I've been on this forum before back in February because of a UTI and I thought it could have been herpes due to a large blister I got on my left butt cheek at the same time, but i got tested and the doctors insist it was just a UTI. Now a few months later I get what i thought was a simple case of razor burn on my pubic area but on one section I got three large bumps which at first just itched but eventually felt like cuts, they became painful. They are not balls, don't look like pimples and there has been no liquid, they were more long and swollen, now this morning they kind of bunched together and now it looks like a small irritated area with tiny bumps. It still hurts and I have had ingrown hairs and razor burn before but never like this. Now, I already scheduled an appointment with my doctor so I am not looking for a diagnosis just maybe ideas on what this could be, because to me it seems like a recurring herpes outbreak. Although my docs say my previous incident was just a UTI I have also read that herpes is very often misdiagnosed as a UTI. any comments or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, sorry you have been going through so much. Beleive me I know how it is. Do the sores look like little white heads or do they look like a popped pimple? You know after you pop a real big one and their is a layer of skin underneat that hurts and
bleeds and burns? I know gross, but these are real questions?
Also did you get a blood test for Herpes simplex viris 2? Sometimes a culture can come up negative and the only fool proof way to know is by a blood test.
