Can’t tell if this is herpes

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Last week I noticed some minor itching in my vulva and an area of exposed skin so I went in to my gyno to have her look at it the next day. The culture test came back negative on Friday but since then I’ve also had some tenderness around my rectum when I wear tight pants or underwear (akin to chafing) and I think I have a slight fever right now. Is this similar to what any of you have experienced with herpes? I’ve never had an outbreak so this would be my first one and I’m kind of freaking out. Any thoughts or advice?

Thanks!

So update: I just took my temperature and it was normal. So now it’s just the irritation around my rectum.

      literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.   i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.   i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores-- give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)
