He's my only sexual partner & he's same. Unprotected.I have vaginosis.I got 2 lumps on genital area.Sore&red, 1 has white head.Herpes?!he doesn't have.

See doctor: If he has never had another sexual partner, then it is unlikely you have genital herpes. However, there are two other possibilities: 1) he could be lying or 2) it could be oral herpes which can be transmitted down there if you had oral sex with each other. The vaginosis just may be irritation from having sex. In any event, see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Ingrown hair?: It's possible it's an ingrown hair, especially if you shave down there at all, but even if you don't it could be. It could also theoretically be a small cyst. Both can be painful. I would suggest you have your doctor take a look at it for a more formal diagnosis and that way you'll be able to have a proper treatment plan to get rid of it. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

See your doctor: If bumps reoccur, you may want to see your doctor. Often times, these bumps are normal and could be a result of blocked hair follicle. You may want to monitor when they appear, for instance, if they occur around the time you shave. If they persist and instead become bigger, red, and painful, they could be infected and require treatment. Your doctor can rule out other causes as well. ...Read more

If : If the area is infected you will need antibiotics, and possibly a procedure called an I&D (incision and drainage). Otherwise, you could try warm compresses to the area three times a day, if it drains on its own, apply an antibacterial ointment to the area twice a day and monitor. If it does not improve see your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
