Red, itchy bumps on labia. STD?

Hi! I had a few small itchy red bumps on my labia a week ago while I was on my cycle. I thought it was just razor burn , or a yeast infection so I put some monostat on it and it went away after my cycle was over. I had sex with my boyfriend, and now he has red bumps all over his pubic region, and he is worried that it might be something serious like an STD . I have never had small itchy bumps on me before and I haven t had sex with anyone else since we have been dating. What could this be? I m scared it might be herpes , but many other females online say it is a possible yeast infection. I also have bad smelling urine. Please help!

Hi there. If your histroy stands as it is, it is very possible that you have aquired some infection. As to whether it is herpes or not is difficult to say as even herpes gets better with an antifungal cream like monostat at times..however not likely. The foul smelling urine et al suggests perhaps a gardnella infection & or a mixed infection. I suggest a urine routine analysis & a serum Ig/IgM test for herpes to put your mind at rest. Plenty of oral fluids & an appropriate antibiotic course should see both you & your boyfriend through. If as you say, that your b/f is the only one you have ever had sexual contact with, then it is possible, he has been the carrier here..again only speculating & dont mean to cast aspersions on your relationship. Please do visit a dermatologist in your neighbourhood together. Cheers & good luck!
