Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

I can understand you are worried, but please calm down. All infections can be treated and/or suppressed with medication and a change in lifestyle.

To start off with, a white discharge is mostly related to yeast infection, and if this is still present, have your vagina physically examined, along with a vaginal smear. This will confirm/rule out the yeast infection, if present, appropriate treatment will ensure a complete recovery.

Now coming to the bump you noticed. If this is just one bump present on one side, near the opening of the vagina, this could be a host of conditions (Eg. Bartholin's cysts, a simple cyst, etc.); but as you have mentioned the presence of another one, without mentioning the location; only a physical examination can confirm/rule out whether or not this is herpes.

If this is indeed herpes, you have not mentioned your herpes test result. You have reported a negative result for all other tests except herpes. Does this mean your herpes test returned positive? If so, then initiating the anti-viral therapy will and should greatly help in relieving your symptoms. Do not worry, just follow your doctor's advise and I am sure you will recover soon.

In the future, please ensure your sexual partner uses condoms, and avoid all forms of sexual contact during a flare-up.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: . I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
