Does this sound like herpes?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I think I’ve been avoiding it and lying to myself to make myself feel better, but I think I have herpes. I had sex 2 weeks ago and we didn’t use protection. 2 days after that I had tonsillitis so I had a fever and all the symptoms of that. However a few days later I found a lump on my vagina. I thought it could be a cyst or an ingrown hair from shaving but then it spread and now I have a few itchy bumps that hurt when I touch them or urine gets on them. Apparently this happens when you have herpes but also when you have razor burns and recently I have been shaving with a very old razor that has rust on it which is why I thought it was a rash. But today my groin glands have become swollen and that is a symptom so I believe I have herpes and I am devastated. Has this ever happened to anyone before or anything similar and do you think it’s a 100% chance of herpes. If anyone has it or is going through something similar please reply😪 btw I will go to the doctors when I have the chance I’m just so busy atm.

    before the bumps appeared did you feel a sort of tingling feeling ? almost like needles poking . you should post pictures if you trully want people to give you an honest opinion of what they think it is .

      no i had no tingling or pain before they appeared i just randomly felt the bump one day. they havent popped or crusted over theyre just small spots with white pus. one of them seems to have a hair growing through it.

    I have a similar problem, 3 lumps appeared to me and one broke only after 15-20 days. Tomorrow I'll go to the doctor and write my results here. I'm in a big dilemma too, and I hope it's not herpes.
