my boyfriend had a cold sore on his lip for about a week. The week after we had sex, oral sexm a week later, a bump appeared on my vaginal opening.
He said the cold sore was closed and dried up before he performed oral sex on me. Now i looked at pictures and read symptoms, My bump does not look like the pictures let alone feel like what its supposed to feel like. The only thing i have is groin pain but i got that in the 8th grade from going up some stairs. The bump is very little with a cut in the middle. could the cut be infected (because i did shave the night before i noticed it) or cold it be a cold sore??

It is very hard to answer your question based on the data you provided and without seeing the bump. The cut might be inflamed, but it does not necessarily mean that it is infected. You might want to visit your family doctor for a visual examination. Meanwhile, application of local antiseptic products and over the counter anti –inflammatory products is recommended. After the examination at your doctor, you might be recommended additionally to use local antibiotic cream if the bump turns out to be infected.
