Is there a possibility that it could be herpes ?

I have seen the images of what genital herpes is supposed to look like and it looks like small cluster of warts or bumps. I have this one bump around my pubic (not genital) area. It does NOT look anything like GH. It's more-so under the skin and i cant tell it's there unless I touch it. It IS fairly large. Is there a possibility that it could be herpes ? It seems like a standard hair bump that has not come to a "core" or "head" yet.

I had unprotected sex about 9 days ago and I am terrified of contracting herpes I felt like i had the flu a few days ago had a fever and stomach pains, there were no symptoms down there though. Fever went away but i still have terrible stomach pains and indigestion Im stressing out way too much but when i checked down there i noticed two small red bumps on the outside of my labia, they dont hurt to the touch but they are there and have been there for about a day. They are slighly irritated. If these were herpes sores they would hurt right? Could this just be normal irritation?

Is it possible to get herpes from a tanning bed? I have gotten a blister a few times a year on the right side of my tailbone for over 20 years... It just recurred recently, went to the dr. He took one look at it and said it was herpes. I was shocked! I have been monogamous in my 17 year marriage. How could this happen?

my dad s been sick with terrific rectum pains for about a week. He has no appetite; not really eating anything solid. Prior condition post neuralgia from chicken pox . Wondering if the neuralgia is spreading around in his body. Has had neuralgia in his head for one year. Recent pains are back and rib pains and now the problem with the rectum. Feeling like he has to poop but nothing. He is currently taking pain medicine, blood pressure med, plavix, lisonotrol, omegzipril?,metropolo?, Do you think it could be neuralgia in the rectum? Or do you think it might be something more serious.
