They swabbed the bumps and put them under a microscope. the nurse said that it appeared to be a bacterial infection, but that they still wouldn't rule out herpes. i don't know what to do. i have to wait 16 days to get my results and i'm freaking out. will someone please give me some other options of what these bumps could be???? i can't walk without my labia hurting. it burns when i pee. i have a discharge. the bumps don't have white heads, they look like pimples. they said something about vaginitis or trichitis. please help.
I had similar side effects. Im a male and it burned like hell when i would pee, and i started getting something that looked like a pimple, then it was two, then 5, and all this happened within 1 week. they looked like old dried up pimples after a week, so i just went to go get checked yesterday, and they told me they were 85 percent sure it was genital herpes. i was devastated. it was horrifying news in the beginning because i never thought i would be the one to catch that. they gave me some antibiotics and calmed me down by explaining as much as they could to me. and the bottom line Nicole is that you have nothing to be scared of. There are treatments and if it is herpes, it is a lot more common than both you and I think. 1 out of 5 people has herpes and the thing is that they may not even know it. Sometimes symptoms dont show up until years later. If it ends up being that you do have this, then feel free to ask me anything you want. I just found out yesterday that i may have this and have started doing a lot of research on it. I dont feel as bad anymore
