Please help - is this herpes?

Recommended Posts


Initial outbreak months later and only one blister?

I would appreciate any feedback on this. I was dating a guy for a couple of months. He had cold sores on his mouth. I have never developed cold sores on my mouth even though we had lots of kissing. There was one day I really wish didn't happen. We had oral sex... his mouth to me. It only lasted for a few seconds... I hadn't wanted it to happen. Anyways, that was 7 months ago. I just now found a bump ... Right above my clitoris. It wasn't sore or itchy at all. Just a bump. Today, it was crusty and fell off. There is a little wounds underneath, but it isn't sore at all. I haven't experienced any other symptoms. I did just get back from Mexico. There was lots of sand and heat and ... Shaving. Anyways, do you think that it's likely this is genital herpes? It is only one blister from an instance 7 months ago... And I never it cold sores. I thought the cold sore virus spread more easily to your mouth.

I really didnt want this to happen... And he knew it at the time. I'd hate to have lasting effects from this few second nightmare.

      Hello, thank you for your generous donation. I donated on Monday after finding the amazing work that has been done. I got a lot of answers from this forum and I hope more people get involved.  Donation send a great message of the interest that we have for a cure. Thank you and I really believe the cure is in the next couple of years.

      I’m bringing us to 20k; I really believe in the research the Jerome lab is doing and want it to cure everyone.

      I think people are discouraged by past failures but remember in failure, new things are learned and the progress on understanding hsv is increasing. Up until Jerome’s lab devised a way to attack the latent virus in 2012 there was never a way to potentially cure it; now there is. Couple in the advancements in technology and I think there’s more hope now than ever that it can be cured in the near future.

      That's actually a comforting statistic

      Because it is still a non curable threat in community. Whether it's a small group of people who experience the most severe symptoms, they're still people, just like you. Hsv prevalence will only grow due to lack of effectiveness of treatment and eventual resistance of virus. The virus will infect more and more people and this virus will and may affect your quality of life and in some rare cases it may lead to severe complications and blindness, meningitis etc. Last time I checked by 2025, US will have half of its population infected genital herpes. Do you think WOH and health community will like that?
