Have itchy white sore in Labia Minora. Shaves pubic area regularly. Herpes symptoms?

I have an oval shaped white sore, almost a blister on my left labia minora . It itches and I also have several other bumps, unlike this one, which i discovered first and feel and look like ingrown hairs, or possibly even razor burn , which I believed all this was until I discovered this white one. I noticed all of these 2 days ago in the shower and I am beyond petrified that these are herpes . I have been with my boyfriend for about a year and a half now, and we have been together sexually for just over a year and have NEVER had a problem before. I trust him completely and he s not the cheating type at all. He has, however, had sex once before we met but has never showed any type of flare or blister at all. I m praying that I m just extremely paranoid and have abused the privilege of having the webMD app on my phone. I m not sure if this helps, but I shave my pubic region regularly and me and my boyfriend are VERY safe and always use a condom, for contraceptive purposes, obviously. Someone please help, I m only 18 and I NEVER thought I d be the person to have to worry about this, I m a nervous wreck, and I don t know what I will do if I have an STD .

Thanks for writing to us.
The description provided does not match with typical lesions of herpes simplex infection. I see no reason that you should worry for the same.
The lesion could have occured due to friction, use of a razor or due to an irritant reaction to soap or any chemical being used in the area.
Just apply a mild steroid antibiotic cream in the area. wear loose cotton underclothes. Keep the area dry and avoid sexual proximity so that the lesions heal soon. Also do not use dettol savlon soap to clean the area as these too are quite common culprits for inducing blisters or rashes in sensitive area.
Hope that helped.
take care
