HI - I'm a 30 year old female. I recently had sex with a friend about a week ago; pretty sure he doesn't have herpes. Today I felt slightly uncomfortable after sitting all day at work and went to the bathroom and felt a small raise in the skin on my inner butt cheek. i looked with a mirror and saw several vague bumps; some close together, others not so close. they don't look like blisters and are not open. they don't hurt or itch, i just felt something from sitting and then walking with but cheeks rubbing together. also like a pimple would feel ive since been obsessively examing with mirors and pulling skin. the area just looks irritated and red. i DID notice that almost all of these 'bumps' seem to have a hair follicale in them.. from what i can see. other thing that worries me is i recall something relatively simliar about a year ago or so.. but at that point i chalked it up to irritation from sweat, as i exercise a lot. now im freaking out it can be recurrant herpes? i've also been exersiing a bit recently, with a thong which i think adds irrtation. what does this sound like??? is there a chance its folliculutis or some kind of skin rash and not herpes??? i keep googling it and herpes comes up so im panicing.....
