If the individual lesions persist, let your physician know at your next office visit. ...Read more

Would internal meatus herpes be easily visible? Have small red pimple inside meatus that Itches all day, no pain. Received unprotected oral. Have UTI

Would internal meatus herpes be easily visible? Have small red pimple inside meatus that Itches all day, no pain. Received unprotected oral. Have UTI

May be herpes: Herpes can initially cause itching. That's often followed by a blister that ulcerates. May cause pain, especially on
urinating. The only way to tell if HSV is to do a swab of some fluid from the sore. Since you were able to see the "pimple" I'm not sure why you are asking if it easily visible. The doctor can use a magnifying glass to view it if needed. Best wishes. Always use a condom. ...Read more

Have a rash that looks like tiny pimples (they're spreadout) all over body only itches at first, turns into sores. Hubby and child have too. Seen 2 different doctors and 2 different diagnosis. Help!!!

It would help...: ...to know what diagnoses the other docs gave you. Some conditions just have to "run their course." For example, chicken pox can start as tiny blister-like bumps which then become ulcers or sores. With proper cleansing and voiding scratching or rubbing, most of them heal w/out scars. Herpes can act the same way but, except in infants, usually are localized to 1 area. Need more info! ...Read more

I think I have pimples in my vagina that causes bleeding when I scratch them because it itches me. I have been having this for 4 yrs now I need help?

Get tested.: Vagina's do not typically get pimples. I am more concerned that what you are describing can be an infection like herpes. These can be little pimple like lesions that hurt or itch. They can bleed when scratched. A simple swab (viral culture of rapid test) can tell you if it is herpes. If not, having a look by a doctor can set you down the right path to cure. ...Read more
