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 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.

      Hi there. I just got my hands on my test results, but I have 5 different papers and they all say something different (I'm guessing for different test types?) but I'm confused by what I should go by. I'll attach the different pictures in the replies.

      Hello all,
      I’m a female and was just diagnosed GHSV 1 and I’m devastated. I really need someone to talk to about their experience. I’m at the end of my rope with general practitioners and their horrible bedside manner. If one more person spits a statistic at me or dismisses the psychological pain I’m going through, I’m going to lose my mind. Cannot see a psychologist for another week. Seems like nothing will ever be the same. Please help me.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?
