Is itchy mons pubis and bump in labia majora signs of herpes?

My mons pubis is very itchy & I often see scaly patches (about2) with no pain included. This usually happens when the hair is growing back after I shave. Sometimes I even have ingrown hairs. There is this 1 bump on my labia majora that also has no pain or fluids inside. I m scared to go to the doctor fearing it may be herpes. Do I have something to worry about?

Hello,

Your symptoms are not suggestive of Herpes. It is more likely to be razor burns. Use alternative methods like hair removal creams instead of shaving.

Hope this answers your query
