Probably not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause firm bumps, and never causes any kind of bump that persists more than a day or two without changing quickly into blister/pimples and then open sores. The only STD that causes firm painless bumps is genital warts. If you continue in doubt about the cause of this, see a doctor soon for proper diagnosis. Good luck! ...Read more

I have one big raised bump in my pubic area and one or two small bumps but not in clusters what are the chances that this is herpes?
Doubt herpes, but...: This is not likely to be herpes, which generally does not cause sores in hairy areas, especially with the intitial HSV infection. And herpes rarely causes a "big raised bump" anywhere. I'm betting on pimples or folliculitis. But if you remain concerned, or if herpes seems possible because you are at risk for STD (e.g. new or unsafe partner), see a doctor or clinic. Better safe than sorry! ...Read more
What is there to do when u are having a herpes breakout? this isnt the first severe one.. no bumps yet but the bad itching has returned.
Noticed one single bump on ghe under side of penis and it was irritatiolng so i popped it and white puss came out. could it be herpes?
Not herpes: Almost certainly not herpes; sounds like a pimple. Herpes lesions are very superficial, not a red bump in the skin, and you can't squeeze out pus, And although recurrent herpes outbreaks can show up as single lesions (if you've had it a long time), the first infection almost always causes multiple superficial painful blisters and sores. So keep hands off, let it heal, and don't worry further. ...Read more
