    Could bumps on vagina be herpes?

    I had two bumps on my vagina that were sore, and then three days later they seemed to turn into into blisters. They hurt if I touched them or if anything rubbed against them. I had a yeast infection before that for a long while and was about to get it treated, but then these bumps appeared. I have been with the same person since I was 14 years old and haven't slept with anyone else. Are these a sign of herpes?

    Hi there,


    As our community member said so well, the only way to be sure if the sores are caused by the herpes virus is to have them looked at by a trained doctor who can assess them with your other symptoms. The fact that you had recently experienced a yeast infection might be significant in diagnosing the bumps. Generally a herpes outbreak can begin as sore bumps that then turn to blisters. They typically then remain as open sores or scab over and then heal, with the whole process from first sign to healing taking roughly 10-12 days.

    The only way to know is if you get tested....

    Your symptoms sound very simular to an outbreak but maybe they are not exactly HSV, they could be shingles or zolsters which take between 3-5 years to go away. Show your doctor durning an outbreak so he can do a swab of the area and tell you for sure.
