I would request you to upload pictures of the lesions.

It is very swollen and there is pus now white pus coming from the sores. I haven't gotten tested for stds for a while, but I am positive my boyfriend does not cheat on me. we have been monogamous for two and a half years now. my last pap was a year ago and it was fine. I never have had breakouts before. the sores are not painful, just the swelling is. the swelling is warm to the touch too. the top ones are white and the bottom are black. I do not have any other symptoms.

Brief Answer:
PLEASE TEST FOR HERPES

Detailed Answer:
Hello
I have seen the picture, and they look like canker sores.
ANd you have been on antibiotics, which supports it.
However, herpes is by far the most common culprit causing such sores.
I would ask you to visit a clinic and get the sores sampled and tested for herpes.
Meanwhile, have protected sex and take a multivitamin supplement.
Do not self medicate without the testing first.
Take care.

My daughter has a kidney infection, but it is now going on the second round of antibiotics and it is not going away. She has severe pains in your lower left back and her stomach and last night it was up in her upper left back also. They did a CT scan this morning. But, she also has a bruise on her leg that is not going away, and this morning she has three more and headaches. I am just worried that this is more than a kidney infection or kidney stone like they looked for this morning.
