I noticed a few pimple looking things on my chest. i squeezed one and puss came out like from a whitehead. three other ones were close by but they were scabbed over. I then noticed i had a reddish bump on my upper groin. i had a week shaved before so i dont know if its in ingrown hair. its not painful but im freaking out. i read that website grace had recommended but that didnt help me out in diagnosing. Is herpes painful? do they look like zits or ingrown hairs? please help im losing my mind. would herpes be on your chest arms etc?
im just wondering if one had contact with someone with and herpes and you caught it would you get an outbreak in a week, 2 weeks, a month, 2 months, 3 months etc. is there a timeline if you were exposed and contracted it.
my exposure was something completely different i was stabbed with a bloody knife. and ffought a guy who was all bloody and i either broke his nose or knocked some teeth out but he sit alot of blood into my eyes nose and mouth. we wresteld and his blood got into the wound im more worried about hiv but with all this weird bumps popping up etc im worried about everything. m just curious about the timeline for herpes. Im really freaked out about hiv but after seeing these bumps on my chest and one on my groin and all these bumps on my arms which could be bug bites. im just a mess . worried about everything. hence my handle basketcase. thanks
