I have sores.. Down there. I'm pretty sure I don't have herpes. I've never had sex and its been a long time since there has even been skin contact there-- plus that person has never done anything with anyone else. The sores sound almost extactly like herpes... The sores make it extremely painful to walk and whenever I sit down it also hurts-- pretty much just anytime I move, the sores give out small amounts of puss and have somewhat of a foul smell. I don't know what to do. I'm 15 and not very close to my mom whenever it comes to personal problems like this. I'm extrememly nervous to talk about it to her but I guess i'm going to have to talk to get an appointment with a doctor. I'm really nervous and I have talked about it with my boyfriend. He doesn't have any sores. I'm scared and confused. Help me, please
Discussing the matter with your mother and visiting your local doctor is your best course of action.
If you are unsure of the exact problem, then raising the possibility of it being an std with your mother adds no value. I would simply explain your symptons to her and arrange the appointment and allow the md/gp to be the judge.
There are other common conditions such folliculitis than can also produce the symptons you have outlined.
