Question: Hi,

I have a few small red bumps on the outer lips of my vagina and inner groin area. They are not itchy or puss filled or any of the other symptoms I have seen associate with bumps in this area. Any information would be helpful. My boyfriend just got STD checked and he was clean.

Brief Answer:
hello! Ι have been through your question.

Detailed Answer:
Related your concern first I need to know what kind of std test has been done your boyfriend?
I have seen your picture and according my experience this look like some bumps with fulfilled fluids and I doubt that the most probably this could be a genital herpes (hsv2) and herpes appears as painful blisters in the genital area. Although the herpes infection itself is not particularly dangerous, the biggest problem is that it tends to come back in the same area multiple times.Most people with genital herpes don't know they have it because in most people it produces either no symptoms or very mild ones so I wonder if your boyfriend has been testing for HSV2 ?
I suggest for both to meet an sexual diseases specialist and to do a physical a examination and take a test for HSV2 from the blood and your blisters in order to exclude this and to start as soon as possible the right medication (acyclovir), if results are positive .
I hope my answer helps you.
I wish you a quick recovery.

I had my first outbreak of blisters on my face 3 weeks ago. I have never had herpes before. Started taking 200mg acyclovir 5x per day. For the first couple days the drug seemed to help heal my sores, but everyday I get new blisters. They increased my dose to 400 mg 5x per day and its gotten considerably worse. They are painful and itchy. I ve been to the doctor 3 times. Should I see a dermatologist or do I need to change meds. I feel the stress of them are making it worse. The blisters are only attacking one side of my face, eye, nose and jawline. Please help.

An Urgent Care doctor diagnosed me with otitis externa herpes Zoster caused by shingles. I have white pustules on my eardrum & v-cells. He did not do any tests, just looked in my ear. I have had a painful and itchy earache for 4 days with pain in my throat on the same side when I swallow. I have continuing sinusitus and allergies. I was given Acyclovir and neomycin drops, & vicodin for pain but am now concerned with the diagnosis. Do you think I should get a second opinion.
