does this sound like a cold sore?

Recommended Posts


About 5 weeks ago, I was raped, orally and vaginally. A week later I had a few red dots on my vagina. There was no pain, no itching etc. They went away after 2 weeks.

For the past month my vagina has been feeling... odd. It's not exactly hurting, just a slight discomfort.

Then 4 days ago a small, round flesh colored bump appeared on the edge of my lip. It has not changed it's appearance in 4 days and is completely the color of my skin. Does this sound like the beginning of a cold sore. It is slightly raised, flesh colored.

I am going to planned parenthood to be tested tomorrow, I have put it off due to embarrassment. I have a boyfriend of 4 years, who does not know what happened to me. No one does. I don't know how to tell him, if he will still want to be with me.

Anyway does this sound like herpes, and oral herpes also.

Thank you for any input you may have.

Hello darling, I'm very sorry for what happened to you, i'm not a doctor but it sounds like it could be genital warts if it's on your vagina...the hpv virus...which in most women will clear itself away in 8 months to 2 years...but you can still spread it. If the bump is on your lip and it tingles a little bit wait and see, b/c it will probably "weep" as in to say open into a sore. But herpes can take the form of several different symptoms in people:itchy, small tears/papercut looking abrasions on the genitals, the sores, swollen bumps, what looks like pimples, fatigue, etc. Hopefully you have used protection with your boyfriend since you were raped....honestly you should have confided in your boyfriend about what happened and he may not take the news so well since you've waited so long but you should tell him especially if you have been exposed to an std. If you still have the bump down then you they can look at it and take a swab sample to send it in for testing, but if you don't you may need to get a blood test. The Planned Parenthood in my city (it is right on a big campus) does not do testing for herpes unless you have an actual sore present for them to swab (they don't do blood tests)...but if you look online type in std testing and you'll find a 1-800 number you can call to make an immediate appointment but it's expensive.

      Hello.... hope this message finds you well... Pay attention to your diet , there's a young lady on YouTube called Laureen HD... follow her sh is awsome...  Doctors never told me about diet part of it... so peanuts and other junk food I love had me experiencing minor outbreaks which take forever to heal , I'm not on suppression med which I decided just to do... makes no sense to take 12 natural pills when u can take 1. ..  watch your coffee,  sugar and nuts intake ( no pun intended) The after care remedies are good.

      Yes. I have had good experience with CBD oil over the past few months. Here is my "routine". When I notice the first signs of an outbreak, pop the blisters with a tissue, then apply 1 drop of 10% CBD oil rubbing it into the popped blisters for ten seconds or so. Then apply another drop twice a day (morning and evening) for as many days as needed.

      Healing shows progress even overnight. Usually the redness is gone within 1 or 2 days, and the blisters are tiny holes (hard to even see) within 2 to 3 days. Totally healed within 2 to 4 days.

      This has been the fastest healing of the many other approaches I have tried over the years.

      Ben 21 yaşındayım ve 7 ay önce herpes ile enfekte oldum. sevgilimden enfekte Herpes ağzında vardı, ama iyileşmişti ve bir oral seks yapmıştı. Bu enfekte. İkimizin de bir şoku vardı. Bu şekilde enfekte olduğunu bilmiyorduk. İlişkiye 7 ay geçti, ama cinsel organları bulaşmadı. Sürekli üzülüyorum ve bir saldırı geçiriyorum. Her gün ağlarım. hayatım mahvolmuş .. artık yaşamak istemiyorum. Bu gençlerle yıllarca nasıl yaşayacağımı bilmiyorum. Sadece ölmek ve ondan kurtulmak istiyorum Çok üzgünüm ve şanssızım .. Yazım hataları için üzgünüm çünkü bu bir antropoloji değil
