Does this look like genital herpes?

Posted , 8 users are following.

I always have problems with tearing during sex. I had a sore on holiday around a week ago and now i have another sore. although the sore I have now I think is from wiping as I have had an upset stomach. imageimageimage

      It's not itchy at all. It is a little bit painful. This is how its progressed over the last few days. I do get cuts often but it is only ever one cut at a time and is usually after sex.

      I haven't seen a doctor. I am booked in tomorrow to see one. I know herpes can look like this but I had another cut just over a week ago which makes me think it could be a bacterial infection of some kind as I am cutting so easily. Can you get herpes straight after the last sore? And can it just be one sore at a time? This was the cut I had a week ago.

      My first outbreak took a while to heal! But now if i ever get any they are like 3-5days!

      You can get back to back flare ups too like that and can just be one sore!

      Friction from sex can bring on a outbreak! But yours may not be herpes! Just looks typical of one!

      You wont know anyways until you are tested!
