Hi I'm freaking out. I noticed a small pimple on the lip of my vagina 3 weeks ago. I went to the doctor and he said it was just a pimple and gave me antibiotic ointment. It's been 25 days and still hasn't gone away so I went to the doctor again and she said that it looks like its herpes but she's not sure because I don't have any of the typical symptoms associated with herpes. It doesn't hurt to touch and it's not oozing with anything. She took a swab and said its very unusual that it would be not painful when she swabbed it. She said she was confused and didn't know so she also took a blood test to test for herpes. She said I could have cut it shaving or it could be an infected ingrown hair buy she said it had herpes characteristics but I have no symptoms. It doesn't really bother me and it's not painful and it doesn't burn when I pee. I had unprotected sex 3 weeks ago and then the pimple appeared the day after I had sex. The doctor said if it was herpes it should have cleared up by now because it's been over 3 weeks since I got it. I'm fresking out does this sound like herpes? I've had only several sexual partners and the thought of having herpes is devastating. I don't get the results back for 3 more days and I don't know how I'm going to get any sleep until I do. Help does this sound like herpes? I get tested every 6 months and have never had a STD ever.
It is hard to say, it may be a pimple.. If your results come back negative get tested at the 4 month mark from the last time you had sex. If you have it , it should appear in your blood by then, be sure to ask for the IgG herpes type specific blood test. Also, I see you get tested often which is great, you should check to see if they test you for herpes too because normally the routine STD panel does not include it.
