A 21-year-old female asked:
Cut myself shaving on mons pubis, bled profusely, & resulted in a sore. do herpes sores bleed? no blister, sore was only "open" for a night, tweezed a few hairs out of it it, now it is dry and pink and looks almost like razor burn, just bigger.

Shaving injury: What you are describing sounds like a shaving injury. A herpes lesion usually does not bleed. If you felt yourself cutting the skin with the razor then this is the most likely explanation. If you are concerned see and Obgyn for an examination
