herpes or folliculitis???
its been about 5 months now since the possibility of catching herpes was there for me. I thought I had it up until January, since I kept getting vaginal fissures, consistent itching in the genitals, and abnormal discharge. Then in the middle of January I was diagnosed with bacterial vaginitis, was treated and the vaginal discharge and fissures went away. I also have folliculitis. My main problem is that i still get a couple of little recurring (in the same place) fleshy bumps on the one side of my genitals. At first it's itchy, but then nothing, no pain itching, I would never know they are there if I didn't see it. At first, I thought it was just the folliculitis, but why is it recurring in the same place???! thats what concerning me the most. I had a blood test done at 16 weeks that was negative (IGg test), and I'm sure anti-bodies would be there being that back in october an "initial outbreak" took place, but what the doc said was that the type of lube the guy used on me caused the extremely painful blisters and redness to happen. And the reason why the little bumps on my genitals now concern me is that folliculitis causes pus dont they? Or can they sometimes not?
