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.

      @clarke53 without a swab that’s a hugely risky call!

      How long has this happened to you? What was swabbed? Results yet?

      Hi all  i have been to a doctor on 4 seperate occasions since I had unprotected sex with a woman who I later found out has herpes . They have said “it doesn’t look” like herpes . My penis always is red , inflamed anabolic has little red pimples on it.  I am constant uncomfort and pain in my gential areas, tingling , fatigue . None of the drs have done a blood test. I have researched DNA testing as they appear more accurate. I saw a dr this week and he took a swab. It’s always on my mind now because I have just started a relationship and don’t know if I should tell her. I’m scared she will run a mile . I haven’t told her because the dr said I was fine . I don’t know what do to do .  Any advice would be appreciated . I have a history with depression and this is adding to it

      @clarke53 why do you think you do not have an asymptomatic genital infection. The mouth sores don’t seem to be herpetic.  What protection do you use genitally?
