User :   I have been worried that I have an std... I had unprotected sex in July... I got tested for HSV and it was negative. I went to the health nurse and got a pap... she never called to say it was abnormal like she said she would, if it was. I have been very stressed lately and have been constantly checking down there. Now I have a row on each side of my inner labia with taste bud looking bump things. They go from inside my vagina, around towards the top... kinda in a circle. They weren't there in the beginning but each day I check, they get worse and more irritated. What could this be? I want to make another appointment for the health nurse, but she won't be back until next week. Please help.
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Dr xx here
User :   Hi Dr xxx
Doctor :   Please give me sometime to read your post
User :   Ok
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   Since when are you noticing the lesions over your genital ?
User :   About two weeks I think
Doctor :   What do they look like, and what are they filled with , pus /clear fluid ?
Doctor :   Are you there ?
User :   They are flesh colored
Doctor :   Are they filled with pus ?
User :   I'm not sure if they are filled with anything, some are flat looking and some stick out
Doctor :   Is there any redness surrounding them ?
User :   Yes... it's really irritated down there
Doctor :   ok, what test did you undergo for HSV ?
User :   blood test
Doctor :   When was the test done ?
User :   I had two done... one a month ago and one two weeks ago
Doctor :   Blood test cannot be positive in early stages, only the appearance of the lesions on examination will help in diagnosing the HERPES
Doctor :   hence i still consider the possibilities of Herpes
Doctor :   i would suggest you to get examined by agynecologist as early as possible
Doctor :   since there are 100% cure rates in herpes if treated early
Doctor :   without leaving any complications
User :   Ok. I have looked at pictures and it doesn't look like them... more like warts but I will get it checked out.
User :   Could it be caused by touching down there
User :   and being stressed out?
Doctor :   Warts do not evolve so soon , i mean not in the span of 2 weeks
Doctor :   yes the most common way of infection is by touch
User :   It's been since july, since I have intercourse.
User :   This all started when I started checking down there
User :   What can I try to see if it goes away and is caused by irritation?
Doctor :   examination of it will be of more help
Doctor :   Apply ACYCLOVIR oint
Doctor :   for two times a day
