Can I upload a picture and have someone weigh in on whether or not the bumps on my vaginal lips look like herpes?

Picture v. exam

Head-mouth-lips
Pictures tend to be grainy and are never as good as an exam. Furthermore, pictures sent over the internet may have the chance (even if remote) of being misused by demented people, especially of the genital areas, so any picture you send would be at your own risk. Best to get the area examined in person, and a confirmatory blood test or biopsy of the lesion could be obtained. Best wishes.

Varies

Fever
Herpes of the genital area can just be a reddened area but classically is a small group of clear blisters. This area is paiful, tingles and can get crusty.
