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
