Hi,

Protected exposure offers protection to penis and urethra. But scrotum and adjacent areas are not protected. So other STDs can occur at these unprotected areas.

However, warts do not occur within three days. Incubation period for genital warts is more than two to four months. And herpes manifest as grouped vesicles and then with tiny grouped ulcers.

I saw the picture sent by you. It does not fit any STD / herpes / genital warts. It may be a manifestation of an insect bite as there is erythema adjacent to the spot. Another rare possibility may be an ecto-parasitic infection due to pubic louse infection.

You can XXXXXXX a Dermatologist and he/she will be able to guide you through further investigation and treatment. In brief your problem does not seem to be serious and easily manageable.

Hope this answer is reassuring. Let me know if you need further clarifications.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

Well I have developed these bumbs on the outer side of my vagina. They are not genital warts because I am a virgin. They aren t gross looking either. They are red and some look like pimples. They are on my butt too a little bit. They are itchy and when i itch them they hurt. My dads girlfriend said it could be from shaving and a mixture of wearing pads. So for the last two days I have been wearing tampons but the bumps are still there and still itchy. I read some things and girls said pads are causing them to have like chemical burn, but these loads haven t ever bothered me this much. So I don t know what it is or what to do. What do you think?

Hello. I had a leep procedure done without my doctor doing a colpo. She mentioned that she will do the colpo during the leep procedure and that I need to have it done anyway because I came back at high grade HPV. She cut off a huge chunk of my cervix in which all of it was normal tissue. Now I m having all kinds of sharp pains in my pelvix, pain during intercourse and weird periods that stay on for about two weeks. I went to another obgyn who stated that this doctor should not have done the leep without doing the colpo first to see if it was even necessary. Do I have a lawsuit and what can I do about this?
