Infection? Boil? Pimple? Herpes? :(

I plan to go see a doctor as soon as I can...just want your thoughts on what this could be... † †So recently (with 2.5weeks) I had the stomach flu...which caused my period to be late by 4 days - I confirmed I'm not pregnant also.

With all of that within a span of 2 weeks, I was pretty stressed. I got a couple pimples on my face & inside my left inner thigh....or so I thought?

So the bump I had in my inner thigh...I thought was a pimple. It didn't bother me much, so I never really looked at it (stupid me). Few days ago it started to itch, so I scratched it & it popped...but it started to bleed.†

I looked at it this yesterday morning after my shower...now it looks like a hole! It's freaking me out now because I have no idea what it is...won't be able to see doctor til next week. †Once in awhile it bleeds - not a lot. It's not noticeable until I put a tissue over it & apply pressure. †It hurts if I touch it...other than that, doesn't bother me much.†

I am sexually active - but haven't had sex for about 2.5 weeks (from when I got the stomach flu). †I do also shave down there, but not sure if that makes any difference...†Now a couple days later I found another one kinda in the same area but toward the middle - I haven't touched or popped it...kind of just letting it hopefully heal.

Any thoughts until my doctors appt next week?

It sounds like an ingrown hair. It's common, because of the thighs rubbing together to get ingrown hairs. And they can be painful and itchy and look like large pimples. At most, it may be a boil but from your description, it doesn't sound like it. If you had herpes you'd know something was drastically wrong. Herpes is a major assault on the immune system. You would have excruciating pain in your vulva, and when urinating, be running a fever, have a severe rash, feel like total crap, etc.

Hopefully it's nothing too bad! My dr. Appointment isn't until Wednesday.

The bumps don't hurt...one looks like it's healing & closing up...one is gone, but now I feel like there are new ones...unlessI never noticed them before. The more I read on possibilities the more I freak out. I'm now wondering if it can be staph infection. :/
