What are sores on the vagina signs of if you're still a virgin?

What are sores on the vagina signs of if you're still a virgin?

Possibly herpes: Genital sores in a virgin could indicate that she had her boyfriend perform oral sex on her. If he carries the herpes simplex virus 1, which typically causes cold sores, he could have infected her with the virus. While it used to be HSV-2 that caused genital herpes, HSV-1 is more frequently seen now as the cause for genital herpes. A blood test will reveal the diagnosis. Or it's from shaving. ...Read more

Im a virgin and i have big painfull sores on my vagina what do i do?

Vaginal Sores: This sounds like it is Herpes even though you are a virgin. Now days this could be Herpes Simplex 1 the same virus that causes cold sores if you touched your vagina after touching an area with a cold sore or if someone touched you who has Herpes either 1 or 2 after touching one of their lesions. You don't have to have had intercourse for this to occur. See a doctor for treatment. ...Read more

Keep getting sores around vagina, but I've tested negative for herpes, what could this be?

Keep getting sores around vagina, but I've tested negative for herpes, what could this be?

Tricky: dermatologic conditions are difficult when not seen. I can say that many herpes tests are not very good. The antibody test, and growing the virus could miss a large percent of the people with the virus. Looking for the particular viral DNA or protein are much better tests, but still have to get the right time when the virus is popping out or the test is negative (and sore lasts longer than virus) ...Read more

If you were to use neosporin it may lead you to becoming sensitive to the medication. It might also irritate the delicate tissues. ...Read more
