Question: Feels like a hair bump on one and i tried to bust it, its taking forever to go away.. I love sex and masturbation, is the constant friction messing me up, because recently i found out a partner i didnt have sex with but i fingered and kissed her, is it possible for me to have herpes!! I have no symptoms except for these bumps.. I hope it isnt herpes
