Conditions with symptom: 'itchy sores'
I'm 15, I've never had any sexual contact with anybody, but I har a few bumps and sores on my vagina lips, they are so itchy at times, Im not sure if its just a shaving rash or maybe crabs, I'm so scared and they really hurt when I itch it, I will not see a doctor wen if I have to, I hate talking about it, I don't want to tell my mum either, how can I get rid of the sores and itchiness?! What do I do?!
I had unprotected sex with someone, 2 days after i felt very itchy around my vagina and then red sores appeared, these then got white heads the next day and burst on their own and a week later they are now just crusty spots, still slightly itchy but not as much. What have i got?
This sounds very much like genital herpes. I was diagnosed with it last year and had the same symptoms. Don't panic just visit your local gum clinic and soon as possible or wait and see if you get another outbreak and then go immediately as they will them be able to swob the sores and give you a definitive diagnosis.
Im a 17 year old boy and suffer with cold sores all the time. I have had Stephen Johnsons Syndrome in 2011 which was caused by cold sores, i now get cold sores 2-3 times a month and was wondering if there was anything i could take or do to prevent them.
Hi, I also got stephen johnson syndrome in 2011. I was wondering how serious yours was an what did ur Doctor say caused it? I have been suffering from mouth sores very often now an blisters on my hands, feet, and knees. Please reply back
I have 3 tiny little pimple like bumps on my vagina where I shave.1 is down closer to my anus. They are not sore or anything but if i touch one they are itchy. They feel like hives. They are not sores or anything but just itchy if i touch them. I have the same boyfriend for the last 2.5 years and haven't been with anyone else in that time. Could you please tell me what this is, I'm freaking out.
so me and my boyfriend both get cold sores and the other day I performed oral sex and the next day we realised I had a cold sore so now im freaking out that hes going to get HSV 2 which will pretty much ruin his life and possibly our relationship.. So can HSV 2 develop from HSV 1 and if he already gets cold sores does that reduce the risks? We both don't have HSV 2 but im panicking he could get it from the cold sore.. Additionally would HSV 1 on his genitals be really bad like HSV1 and what would be need to do to sort it out but I thought as we both get cold sores it wouldn't matter because we have it anyway.. thanks..
As long as he has already been exposed to the same virus he will be fine. However, with first time exposure, HSV-1 can be passed onto other areas of the body; HSV-1 & HSV-2 are both interchangeable.
I masturbate frequently(1-4x a day) and one night i felt this pain. I found a red sore on top, and close to the edge of the head of my penis. I then found two other sores or blisters under the head of my penis. The ones at the bottom hurt more, even running water makes it hurt. Im a vigin but I have received oral sex from my gf. It was her first time so I wasn't concern about STDs or anything. Other than the pain from the sores, the edge of the head hurts as well when I touch it. Prior to the pain and sores, I cleaned around the end of my head(where my foreskin folds up behind the head) with a wet q-tip. Could that be what caused the pain and sores and should I be worried?
elo i have some small sores on the inside on my penes it stinges when i pee and i have about 5 6 sores
