What causes painful itchy bumps above tailbone?
May be Genital herpes, consult doctor for exact diagnosis and treatment
Hello and thanks for your query.
I shall make an effort to provide you with good professional recommendations specific to your questions.
The blisters that you have around your anus could be any number of things. It may be due to pressure or due to genital herpes.
In herpes the site often starts to itch before the actual appearance of blisters. The only way to find out what they are is to have a general physical examination and examination of them by physician. physician may order cultures of the sores and send them to a laboratory for examination. It is usually treated by antiviral agents, which are prescription based medicines.
Presently i would suggest you not scratch them, use mild soap while bathing and shower in warm water. Wear loose, cotton clothing to keep the area comfortable. I would suggest you to see physician for further help.
Yet again, I duly appreciate your query to me, I do hope that you have found something useful to help you and I shall be glad to answer any further apprehensions.
Regarding herpes I have Been married for years, I go to my gyno every year & my Pap smears are always normal... How would I suddenly develop herpes?
I read symptoms for both & can see similaries with either diagnosis...
Normal pap smear doesn't exclude herpes
Good to hear from you.
Based on the picture, it looks more like blister, even though difficult to exactly diagnose without proper examination but appears to be more in favor of diagnosis is genial herpes.
One cannot assume you do not have herpes simply because you had a normal Pap. The only way for a person without symptoms of genital herpes can know whether or not they are infected is to have a type-specific blood test for HSV.
So I would suggest you to see the physician for further help and do follow the measures mentioned above.
Hope you have found something useful here.
Wish you speedy recovery
