Think I GH on My Birthday

Recommended Posts

WorriedLikeWhoa

Hello!

I have a doctor's appointment on Monday, but I'm beyond freaking out about this and would like some advice. At this point, I just want to know yes or no. I know no one can diagnosis over the internet, but I would really appreciate whether this sounds like GH or if anyone has had experiences like this.

Two days ago I noticed a small blister-like bump in the upper-right portion of my pubic hair area. I shave and get ingrown hairs occasionally, but they normally look like pimples and never blisters. (I haven’t shaved in the few days before the bump.) The bump was slightly red and did not itch or hurt, and there were no other bumps besides this one. Thinking it was just some weird ingrown hair, I popped it and some (not a lot) clear fluid came out. Sorry if this is TMI! I did not see a hair and grew concerned. There was a rougher patch of skin behind the blister. I poked at it and there was a hair under this rough patch of skin.

Since then I've been cleaning it periodically with hydrogen peroxide and have kept it covered with a Band-Aid. Yesterday and today it is more of a sore. I don't know if it is an open sore from Herpes descriptions I've read. Sometimes when I change band-aids, I notice the sore/whatever it is left a very small amount of light reddish-yellow fluid on the band-air. It don't know this is an open sore. It still doesn't itch or hurt. I have no other symptoms other than this, although my arms and legs have been unusually itchy today.

I'm 24 and have had several partners this past year. They've said (for what it's worth) that they are clean, and I always insisted on using condoms, but not until we actually have sex. If a guy was infected with something, it might have rubbed against me before we have sex. Timing wise, this seems to be inline with the traditional first outbreak of Herpes, since the last time I had sex was four days before the bump appeared. This would also mean I got Herpes on my birthday. Worst birthday present ever.

Thanks for any help you can give!!

sounds like an infected hair follicle, keep putting peroxide on it in time it will clear up, and quit messing with it..just dab it with peroxide and leave the scab alone..

Thanks for the advice! I've stopped messing with it but am still keeping the band-aid on just in case.

I'm hoping it is an infected hair follicle. When I googled that, most of the pictures were of pimple-like bumps. Is it common for infected hair follicles to blister?

Good news! I went to my Gyno for my yearly check up and she said she was confident the sore I have is from an irritated ingrown hair. She didn't run any tests though, so should i get a blood test done in 4 months or so to be sure?

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
