Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you?
User :   I'm in a long term relationship. My boyfriend was a virgin before we had sex for the first time (2 years ago). Two years before that (thats a total of 4 years ago) I had protected sex w/ my high school boyfriend. I've never had any symptoms of anything in the past other than a yeast infection i got a couple years ago. So anyway my question is that currently i have what looks like a guald. I got it a couple days ago bc idiotically i walked four miles in the heat wearing jeans. I've got big thighs so my skin rubs together and i sweat bad. Last night i had four little bump like things on the guald. I put some medicated powder on my guald and this morning the bumps are gone. The area is still red (guald) but it doesnt hurt as bad as it did when i first got it. Doesnt hurt when i pee. Do those little bumps sound like herpes or am i just being paranoid?
Doctor :   our data shows thatyou had a chat with one of our doctors for the same
User :   yeah but that was before the bumps.
User :   i was asking you about the bumps
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   since when are you having this?
