When an outbreak of genital herpes occurs, the pain suffered from blisters tends to vary from person to person. Some people tend to have just a bump or a small tear in their skin. Some people will have painful blisters and will have them over their genital area, making it painful for them to shower or urinate. This area is called a prodome, which occurs when the area where the lesion is going to appear burns, tingles or stings. Genital herpes can also be confused with genital warts, thrush and razor burn. Herpes are usually white blisters or they initiate sores which come up to the skin, which then burst and go away. Most doctors can’t tell whether you have herpes just by looking at it, and so they should carry out a test to check that you have the disease. Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) which is caused by the HSV-1 or HSV-2 virus. Typically another outbreak will appear weeks or months after the first, but is almost always less severe and shorter than the first outbreak. Although the infection can remain in the body indefinitely, the number of outbreaks tends to decrease over a number of years. Genital herpes is quite common, with recent research showing that one in six people aged 14 to 49 in America have the disease. Generally, people can only get herpes when in sexual contact with someone who has the HSV-2 virus. HSV-1 can cause genital herpes, but it more commonly causes infections of the mouths and lips. Most people with the HSV-2 virus have no idea they have been infected. The first outbreak usually occurs within two weeks after the virus has been transmitted, and the sores will heal within two to four weeks. Fever and swollen glands are also potential symptoms.
I have the blister I pop them a little clear stuff cam out then some blood . No pain tho. Is this herpes?
I'm pretty sure that if they don't hurt you are good. You can get pimples anywhere on your body that doesn't mean that you have herpes.. From what I was told that herpes are blisters that pop and then they make a sore. I get bumps but they don't hurt, I break em and they go away without any scabs, it's like bacteria making them come out
I had hooked up with someone who I later found out may have herpes, I haven't had an outbreak that I have noticed and when I went to the gyno he told me if I didn't notice anything that I didn't have anything to worry about. I get ingrown hairs sometimes but how do I tell if its herpes or just another ingrown hair or even a pimple??? (I've looked at pics on the web but I know they are worst case scenario.)
I have very very very small bumps. Not blisters. It doesnt hurt or anything, I just noticed them, I don't know if they were always there or not. But I did have unprotected sex about a month ago, I'm going to get tested next week. I don't know if it may herpes or not.. I hope not.
Me I have also similar to that but I did'nt already have sex... So I thought you guys are in good condition...
I am not to knowledgeable on that, but found several cites on it when I typed in herpes pics and this is one of them www.lib.uiowa.edu that cite also has pictures of several other STD's If it were me I would go to my gyno and have them test for everything in the book and see what it is and what treatments are available.
I think I might have herpes, because I have atleast 10 painful bumps that look like they have a dot in the middle(no white stuff though) all over my vulva. So if they do not hurt, you should be ok. Can this be something else? Like not herpes?
