Could this be herpes?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I need some help. 6 days ago I found a bump on the outer lip of my vagina. I had just got otc medicine for what I thought was a yeast infection the day before. I found the bump and kind of freaked out that it was herpes but it looked like it had a hair in it. For five days it didn't change at all. It was a little sore and red. Today the sixth day after I noticed it I can clearly see the hair in it and I've read herpes doesn't have hair in it. My only concern is for two days now my left leg has hurt down to my feet. It comes and goes. I have extreme anxiety and I know we can cause ourselves to feel symptoms we don't really have when you have anxiety. Now that I'm not worried about the bump I was looking at my inner thigh and saw a very tiny mark that doesn't hurt at all is flat on the skin and just kind of looks like a patch of dry or chafed skin. It doesnt hurt or itch. If I wasn't already freaked out about herpes I wouldn't pay any attention to it. I'm just panicking because my leg hurts. It's mainly only when I think about it. When I fall asleep and wake up I have no pain until I realize I'm not in pain then it comes back. I can't sleep because I'm so scared. I've been looking up herpes on the Internet for a week now and it's all I think about because I'm so scared. If anything, this would be my initial first outbreak so wouldn't it be severe? I've had no fever no swollen groin lymphnodes. My vagina is still slightly sore but it's possible that was from the yeast infection and I also got my period in the middle of all this. I've also had some discharge not alot but some that smelled again I think from a yeast infection. Is it possible I'm just freaking myself completely out?

I would think you are freaking out a little bit too much based on the symptoms.

What was your sexual history on the 2 weeks leading into the appearance of the sore?

I haven't had sex for 3 weeks and 3 days. We used a condom every time and he hasn't had genital herpes outbreaks. It's been At least 6 weeks since I received any oral sex and it had been a month before any of this started happening. I'm not sure how long the very small smooth painless patch has been there, like I said I never would have noticed it if I wasn't panicking. My leg has hurt for two days now. My vagina doesn't hurt and if it wasn't for my leg pain I'm pretty sure I wouldn't feel anything at all. The pain is happening right now but I've been worried about it all night. Like I said it didn't really hurt today and only hurts bad when I think about it.

Do you know if he has H? If so what type? Maybe you should get tested?

      @MikeHerp what? That’s the article you put up in response? Thats fraudulent and we all demand an apology. You cannot go around saying that half of people with HIV have it because they have HSV? Jesus Lord man, you need to pull it together, I thought you actually had some evidence. But no you’ve just got paranoia. You simply like to use fear to spread your message. Also HSV is not the major cofactor in HIV infections. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are much, much stronger cofactors than HSV, multiple times so. But why let these simple facts get in the way of a bit of propaganda! Maybe we should all direct our funds to eliminating chlamydia according to your logic?!? Also you have not corrected your posts around FHC and viral research. Please do it quickly before you destroy any credibility in the article if it hadn’t already.

      Yes it is, did you actually read the thread and their other posts? Regardless this is a real life test.  The OP is ready to commit suicide if he has herpes impacting his anus. Based on negative swabs, negative PCR tests and the fact that herpes may not even be able to cause theses symptoms - are you prepared to make the call that he has genital herpes and it is causing the symptoms? Or is there room to doubt? Time to man up.

      And he eventually realised that his HSV-1 was oral and the redness from another cause went away. It is doubtful that anyone’s redness in that article was due to herpes, even those who have actually tested positive. This is a great lesson for @DJwah as you can see people get obsessed over herpes except those who actually have it.  That leads to the Henry Ford saying. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don’t, you’re right!

      @DJwah, here is a forum where someone says they have redness in the glans and they are also HSV1 positive  https://patient.info/forums/discuss/herpes-2-igg-test-3-1-569144
