I have been with someone for about 6 months, we recently had unprotected sex multiple days after not seeing each other for a while. The very next day after our last sexual encounter, we BOTH broke out in the same pimple type sores down there. Neither one of us are/were aware of having an STI...we both thought we were clean. We have not had other partners in over six month. Neither one of us have had any previous symptoms and it literally appeared at the same time for us both.
My lesions started as white pimple looking bumps all over inner and outer labia, even near inner most thigh area and pubic region. The skin directly around the pimples/sores was also red. At first it was uncomfortable, but I was able to do normal activities including working out. It was literally not there one day and boom there the next. And his lesions sound similar looking (although I haven't seen). They began to heal after about 4 days and now are scabbing over on dryer areas and cause no pain or itching for the past couple days. The inner more lesions sometimes bleed a tiny a bit but are now just painless red sores.
To me I had myself convinced it is herpes (I have been to the doctor waiting on results) however there were a couple weird things about the possible transmission of it either to me or from me. It seems a bit strange that we both showed the same pimple sores at the same exact time, while neither of us have ever shown signs or been tested positive for herpes before or for any STI for that matter. Or maybe I'm wrong? Any thoughts!? Thanks!
