Herpes Or Folliculitis? Bumps Around My Anus Area

Sep 22, 2014

I discovered these irritating bumps around my anus area that soon developed into tender ulcers.. so I went to the doctor to have them examined and she told me she couldn't really tell if it was herpes being the fact the bumps were scattered and they are each at the base of a hair follicle... so she swabbed them and sent them off for a lab test and I'm currently waiting for my results by the end of this week... I've never experienced anything like this before and the only symptoms I have is itching and I do believe I can feel my lymph nodes in my groin are swollen... has anyone else ever experienced anything like this and what does it sound like to you?

Vaginal Health :: Is It Herpes Or Folliculitis? Bumps On My Labia

I have been with my current boyfriend now for 4 years. I have never had any symptoms of herpes, not even a cold sore on my mouth. My boyfriend has also been clean. About 6 days ago I noticed a two small bumps on my labia majora right in the hairline then there was another small bump down on my labia minora again in the hairline and on the same side as the one on the upper part of the labia. I of course began freaking out. I've never had a STD scare before and I immediately thought the worst. The bumps were slightly itchy, red, and it looked as though they had a white, almost puss filled, kind of top. I went to the health clinic 2 days later, the soonest I could get in, and the nurse told me it didn't look like any herpes case she had seen before, but she swabbed me to do a culture just in case. I'm still waiting for the results and the waiting is driving me insane. I've read every article I can find on herpes and how I could possibly have contracted it since both me and my boyfriend have been faithful to each other, and before I was with him I was with the same man for 5 years who I know was clean. I know it is possible for the disease to lay dormant for years, but still it just seems odd that it would wait this long to appear and my current boyfriend has not had any bumps or cold sores since we’ve been together.
I stumbled upon the condition folliculitis and I’m wondering if it could possibly be that. I do shave down there regularly. I’ve had razor burn before but nothing like this. Currently the two bumps that were on my labia majora have turned into a hard lump underneath the skin and the one on my labia minora has also turned into a lump under the skin. I’ve never had a cyst or boils before so I’m not really sure what I’m looking at. There is no puss coming out of anything, but they are painful when irritated. I am able to go without underpants once I am home, but during the day I have been wearing cotton underwear and I sit at a desk. I think this irritates the one on my labia majora because of where it is located so it is normally sore.
I have no other symptoms of herpes. No burning urination, swollen lymph nodes, or any sickness. I’m also not in a great deal of pain or anything like that. I’m just really unsure of what is going on and the symptoms of both herpes and folliculitis sound so similar. Folliculitis makes more sense to me, but then again that’s because I really don’t want to have herpes. There is one other issue I’m having that I can’t find online at all. It’s kind of hard to explain, but there is a white area in the fold of my skin that is above my clitoris. It’s not puss and it doesn’t hurt. I cannot find any pictures or descriptions of this online. I’m not sure if it could be caused from the large hard lump that is near it on my labia majora or not.
I’m not able to find out my results for at least another 4 days and I’m going to make a appointment with my gyno for next week as well, but I’m looking for any opinions or advice as I’m currently driving myself crazy with wondering and researching.

Irritated Cyst Or Herpes? Bumps On Pubic Area

My vagina has been itching for several months now, anywhere from the pubic area to the vaginal opening. I noticed a few bumps on the inside of my lip, right where the bartholin's cyst can be upseated. They were itchy so I took a warm bath with some epsom salt and went to bed. I woke up to pain there and when I looked I saw one of the bumps had popped open and was now very sore to the touch and itches like crazy! None of my previous itching had caused a sore. I'm beginning to panic because I started looking online and of course herpes is the first thing I found. It doesn't seem like herpes based on what I have seen, I have had these little bumps before and they have never ruptured or caused any pain. I'm wondering if it is herpes or if maybe it could be an irritated cyst?

STDs :: Folliculitis? Red Bumps With White Heads

About a week ago I had sex with some random woman. We did use protection and it didn't break (I checked). A little less than 24 hours later I noticed red bumps all on my pubic hair. Some have white heads... They don't hurt or even itch that bad. I have no other symptoms.. But a week later it seems to spreading a little to the other side... Is that even possible die Folliculitis? Or could it just be some of the hair follicles weren't as irritated and didn't show up for like 4 days... I went to the doctor and they put me on dicloxacillin and I've been using bacitracin. But don't really see results... Could a std show up that quickly and with no other symptoms?

Herpes Or Folliculitis - Scrotum Dry, Irritated And Red

I was naked, she was in active wear shorts. We grinded a lot and then she told me she has herpes. The next day I go training in sweat pants without underwear and thought I started to chafe. It's been 2 weeks and the skin on my scrotum and just above my pelvis seems dry, a little irritated, reddish. No bumps but I get tingles at times, pinching and sometimes a testicle with throb for a second. It doesn't look bad at all but it feels kinda crappy and the timing couldn't be worse. Today I noticed that the smell from my scrotum was kind of sour, dunno if it's from the skin being dry and irritated.

Is It Folliculitis, Vulvodynia, Fordyce Or Herpes?

So my husband and I have been separated a few months but had a sexual encounter recently. I know he and I both were HSV-2 negative, but he has HSV-1 rarely breaks out. I noticed last night a sharp pinch in one spot at the top of the vulva, above the good of the clitoris in the area that has hair growth. It doesn't itch, just the pinching feeling that pulsates with a VERY faint tingling that was in my whole lower body and throbbing, dull pain accompanying it. I have fordyce spots that are small on the inner parts of the labor minora and larger subcutaneous "bumps" (I'm guessing follicles or fordyce) that I have on both labias that I have had since I was very little. I also shave and we had sex after I'd shaved so, as usual, I got a LOT of ingrown hairs which are painful when popping or digging out. I noticed the area was pin pointed to one spot so I had to search and at one point I thought I had it but turned out I was squeezing the wrong area/small bump. Then when I found the area, I squeezed it and then plucked hairs I though were associated with the pain. It was mainly red-looking but no swelling came about until after squeezing. This morning the pain was still there but then it slowly went away by noon. I then checked it out an it was raw from the plucking and squeezing, but I also had 1 small bump in both areas I had squeezed. I squeezed it again because the bump (only) was a little tender and clear puss/blood came out and then the skin was easily pulled off from the bump. It now feels better and doesn't hurt really, even when I was trying to check if I got all the hair in it with tweezers. I asked my "husband" if he'd been with anyone since we split and come to find out he's been with many women and so now I am worried that I may have contracted HSV-2. We mainly just performed oral and fingered/rubbed me and we only had sex for less than a minute, which he insisted on wearing his boxers durring. I guess my questions are:

1. How likely would it be to contract it if he was either about to break out or was healing (I'm assuming since he didn't want to remove boxers and u couldn't see pubic area)?

2. Do the symptoms I am having sound like herpes? (I have no swollen lymph nodes, aching, nausea, appetite loss, etc.)

3. If I performed oral and (lets say/hope) the infected area wasn't anywhere that I touched, how likely could I get oral HSV-2?

4. Are herpes blisters a white-colored blister or are they like a TB type test bubble, clear and very noticeable?

Herpes Or Folliculitis Or Ingrown Hair After Shaving

I was shaving one day with a razor, then two days later i noticed a couple of bumps by my grown. two of them had a white head and i popped them.. just once though. it's kind of crusty... i don't know why, maybe because i tan and my skin is dry? but i haven't been sexually active, and have had one parent the last year, that i know doesn't have anything...they do not itch, hurt, burn, or anything... i did have some vaginal discharge but it was white and clear milky kind of, just leak out of me for a second or so.. i don't get burning sensations when i pee or anything. but sometimes i do get itchy but not only on my vagina... when i get an itch down there i just itch it for a second and get itchy somewhere else like my back or something.

Vulva Area Burning With Bumps

I have been dating my boyfriend for over a year and we both lost our virginity to each other and neither of us, have cheated. However, one month ago, I noticed a line of bumps from my vaginal opening to the lips. They're really small and they worried me a lot at first. However, being with only one man, I figured it couldn't be anything transmitted sexually. But, recently, it's been burning when I go to bathroom, or even when I'm just sitting down. I'm just worried that it's something I can't get rid of. My boyfriend did have a wart on his hand, and I'm just scared it could have transmitted from that?

Pimples, Bumps, And Cyst On Shaving My Bikini Area

When i shave my bikini area i get really bad pimples and bumps. I know this is extremely disgusting. I use shaving cream, and a new razor. I tried shaving with the hair like some other sites told me to, but too much hair is left, i simply can't shave like that. The only way i can get rid of all of the hair is if i shave against it. I soak it with warm water for at least 15 minutes, then apply the shaving cream, then use a new razor, and afterwards i'll dry it well and usually apply petroleum jelly and some kind of antibacterial cream to stop the bumps or wipe it with alcohol. My pubic mound is now covered with pimple scars and is discolored, is there anyway i can make my vagina look normal again?

Infectious Diseases :: BUMPS/BLISTERS On Bikini Area Tingling YEAST STD?

i had unprotected sex on SUNDAY sept 1(pull out), plus oral and protected a week or two before that.

***note: it happened on burning man, with no shower, little water, a lot of sun, and i knew this guy was drinking a lot and taking drugs and not sleeping for a week. it was the end of the day 2 for me and i took a small amount of MDMA that day.]

5-7 days later i was feeling tenderness and a little tingling burning pain, but thought it was my period, which was unusually heavy as i`m on birth control.

MONDAY sept 9 i knew something was wrong. the tingling got worse and i went to some doctor i knew for blood test and he also gave me DOXYCYCLINE (he s not a gynecologist) i also asked for ACYCLOVIR in case have herpes. i started taking them at 4pm

TUESDAY morning i threw up with yellow stuff and had a lot of green/yellow/brown watery then cottage cheese discharge, which became yellow watery and by the end of the day pink. pain got worse

WEDNESDAY morning i went to free clinic, where they told me most likely it CHLAMYDIA or GONORREA, told me to continue doxy and gave me shot for gonorrea

THURSDAY i noticed the discharge got water and thicker, pain was still there. in the afternoon after a long flight and traveling i noticed red single BUMPS on my skin in my bikini area, between ******* and vagina and above the clitoris, some of the hurt, some itch, not considerably. 7 in total, plus one on the labia, just not sure if that`s a bump. the next day 2 of them had water inside. i immediately texted my friend i knew he has herpes and he said it looked like it 99% and we now can be in relationship ha! i wasn't sleeping all night, googling and googling, pain seemed to increase and the bumps itched a little bit.

FRIDAY i went to my gynecologist and he said it`s not herpes(the culture text will be ready in 10 days), not even STD, but YEAST. He said you are not supposed to be treated without knowing the reason and doxycycline is old and not supposed to be taken for a week but for 2 days. also the std test will show only in 2 weeks after the exposure.

stopped taking meds and taking xre of my yeast now, hoping for the best. and i got my lesson!!

Herpes :: Bumps Down There - Got My IUD Changed

It all started 3 weeks ago, I went to get my IUD changed (this is my 3rd, all changed at the time they were supposed to be) I didn't have any problems with this one either. I went camping 2 weeks later, still no problems, however it was hot out, so I was sweating a lot. I woke up one morning and I had a burning sensation when I went to pee. I thought maybe it was a uti, I had a bladder infection once before. Anyway it was still hurting two days later so I went to women's health services. (They also did my IUD). So the dr said I have herpes. The thing is, I have been with my husband for 10 years, neither of us have cheated, I have never had an outbreak before. I didn't have a fever or flu symptoms, I had no other symptoms either, I can't tell if I have bumps down there. I don't understand how this could happen.

Herpes :: Diagnosed HPV 1 - Why Genital Area Symptoms When Negative HPV 2

So back in October, I had a horrific and painful outbreak of herpes, both near my genital area and my mouth area. I was diagnosed with HPV-1, but not HPV-2 (swab test). I recently got into a relationship and I've told my boyfriend what I had and we had to be careful. Just recently, I finished school and from the stress, I was developing mouth sores, and now all of a sudden, I noticed one bump on the outer area of my vagina (I don't know the actual terminology, but it's on the "hairy" part) that popped up yesterday, thinking it was an ingrown hair because I shaved, but now it's looking more like a blister than anything. It hasn't spread yet and I'm hoping it doesn't. My discharge is a bit more creamy than usual, but there's no burning while urinating or pain near the vagina. It seems normal, just not the bump. The mouth ulcers are nearly gone and I haven't been sick and I don't start my period for another 2 weeks. Last time him and I had sex was this past Sunday and we used protection. My question is, if I'm diagnosed with HPV-1, why am I developing herpes in the genitalia region? Isn't it only supposed to be on the mouth?

STD :: Red Pimple Like Bumps All Over My Thighs, Herpes?

For the last two months now, I have had red pimple like bumps all over my thighs. (Just like pimples on a face, are spread out) They are red, about the size of a pimple, and have white heads. The same puss in pimples comes out but they are harder to pop. About a month ago I got them, popped them, and they all seemed to clear up. Now their back, they are very itchy and painful. There's probably around ten on each thigh, after they pop they bleed and then scab over. I heard other people's questions that it sounds similar too, but it also sounds like herpes. I always pop them and touch the puss, but it never spreads like herpes does. (At least not yet.) herpes or no?! Please help I am 19 year old male and this really worries me!!!!! If it's herpes j have no clue what I am gonna do as I am a first responder!

Red Bumps On Vagina - Razor Burn Or Herpes?

Alright so I went to the dr two weeks previous to having sex with a new partner and I was clean. I had pretty rough sex with this new partner a week ago and the lubrication wasn't very effective it was pretty painful. then developed a chest cold a few days later which I thought was normal because everyone in my family had been sick at the time. Well a day or two ago (a week after intercourse)I noticed bumps near my vagina. Now I shave so I figured it to be razor bumps. But I also noticed something that looked like a tear at the entrance to my vagina and I assumed it to be from the rough intercourse. At any rate it's probably too soon to tell but there's only three small red bumps and no head to them. They aren't painful to touch but very itchy. The tear is both itchy and slightly painful. I'm headed to the doctor in the next few days because I'm simply freaking out, but if anyone could take a look and give me some advice for ease of mind that would be great.
