I'm writing because about a week or so ago my boyfriend went down on me, but we noticed he had a cold sore later. A few days later, I noticed two bumps on opposite sides of my labia majora. I decided to go to the doctor because I knew something was wrong. She said that they weren't characteristic of herpes because they didn't hurt and didn't "look" like herpes. She gave me the blood test for acute exposure and prescribed me Valtrex anyway because I was headed out of town. She said if they spread that it was more characteristic of herpes. Needless to say, that was Thursday and today, on Sunday, I have noticed the bumps have spread from two to six. They still don't hurt but I have pretty much just come to terms with the fact that I have herpes. My throat is also incredibly sore and has blisters on it. This is definitely herpes, isn't it?
