Is this an outbreak or just a shaving nic?

Recommended Posts

I shaved down there like 3 days ago, and yesterday I looked there and it looked like a small red cut that possibly irritated due to shaving, but today I felt kind of uncomfortable down there like kind I cut myself shaving down there, and now it just looks like 1 little spot, i'm wondering if that is a herpes cut or is it because of shaving? I put some oil of oregano and feels better I had the first primary outbreak around January 11, but I felt no discomfort down there up until I nicked myself shaving down there. Please what do you guys think? Should I worry? I don't want this to be a herpes cut, shaving cut is what I want :(

It's absolutely possible that you cut yourself shaving, but there is no way to know for sure until you get tested-either a swab or blood culture by your doctor. Only a medical professional can tell you for sure-but don't stress yourself out too much! There are plenty of other conditions, such as a cut shaving, that could be the cause. Good luck!
