It's tough to say whether it's herpes. If those are blisters it would increase the odds that it's herpes but not be definitive. What was your sexual activity prior to those bumps? i.e. are you in a relationship or simply having casual sex?

they first appeared after a former relationship. but it never progressed beyond that. its never been on the inner labia, its always been on the outer lips. i originally believed that it could be poor hygenie (ive had a lot of depression and inability to take actual care of myself. it was very bad.) it improved almost immediately after my hygenie got better but i dont know this is scaring me really bad. after breaking up with that boyfriend i had sex with one other person and never got any follow ups from him. im in a different relationship now and i dont know im just all over the place im sorry.

Yes it is. You can tell by the with under the skin. It will help it not to spread and get worst if you keep baking soda on it. I use a little honey mix I make and top it off with baking soda. It sounds crazy it it helps pull the white toxins out without braking the skin and having the puss get other places. This would be very bad and cause more breakouts. After a week it will because kinda scabby and heal up. Don’t touch it. If you do wash your hands and wash the area with a light soap daily

At this point you're going to need to get tested. You should see a doctor and get those sores swabbed. That's your first step. Don't wait because the ability to swab those "possible" blisters will decrease at some point; i.e. you need to swab them when the blisters are in full bloom.

Presence of hsv antibodies, via an igg blood test, will also tell you whether you have been infected. That test should be taken no sooner than 3 months post exposure. But first see your doctor for a swab and then you can discuss with him the igg test if the swab comes back negative.

Please note that I've had ghsv2 since 1982 and I do just fine.

Sorry if I missed this but you don’t say how it feels? Itching? Pain? 

 

Be sure to not to spread it around in the meantime. Make an appointment and put peppermint oil from the drug store on there while you wait. If you don’t have a regular doctor go to planned parenthood.

You need to have it swabbed but I’d stake a paycheck that that is absolutely herpes

      Hello, 
      So I recently went to my doctor after noticing some spots on my inner thighs, and general genital area. She looks at the spots, and said that they didn't look like herpes and not to worry, but that she would swab one just to be safe. The one that she swabbed was closer to the vaginal entrance, in an area that I thought was a small tear after some rather rough sex. She also gave me a 7 day course of antivirals, that would help if it was herpes. The meds didn't do anything to the majority of the spots, and the one that she swabbed did eventually heal, whether from the medication or from lack of sex, I'm not sure. She called me in for an appointment to tell me that I do, in fact, have HSV2. However, its been almost a month since the spots appeared, the antiviral had no affect, none of them are itchy or painful. I've experienced no tingling sensation, no fever or body aches or anything even remotely resembling flu-like symptoms. My spots look absolutely nothing like the images of herpes I've found online, and not just your general google search. I've checked the CDC website and various other medical websites (no, not WebMD). Does anyone else have herpes outbreaks that look like this? Or have an outbreak with none of the usual symptoms (tingling, pain, blisters, itchiness etc)? I've been reading a lot about herpes and am wondering how accurate the swab tests are/ about false positives. Help??

      Hello everyone,
      I am new to the forum and I joined because I am feeling shitty. I was diagnosed 8 years ago and I contracted it from my then boyfriend who became my husband. He did not tell me he was infected, I doubt he even knew but I am angry now because I found it that he was cheating on me. 
      We are currently going through a divorce and it makes me afraid that I won’t find someone who won’t scorn me. My mood is fine as long as I don’t have an outbreak but as soon as I have one I get depressed, I feel dirty, feel hopeless and it keeps me awake at night. I am so frustrated and I keep asking myself “Why me?”. Has anyone else ever felt this way? How do you cope?
      thanks

      https://imgur.com/a/Wj2dETS Hi all, about 2 days ago I started to feel intense pain on my labia majora, looked down and saw 2 rather large open sores( 1 on either side). The pus (normal looking yellow) from the sores have stopped this morning. A day later, there was a blister that formed in my pubic area. In addition to this, there is skin shedding whenever I wipe after a pee ( it doesn't hurt when I urinate, I don't have a fever).
      My only sexual activity has been with a virgin and it was oral (started April 27th and ended June 8th). I've never seen a cold sore on this guy's mouth so I am unsure of what it could be. I'm on holiday for the next 2 days in a humid tropical country (indonesia, where the hygeine levels are appalling) so I don't know if the climate (dust, shower water) could have irritated the skin, as I've been here for 2.5 weeks already.
      I have been sweating excessively and I forget to immediately take off my sweaty clothes after a day out. Could that be the cause? Somebody please help this is urgent.
