possible for someone to have cold sores but not test positive for hsv-1? and vice versa?
I am having the exact same thing! I have a pimple looking sore inside my left labia, and it just looks like a normal pimple. It had a white head and when I was trying to get a better look it kinda poped and i squeezed it and just like a pimple it started bleeding a little. there is no pain, no itch, and no problems while urinating. And there is only one sore, the skin is smooth and at the beginning just like yours when u press it it would hurt a little and feel hard. Now this is the 3rd day it certainly is smaller but still there... I am paranoid a little... I don't know how herpes sores should look or feel like.. Is there a way to distunguish them? Are the herpes sores should look like watery blisters or more like regular pimples? Are they always extremely painful or not? Anybody can answer?
