I have these red what look like hard blisters that have come up in and around my vagina, they are itchy and at times painfull. Is this likely to be herpes?

I have these red what look like hard blisters that have come up in and around my vagina,  they are itchy and at times painfull. Is this likely to be herpes?

Maybe: First of all blisters are not generally hard. Blisters around the vagina are commonly viral and most commonly a form of herpes. If these are recurrent then I would say this is highly likely herpes. If the "blisters" are hard and not fluid containing then not herpes. You should be seen by a doctor at the time they are present. No sex while they are evident. ...Read more

Have sores don't look like herpes on vagina doctor said were from irritation and are healing up with antibiotics is it still likely an std?

Have sores don't look like herpes  on vagina doctor said were from irritation and are healing up with antibiotics is it still likely an std?

Probably not, but...: Assuming your doctor is experienced in recognizing herpes, I see no reason to doubt her diagnosis and advice. However, even the most expert doctors sometimes mistake herpes for other things, and vice versa. No other STD is a likely cause of symptoms like these. If you have other reasons to suspect STD, like a known infected partner, discuss it further with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

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

Unlikely: This sounds more like irritation from shaving. I often recommend not to shave as skin in this area is extremely sensitive, and prone to rash and blister-like lesions. 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

Seems like every time I shave my vagina I get herpes like lesions. Why?

See your doctor.: You should show the lesions to your doctor to make the correct diagnosis. They may be bacterial lesions,which could be from bacterial getting under the skin in the shaved, irritated areas, or just irritations from the shaving. You could also consider not shaving the area to allow them to heal and not recur. ...Read more

Hatd lump on vagina it looks like aboil...herpes?

Probably not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause things like this. Herpes lesions are superficial -- blisters, pimples, and sores that are sort of like "on" the skin. Boils, typical acne, etc well up from below; think of them as starting "in" the skin. This isn't a hard and fast rule, but a single large boil is never herpes. But see a doctor if you remain concerned and/or at risk for STDs. Good luck! ...Read more
