Do genital herpes pop like pimples?

Often, yes: But it is more like a burn than a pimple. The characteristic Herpes lesion is a small blister that is fragile and easily ruptures. This exposes the underlying layer of very sensitive skin, which is why it can be very painful. ...Read more

Difficult to say: Here are some facts. A blood filled cyst near the anus is a hemorrhoid. Herpes lesions are blisters or a cluster of blisters that do not have blood in them. They also hurt and itch. Sometimes with a large bowel movement a small tear can occur that then gets infected. So, an infected anal fissure is a rare possibility. But, a pimple is also in that realm. ...Read more

Herpes: These do not sound like herpetic lesions, but the only way in which to be sure is to have them seen by a doctor familiar with these. This cannot be done on the internet, need history and exam. Best wishes. ...Read more

?

Genital bumps: Genital bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without an exam. If the bumps are on the lower abdomen and pubic area, they could be infected hair follicles. STDs usually don't involve the skin of the stomach area. Consider a HealthTap Concierge visit for more personal evaluation. ...Read more
