About 3 weeks ago i found a very hard pealike bump near my labia but not on it. It hurt a bit but then stopped hurting and now is just a red lump there. It never itched. I looked online and thought it must be a cyst because it does not sound like herpes. It honestly sounds like a sebaceous cyst. I kept planning on going to the doctor but kept chickening out (I'm very afraid of doctors--i know i need to grow up and go). Yesterday, I woke up and I had what appears to be about 6 or 7 hivelike bumps around my lower buttcheek/uppper inner thigh area. They are a little itchy and lightly red and do not look like they are filled with pus at all. The literally look like little bug bites or hives. I tried to pop one and it just let out a tiny tiny bit of blood, no pus. The rest won't pop but seem to have a slight head similar to the way a mosquito bite often has a barely visible head. I realize I must see a gynecologist immediately but I am just SO nervous and have never been to a OBGYN before but have been sexually active this past month (for the first time in a year). I am very nervous this is herpes! Also the bumps are not clustered. They are in patches in the sense that they aren't spread all over my body, but they are individual bumps not touching one another. I also have a single tiny red bump on my inner thigh as well as above my pelvic bone on my stomach and 2 on my outer labia. I thought they may be razor burn but i dont shave this far upper thighs! I was thinking allergy, or something? I don't know! I am just petrified it's something incurable. If anyone has any idea what this could be or how to fix it with any home remedies, etc. please please let me know! Thank you so much!
