Herpes as a virgin?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I went to a doctor to check a infected pimple I had down there and she also looked at one bump I had ( which was probably there for at least 3 weeks or a month w no change) and told me it might be herpes... but the problem is that I'm a complete virgin! I never had any sort of oral (given or received) or skin to skin contact either.  


I did have a bump appearing in my left labia a few times before and  went to a doctor and she told me it was folliculitis. Just a day after I went to this doctor ( that told me I may have herpes) I went to my first doctor and she looked at everything again ( even with a magnifying glass) and she said she couldn't see anything that looked like herpes to her. I also went the next day to a third doctor ( a dermatologist especialized in STIs this time) and he looked and said that didn't see anything either  and taking the fact that I'm a virgin,  he didn't think it was herpes. What do you guys think? What are the odds of a total virgin get genital herpes?  Taking the fact that I never had sex, wouldn't it be more wise to look at other options first before diagnose someone with herpes? I did take a blood test  ( Herpes I and II LgM LgG and  the results aren't out yet), but taking into account that this exame doesn't especify which type of herpes I may have,I'm terrified of get a positive for herpes and they all assume it's down there ( even tho HSV 1 is so easily spreaded, and a lot of ppl have it even w/o symtomps). What should I do? What can I do to know if I have genital herpes?

      thanks for the answer. I went to a dermatologist about a day or two after the first doctor and he said he couldn't see anything that looked like herpes or could be swabbed. Does herpes heal this fast? As a virgin, I'm just scared of being diagnotised with a STI w/o had sex.
