Recommended Posts

I had unprotected sex back in feb & march with the same person, over the past week which is 4-5 months later, I started having a burning, irritated feeling in my genitals I then found out I had a UTI which I get very often, about 5 days later I noticed 2 tiny sore looking bumps on my labia and one inside my labia which all were bleeding a little, I have no other symptoms, could it be? I have been married for over 10 yeasr but my husband & I split up for a few months when I was with the other person, would he too have had symptoms by now? Also, the 2 sores on my labis kinds just went away, no oozing or scabs at all, no itching either the sores only hurt when I pressed on them.

sypmtoms vary from person to person

The sypmtoms vary from person to person. Some people have immediate OBs and some never have OBs. It is my understanding that if your bumps are bleeding, then it's not an OB. It should also be a blister, not a regular bump. Sounds more like an ingrown hair to me. You would still need to visit your doc and get tested to be on the safeside. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Does the blister look like a blister you would have on your hand or something? All th pictures I've looked at the sores look so bad.Do herpes sores not bleed?

I also read that the vaginal sores look like the oral sores, is that true?

Most of the photos you will find on the internet are "worst case scenarios." Many folks have outbreaks that look nothing near that bad.

The problem is, nobody here can tell you what your sores are, not even if we could look at them in person. And not even if we were doctors.

Visual diagnosis of herpes is notoriously unreliable because it can look so different from person to person -- and because a lot of other conditions look similar.

The ways to get a more accurate diagnosis are:

  • by getting a lesion swabbed and cultured when one is fresh, or
  • by getting a type specific blood test that checks for IgG antibodies

Doesn't sound typical for herpes, but again, no way anyone here can tell you that for sure.

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
