I have small tiny bumps near my vagina and around my butt is it genital herpes or folliculitis? What is the difference please help
Doctor can evaluate: Folliculitis usually affects a larger area of skin than the small spot that a herpes sore affects. Folliculitis is tiny pustules where the hair follicles are. Herpes makes tiny blisters, in a cluster, very close together. Herpes blisters (vesicles) break open with some clear or yellowish fluid, not pus like in folliculitis.

If you have a single pimple-like lesion, an "infected pore" is much more likely than herpes. ...Read more
I have what looks like genital herpes on the upper part of my vagina hidden underneath hair. They dont hurt but I popped one and it bled. What do I do?
Doubt herpes: Good news: unless this is a recurrence of a problem previously diagnosed as herpes, I doubt that's what you have. Lesions deeper in the skin that produce pus or blood rarely are herpes. Also, herpes outbreaks are relatively uncommon in hair bearing areas. My guess is folliculitis or pimples; folliculitis is especially likely if some lesions are around a hair. But see a doctor if uncertain. ...Read more
