Hi, I just have a couple of questions and i will try to be as descriptive as possible. I had this red bump appear close to my vagina opening of course i picked at it because i didnt know what it was and it starting bleeding and it kind of scared me because i am pregnant so i went to the dr and she said that it didnt show any classic signs of herpes but since i was pregnant she was going to go ahead a culture it to be on the safe side. Well i went home and started doing some warm compresses on it because i know that warm compresses will help bring the hair or hairs to the service. I did that now for two days and i had my husband get down there and look at it and he said you could barely see these couple ofhairs poking out of the center of it. So i got the tweezers and he pulled out three hairs from it, one was really long and the other ones were a bit smaller. I have never had anything like this before. No more have appeared, it doesnt really look like a blister, no pus or anything has really came out of it just that first day that it bled because i was picking at it.
So i guess my questions are, to herpes lesions have hair in them? I have been told that herpes do not bleed...this one bled, is it true that they dont bleed? Could this just be a infected hair? Oh another thing is that it is not painful, sore or anything, i wouldnt have even known it was there if i wouldnt have felt it. I do shave on occasion but since my belly has gotten big i cant see to shave and i have been letting all the hair grow out. Please help, im worried.
Hello, it could be an ingrown hair. It could have been just a skin irritation or pimple. I don't think herpes have hair in them, they are more like a wart i believe. I am sure your dr. will get back to you with the results and you will be fine. If you are further then 10wks, i am sure they did all kinds of test and would have known by now about other possible STD's etc. So good luck, i bet you will be fine! :0)
