I am just wondering of anyone could set my mind at ease. 5 days ago I noticed a burning feeling when urinating. After a closer look there were a few pimple like lumps around my vulva close to my vagina. I think the may be ingrown hairs as I shaved the day they appeared but now they have become open wounds and are only very small but are very painful when urinating. I removed a hair from under a new bump today which has resulted in a new wound. Some of them have healed but the really sore ones further towards my vagina will not heal. I do not think it is an STD as I have a boyfriend and he does not have any symptoms and I have not been with anyone else. Please help.
This sounds a lot like genital herpes. You need to go to a doctor while the sores are still there so you can have a culture taken. You could also ask Dr. HHH on the STD forum, but I think he'll tell you the same thing.
You need to see a doctor. It might not be that, but it would be best to find out.
even tho neither of us have had symptoms before and we've been together for 2 years now? could it just be a bad reaction to shaving or a new shower gel i used? i will go get it checked anyway but was hoping not to hear that it sounds like herpes.
i been having bacterial infections lately ... i will get the meds for them but once i am finished them and have sex again i start itching ... the doctor has giving me a one time cream which took the itching away but now i have chapped and kind of open wounds that burn like cuts when i wipe after using the bathroom... what could this be... the doctor didnt actually check me the last time i went to the doctors so he didnt have a chance to see the sores... how can you get genital herpes if the guy has no symptoms and he is clean... can anyone help or has anyone had these symptoms?
I am sorry to inform you that 90% of people who contract genatle herpes contract it from a partner who has no symptoms...it can also take years to show up. it sounds very much like herpes to me i would go to the doctor and get a test its very simple. also just to inform people who do not know there are two types of herpes type 1 (cold sores) and type 2 (genital) . if you have ever had a cold sore you have the herpes virus and if you engage in oral sex with a cold sore...you can give them type 1 down there...it is extremely easy to spread i know i man who got it from a stripper at his bachelor party just from her picking a dollar bill off his face with her thighs.
