I posted earlier about a hard bump that I developed last Thursday. I have had this before a few times over the last 7 or 8 years (maybe 5 times). It is hard and round under the skin like a deep pimple you get on your face. I decided to take a bleach bath (added 1/2 cup of bleach to my bath water) just in case it was some sort of skin infection. Friday it blistered, or had some fluid in it and it burst almost immediately. It then went back to being a hard bump. It has no scab on it and has only hurt when I pushed or squeezed it. Today it is almost completely gone, but when I touch it, it is a little itchy. I have an appointment with my physician tomorrow afternoon, but I think it will be completely gone by then so I wont be able to get it swabbed....I am planning on asking for a blood test, but I'm fairly certain I have oral HSV 1 from my current partner.
I really would like some input here because I don't think it is big enough to have been a boil, and I'm clueless on what else it could be other than herpes.....I hate the thought that I could have transmitted or am at risk of transmitting HSV 2 to anyone.
