    What is this sore I have on my vagina?

    Okay, I have a sore on my vagina. It is kind of like two white, little blisters, and it's very red around it. It didn't hurt at first until I tried popping it and putting alcohol on it. After that it kinda burned when I peed and hurt when I touched it. Other than that I didnt notice it at all.

     

    Well, I have been with two people my whole life. One was in high school, and we were both virgins. The second is still my boyfriend now, and we have a child together. My boyfriend went to jail four months ago, and I havent been with anyone else; I am faithful. I am just worried now becuase I dont want him to think I cheated and caught something from someone else. Our son just had a herpetic virus and ear infection right before this sore came up. I don't know if I gave it to him by allowing him to eat after me or by me kissing him. I know I wouldnt have HSV 2 because I know my boyfriend doesn't have it, and I havent had sex. I did use my finger to rub Orajel in my son's mouth while he was sick because I thought he was teething, and I didn't wash my hands. Did I spread it to myself by wiping?

     

    Someone help, please!

     

    My health department doesn't do herpes testing, so I cant go there. Also, I don't have a regular doctor right now!

    Leanne,

     

    I know it has been a while since you posted, but I hope you have had the opportunity by now to get tested for herpes.  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet, but the symptoms you describe as blisters is very common in herpes outbreaks.  While it could be something else, only a blood test or swab test would let you know for sure.  Do you have a Planned Parenthood or similar community clinic nearby?  Hopefully they would offer testing or at least know where you could get tested.

     

    Please do let us know how you are doing.  I wish you the best.

    Do you have a planned parenthood close they will swab the sore and do a blood test. Trust me it is a sickning feeling I just tested positive for HSV 1/2 Never had any symptoms...Not trying to judge you before doing anything with your baby you should always wash your hands!!!! But there is also a possibility that it is not herpes the only for sure way to know is to get tested!! The CDC usually does not recommend testing unless there are symptoms and you are having symptoms I would call the health center back!!
