Im in a long term relationship with my bf and we dont use condoms because I am on the pill. Yesterday I noticed I have a blister type thing at the top of my pubic area just below where my underpants line is. There is only one. I am going to go to a doctor tomorrow if I can but just wanted some opinions on this. I have never had cold sores or any stds before...

Is the blister on your vulva? Like in between your lips or by your clit? Also what exactly does the blister look like? Herpes sores are like this:

Start as a pimple like red bump, its itchy and sore
Bump pops and becomes an open lesion
Puss and blood come out
It forms a white film (like a white head)
The film turns into a scab
The sore heals after about a week

I have never had a sore on my upper pubic region (like where the hair line is) IS this where it is?

It could be something simple like a pimple. However, if you have reason to believe you have been infected with herpes, it could be that too.

I dont recall any pus or blood coming out of it... although I just had a shower and it now looks like it has a hole in the middle :s It is quite high in the pubis area where the hair is... It is not near my vulva. It hasnt been itchy but it is a bit sore if i press on it

My guess is a pimple.

Of course only a doc can tell you, though. Very Happy

I have had this happen to me more than once. Sometimes, boils/bumps may appear around or near the hair line. It is very possible that you have an ingrown hair or you have a boil that is coming, meaning it will get riper until it burst and the inflammation comes out. Usually, a hot compress with a wash cloth helps to open the pore and release the inflammation.

If it is an ingrown here, don't take my bad advice, but I grab a mirror and a sterilized tweezer and start hunting.

pubic blister?
I have something similar, it only it is at the hair line that is right before the crevice where my thigh and pubic area meet. It started hurting yesterday, but I thought i just pulled some hairs, and then this morning it felt like I had a cut or something (I am a virgin). And it is about the size of the tip of my pinky, it is really red, did have a brown scab or something on it, and it now opened and bled but I don't think there was puss. It now just looks like a little hole.... could you help me out?

sounds like a boil to me...make sure you keep it clean and dry and put some antiseptic on it, and it might be sore but should heal up pretty soon.

any suggestions?
I have scabs on my private area. Where the hair is. My bf an I use a condom 99% of the time. (I know it only takes one time) but we both lost our virginities to eachother and I have no reason to think he's cheating. But I didn't even notice them, he did. They bleed if I pick at them. But I have no idea what it is. Any suggestions? It hasn't been that long since I shaved (about four weeks, I don't do it often). But I'm going to tomorrow to see if I can get a closer look.

Tiny soars in vaginal area or hairs
I read your comments and had the same. I am not sexually active. I've had soars come a little lower than my hip towards the pelvic area and soars in my top hair line of the pelvic area. I went to the doctor and she took a sample for testing. It was not herpes. It is zoster which is the first signs of shingles. It lays dormant. Stress, worry and anxiety brings outbreaks. Ask your doctor for best treatment for you.
