Get seen ASAP: If you want to know what disease or diseases you might have, especially if you are concerned about sexually transmitted diseases, you need testing in real life. Many sexually transmitted diseases "travel together." Avoid intercourse until you have had a pelvic exam and STD testing, including herpes and HIV. Get seen right away so you can be evaluated and treated. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I don’t know the cause of your lesions. Local symptoms from a herpes simplex 2 infection usually is seen 2 to 12 days after exposure and consists of a cluster of lesions that look like blisters. The lesions can appear on the penis, anus, labia or cervix and they can spread and coalesce followed by crusting over. The fluid in the lesions is very contagious. Some people contract herpes simplex 2 without any symptoms. ...Read more

I have one big raised bump in my pubic area and one or two small bumps but not in clusters what are the chances that this is herpes?

I have one big raised bump in my pubic area and one or two small bumps but not in clusters what are the chances that this is herpes?

Doubt herpes, but...: This is not likely to be herpes, which generally does not cause sores in hairy areas, especially with the intitial HSV infection. And herpes rarely causes a "big raised bump" anywhere. I'm betting on pimples or folliculitis. But if you remain concerned, or if herpes seems possible because you are at risk for STD (e.g. new or unsafe partner), see a doctor or clinic. Better safe than sorry! ...Read more

If u got herpes could the warts show up on your bladder (under pubic hairs) male?

Herpes and warts: While technically herpes, caused by herpesvirus, and genital warts, caused by HPV virus are not the same entity, both are considered venereal in nature and both can distribute onto the pubic area of a man or woman. For this reason, a condom may actually not protect sexual partners from spread by contact. There are vaccinations to prevent HPV and pills to suppress outbreaks of genital herpes. ...Read more

Hello. I have this blister on my left pubic area. I have it for almost 2 months I think. It hurts when I touch it. Is it a herpes?

Get it checked: The only way to be sure is to let your doctor do a swab in the office. It really won't hurt and will tell you what's going on. It has lasted longer than most herpes, but i'd wait to see what a culture shows to be sure. ...Read more

Bump on crease where leg meet pubic area. Herpes or cyst? Happened right after I shaved

Bump on crease where leg meet pubic area. Herpes or cyst? Happened right after I shaved

Bacterial infection?: It could be a small bacterial infection or ingrown hair. Use warm soaks several times a day and see a doctor if it gets worse. This shaving trend worries me. Besides making people look like jail-bait, it can increase the risk of bacterial infections, including mrsa. I've seen some nasty cases in which men lost parts of their body they wanted to keep. If you don't like pubes, trim, don't shave! ...Read more
