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?

      Thank you Slkxx. I want to talk to someone I trust but I am so afraid if I tell my best friend she will tell her husband, which is understandable. I completely trust her to not judge me but if her husband finds out his best friend is an ex of mine and I just don't want this to get around our group of friends. I have been lucky in the fact that the guy who gave it to me has been there for me but it isn't the same. Confiding in him is just making his own struggle more difficult as he feels terrible for what happened but he did not have any bad intentions. As it turns out finding out led to answering a lot of questions he has had about other health issues he had. So in a weird way this happening may actually help him in the long run with giving him an avenue for treatment. I don't want to pile onto his issues even though he has caused mine because at the end of the day he is a good guy who had no idea what was happening. I'm so glad you were able to talk to your friend and I truly hope the suicidal thoughts become a thing of your past. I am here if you need another ear.

      Various reasons are possible, including: genetics, immune system, triggers (e.g. stress), lack of nutrition/exercise, bad luck, etc. No one person has the exact same experience.  Have you tried antivirals?
