Itching in labia majora, small bumps, not pus filled, cold sore on lips. Herpes infection?

I m 31 y/o and I ve notice for the last week and half I got some itching on my labia majora . The last two days I notice small bumps that would go away but the itching remains. The bumps weren t puss filled nor sores. I went for a pap last month and did request a full STD check. All came back normal. I instantly thought herpes since I do have a cold sore on my upper lip on my face for the last 3 weeks. Could it be something else? THANKS

Hello and welcome to HCM
The type and character of bumps that you have mentioned (itchy, no pus and no sores0 strongly favour Herpes simplex infection.
You have mentioned that you have got PAP smear done. Wait for the report as subtle changes caused by herpes simplex are even picked up by PAP smear.
If the problem is recurrent then consulty you physician/ gynaecologists for anti-viral therapy.
Till the time you are having this problem, it is better to abstain from sex as it is a communicable disease. Once you start your treatment, your partner should also take the treatment otherwise it may recurr.

Thanks and take care
