swollen lymph nodes and red area sometimes pimples in pubic area
about a week ago i noticed i has a raised lymph node in my groin
well after shaving i had a ingrown hair coming in i tweased it out and it turned into a scab
about 4 days after that i noticed a couple pimples that looked like more shave rash after popping a couple they scabbed normaly but their is a red raised rash area about a the size of a quarter near the scab and from sweating im sure it is harder to heal
lately i have been outside alot hiking,camping out in the heat alot
every once in awhile you get the tick or two you have to yank off
well now a lymph node one the other side of my groin has raise
my question is could this be from strenuous activity,insect bite,focillitus (spelling) or does it sound more like hsv-2 i havent been sexually active in close to a month if not longer
