Worried about pimple in my pubic area?


I had a unprotected sex like 3 months ago, but I noticed a pimple like thing in the area just above my penis or lower abdomen, its very dark brown in color, my skin is light brown in that area, I noticed it 3 weeks ago but may be it was there before, It does not hurt, In fact I dont even notice it, It was hard and shiny in light before (so I thought its a wart) but I started touching it gets filled with fluid, Couple of days ago I burst it and some fluid and blood came and since than it has healed. Can anyone suggest should be worried about it. FYI I often trim my hairs it that area but never had something like that before.

Hi, its doenot suggest herpes at all as genital herpes outbreaks are most often painful. And first time outbreaks would occur about 2 weeks after exposure not 3 months

Yes an ingrown hair can cause this. Dont be overly concerned about hiv as even though unprotected vaginal sex is considered high risk you fall into a low risk group.
