Herpes or ingrown hair?

Recommended Posts

Lopska

Had unprotected sex with someone ive know for a while, not a total random, the hours leading up to it i did clip my pubic hair, not straight to the skin but quite clean, i dont want to go asking her incase im just being anxious (its happened before in the past, history of anxiety) wondering if this is herpes or just an ingrown hair?

This happened on saturday and these ingrown hairs or herpes? showed up Tues-Wed. Also had a bad headache upon waking up on tues-wednesday if thats related lol

I did "pop" one (the other one didnt have a head to pop) and clear liquid came out, not yellow at all and also some blood, one of them feels like it has pus deep in the skin, not ready to be popped, kind of like the ones you get on your face which are swollen and have no head but u can feel it raising the skin.

Its not itchy what so ever, just hurts if i press against them or put pressure.

went to doctor, told him story, showed him.

He immediately said it was folliculitis and prescribed me keflex which is a antibiotic and said it is not a STD/Herpes.

Relief.
