Suggest Treatment For Lumps In Pubic Area And Pain During Urination

default
Posted on Tue, 21 Jul 2015
Question: I had sex with a woman unprotected right after I shaved my pubes. I now have little ulcers in my pubic region. It also hurts some when I pee. I am scared of what it could be. What does it look like it could potentially be? If so, how can I treat it? Please help.

Brief Answer:
HSV 2 infection or hair folliculitis are the possibilities

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.

After seeing the picture sent by you two things strike my mind.
1. Genital Herpes HSV 2 infection - a STD. As I am able to see few vesicles also it is more in favor of Genital Herpes. Consult your doctor and after confirming the diagnosis you can get rid of these lesions by taking anti viral drugs.
2. The next possibility is just a non venereal Hair Folliculitis.
Antibiotics will be sufficient to cure the same. Consult your Dermatologist.
Other possibilities are unlikely. Anyway ruling out HIV and other STDs by appropriate tests after window period is mandatory as there is a possibility of existence of more than one infection.
Get well soon.

Well I'm prayinf it's folloculitis. What other symptoms could make it lean more into that direction? Do you personally believe it's herpes?

Brief Answer:
Close inspection will prove the diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
HI, Welcome back.
With the picture sent by you, I was able to see few vesicles, which made me think of Herpes as the first possibility. But a closer inspection is absolutely essential before we confirm the possibility. Until then herpes is only a possibility and not strong diagnosis/belief.
