Pimple

I read on a prior post that herpes do not "pop" like a normal pimple would. Which would also mean that they do not "head" like a normal pimple or discharge white.

Is this true ?

Herpes symptoms can vary

The only way to know if it is herpes is to go to a clinic or doctor and get tested. The swab test can be done at the height of an outbreak so go ASAP. Planned Parenthood will do a swab test on the outbreak. Herpes has a lot of different symptoms, and often none at all, so it is tricky and very hard to speculate about. If you are worried, go to a doctor. Get the swab test on the outbreak (or pimple or whatever it is). The herpes blood test can be done at least 3 months from the time of suspected exposure so you might want to follow up with a blood test eventually. But get the swab test now while the outbreak is still happening. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
