Possibly herpes? Pictures.

Recommended Posts

Hi! So I am kind of a worrier and have routinely gotten tested for STDs ever since I became sexually actively a decade ago. Any slight change in my body and I immediately assume that’s what I’ve had. So far, I’ve come back clean. I’m wondering if my luck might’ve ran out. 

 

I shaved pretty well, so I’m not completely sure if this is razor burn or not. 

I don’t feel sick, and the bumps don’t hurt terribly bad. Like no, they aren’t comfortable but it is no where near unbearable. 

We also used a lot of lube, so I’m wondering if it could be a reaction to that. 

 

I sent a friend who has herpes these pictures and she said it doesn’t look like it, but I’m also not sure at all. 

 

Although I will get tested, I just kind of wanted some insight on whether or not this looks like shaving irritation/ingrown hairs/possible bad reaction to lube..... or herpes. Thank you.

It's a possibility, because they're open sores. I would go get one of them swabbed and tested.

You'll need a swab to be certain, but definitely looks like it to me.   You'll be okay either way.  But be careful about not spreading it around - you have to quarantine that area by not using wash cloths there then elsewhere, etc.

This looks more like folliculitis to me.

All we can do us advise a swab. A trained expert can only be 75% accurate at best.

Why would she have folliculitis there and why would it show up after a sexual encounter?

Thanks everyone. I’m waiting for an appt, they should call me back within 72 hours. It sounds like they’re going to do a UA and blood work? Is that the most accurate way to test because I thought a swab was.
