Herpes or Folliculitis

Posted , 5 users are following.

These past five days have been the most painful for me. I shaved on a friday or saturday, I also had sex Saturday and Sunday, it was painful on the inside and i think it was mostly because i wasnt interested. Tuesday I started having sign of a yeast infection. Wednesday the symptoms got worse and i scratched so bad till the skin broke in some places, so I used queen v(boric acid) suppository to help, which I regret because it says not to use if you have any open skin. Thursday I noticed I had some skin peeling between slips and on labia, which I thought just came from me scratching. That same day I used queen v AGAIN. Friday things looked a little bit was but i still could pee without pain. Saturday morning when I left for school, things looked ok. i went to the bathroom hours later and there green/yellowish bumps all over, I Started to think maybe the boric acid got on the skin and starting eating it. Sunday I went to the emergency room and they told me that it could follicultis or herpes, they tested me for both and now im waiting on results. just fyi, me and my bf have been together for 4 years and have sex every weekend and hes showing no signs of anything. WE've also been using condoms since december because im trying not to get pregnant. I havent been with anyone else and hes said he hasnt either. Hes been with me through this whole process and he thinks my hairs just got infected from me shaving and having a yeast infection at the same time. Im in pain and want to know what this is.image

    Did it look totally normal 1 week ago ? if so then it's the boric acid to make it look so terrible ,sorry for being blunt but it looks scary now. You should go to a Gyno or dermatologist ASAP to figure that out and start a cure.

    If you need a walk in visit tomorrow Dermatologist in NYC go to DR. Altchek in UES , only $100 if you don't have insurance.

      Yes it looked normal. I was fine until the yeast came along. I keep thinking it may be a combination of the yeast down there on top of the getting an infection from shaving

    it could be either. hopefully once you get the swab results youll know for sure. but if there has been no infidelity on either side then id say it was folliculitis or something like that.

    wow, stop shaving immediately, there is something really growing bacteria wise down there, if you are shaving whatever it may be is spreading for sure. go to the gyno urgently.
