I have a big huge bump down there, help!

2 posts in this topic

I'm not very sexually active I have only had 4 partners and they wore condoms except for one of them, but this is like my best friend who I trust (or at least I thought I did.) He hasn't had unprotected sex with anyone but me either. It has been 6 years since I had sex before he came along and I just noticed today that I have this big huge bump down there that I am hoping it's a pimple, but my question is could it be herpes? I'm not having any other symptoms and I only have one bump not a bunch like I have seen on pictures. I plan on going to the doctors, but i'm shy so I thought i'd come here and ask. Is it possible that It could be something else?? what do they look like how can I tell for sure if it is or not?

could be

Only a doctor and a scraping from the bump to look at under a microscope will tell you for sure. My last relationship I was with a guy who told me he ALWAYS used condoms . We used condoms for a while then quit after we were together for a few, 4 years later I have had my first OB. I only had 2 little "scratches" and an itch and burning...nothing that looked like the text book pictures. I went to the doc who too thought it was probably just a scratch from itching but he took a sample of it (scraping) and imagine my surprise when that culture sample came back positive for type 2 !!??? For your sake and piece of mind...get it checked . If you never know and it is you can spread it.

    • Some Things I Wish I Knew When I was First Diagnosed
      THANK YOU BEYONCE!!! Now in December will be a year and it's just been a roller coaster full of emotions for me.  You not only educated me but brought tears of joy and hope.  I have not been able to build courage and open up to ANYONE to talk about my condition.  I just found this forum a few days and decided to write today.  My case it that I get really extra itchy before my period and I think I'm gonna have an OB.  I've been moody lately and I think this is not helping me. I've been taking Valtrex daily and started lysine.  I'm definitely trying the free oil today.  Anyway, I want you to know that I value all your information specially knowing that the chances of transmitting H to my partner is minimal.  I didn't know this.  I just have been avoiding sex as much as possible and this has been hurting my relationship.  After reading your post I have high hope that my life will sooner rather than later be back to normal XOXO

      I have a doctors appointment on Thursday and i will try to get them to prescribe me Gabapentin or Amiptriptline, see if either of them work. Knowing these stupid doctors they will just say "ibuprofen" like last time..
    • Numbness??
      Is it normal with ghsv2 to have a kinda numbing dull feeling on your (ladylips)
    • oral herpes?
      Thanks for the replies guys Eh kinda yeah, sometimes the tips of my tounge get little red spots while inside my upper and lower lip will get like non painful blisters but theyl have yellow heads? Don't think there canker either! They come and go too. My top lip also heats up anytime I grind my teeth along it (without noticing I do it) small bumps then start to form but go down after say an hour? Pretty strange the way it activates then goes again? I aslo have this sane blister I spoke about with the yellow head on my inner top lip since late September, its flat there's no raise from it, doesn't hurt hasn't changed shape nor colour but its still there, I check almost every day and its never disperad! Anyone any ideas or advice? Constantly worked about oral or kissing my bf because its never left my inner lip after months!
