I went to the Doctor almost two months ago due to one open sore about a 1/2 to a 1/4 of an inch from my anus on my left side. He said it was either herpes or warts and that if it didn't go away in a few weeks to go back. He explained that I would have gotten it from sexual contact from that area. I tried to explain to him that I am not homo sexual and that I have never had any male contact there and he seemed to get very uncomfortable like he thought I was being untruthful.
This spot has gone away for a day or two at a time but continues to come back over and over again. It has been everything from an open sore about the size of pea to an itching burning lump (currently). I am very confused because I have only had sexual contact in that area from women in the past and I'm not sure how I got it, I know someone will tell me to go back to the doctor but I would really like some insight from this forum first. Thanks.
