Itchy bumps inside of my vagina mainly where I shave they look like they have a red head on some of them does this sound like herpes?  I am on my period and it does feel kinda sore there are multiple

Usually herpes has bumps that are clustered/bunched together, and the bumps look like they have water in them almost. Usually this is very painful but not always. I would go get a physical exam. ...Read more

Throat culture: I suggest you please have a regular exam at a clinic where a throat culture should be taken. A treatable infectious process could be picked up with a culture.
