HERPES

Posted , 5 users are following.

So that soft bump thingy turned into a sore/ulcer... Idk how to feel right now. It is what it is I guess. Not really feeling like going to the Dr today as I already know what it is!!!

    I never saw your original post on this discussion, but wouldn't you want to go to the doctor to begin some kind of treatment so things don't get worse?

    I don't think you do know what it is.  It can be very hard to diagnose herpes from visual inspection, even for doctors.

    You're doing the right thing seeing a doctor though, and I hope it isn't herpes.  If it is (and right now, I suspect it probably isn't), then this forum may help:

    Leisions from bumps. Sounds, it is not herpes. Meet your doctor. If you perform a swab test, it is conclusive. Relax.

    I ended up going. I took a blood test and I think you call it a culture when they get fluids from the sore? But I get my results in 2 weeks. Thanks for the advice guys.

    I know its been along time. So my results came back and it was negative for herpes and any other diseases. But turns out I have chronic bv pain, due to iud, and folliculitis (Sorry I know I didn't spell it right) but the bumps have cleared up with the antibiotics doc gave me. Thank you all for helping me out. Lol I was really crying everyday and night for barely nothing
