Sores On Groin
I have small sores on my groin area but im not sexually active, some of the sores when squeezed released some sort of fluid. Please help thanks. ?
See doctor to clear: There are several things that can cause this, and it would be worth seeing a doctor while the sores are present. If you have ever had sex, even if its been a while, a viral cause such as herpes is possible. If not, other causes can be staph infections, fungal infections such as jock itch, or cyst problems like hydradenitis. Staph infections can get bad quickly and need antibiotics, so see a doc! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After new partner I've had frequent herpes prodrome symptoms but never lesions,sores,etc. Swollen groin nodes, itch, tingles, sore back. What to do?
Doctor can check: If a patient sees no lesions, it is hard to guess whether or not any symptoms are from herpes. Her doctor can help, perhaps by doing blood tests for herpes antibodies. If symptoms are happening often, perhaps a trial of preventive medication can be done, if the blood antibodies are positive for herpes. The partner's antibodies should be checked too, because one can only catch herpes from a person. ...Read more

1. From childhood, had sores in mouth, blisters in groin region, underams, and pimples.Doctors used to give b-complex, over years effectiveness went down. Recent thyroid tests didn't show any problem.
See dermatologist: I suspect you have some type of chronic hereditary skin condition, something like histiocytoiss x, just to name one. I would urge you to see a dermatologist, perhaps even a pediatric one despite your age, and discuss skin biopsy with them to see if condition can be identified once and for all. Only then can appropriate treatment be initiated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have red bumps in my groin area that are appearing to crust over and then two sores on the right side of my public area what could this be?
Is my herpes still active if my groin lymph nodes are still swollen. My sores have been gone for over 2 weeks. They arent swollen as much.
Brief sex 4 days ago. Today saw one painless large olive sized lymph node on left groin. No other symptoms or sores noticed. Is this herpes? Or what?
Not herpes: Almost certainly not herpes. There is no STD or other infection likely to cause lymph node enlargement in 4 days, especially without other symptoms like sores or irritation. The new lump in your groin -- whether really a lymph node or something else -- probably has nothing to do with the sexual event 4 days earlier. See a doctor if it persists, if any other symptoms, or you remain concerned. ...Read more
