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?

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
