Hello!

Herpes may cause progression of bumps to blisters to ulcers ...

Not what I would describe as "cuts" however ...

Are these on her labia ?

If she seems dry with intercourse and has pain with sex then a lubricant may be helpful such as K-Y jelly ...

Yes it may be helpful to post a picture of the lesions ...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Hello again,

Ok the pics are of help. These look like she had more physical trauma which might be caused by intercourse ...I would suggest she gently apply Neosporin plus to area twice a day -- keep watch ..it should heal quickly I think...still I would hold off on intercourse for 10 days -- allow it to heal well...may sure she is pain free ...be careful to not be too rough and use a lubricant . She may benefit to have check with her gynecologist for more detailed exam ...

I hope that this is helpful for you

Far as picture it's not herpes ?
Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.

Hello again,

The place highlighted looked like a tissue tear not looking like herpes ...now if she had herptic lesion then it could make tissue more fragile and suspect to injury ...appearance here from pics is not diagnostic of herpetic ulcers--- NO to that -- but to culture this area to confirm that is not a problem I think would be reasonable ...Has she had any history of herpes? Does she get sores or ulcers without any potential injury such as with sex?

If she gets spontaneous sores then she could have underlying herpes... Culture and blood tests could establish if that could be The case

The small tissue tear looks physical injury though ....

No she never had sore or blister ... It what scare me what I been reading on the internet that herpes could make apapercut and that's what it driving me crazy ..
I know she got these cut after we had sex and no she never had them in normal day without having sex

Hello again !

Well if she had no sore before sex then that is very good evidence that she does not have that problem.

Herpes sores are painful and she would have had problem before starting sex if that had been the case ....

So here it looks that as I mentioned have her gently apply Neosporin plus ..keep an eye on it ...make sure it heals well ...in future I recommend use a lubricant and take care not to be too rough ..

I think these steps will help her to stay out of trouble in the future...

I hope that this is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

Thank you so much I was really so panic about herpes !!! And I know herpes don't heal that quick ?!
Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.

Hello again,

No a herpes ulcer would usually take about 5 days to run its course and heal...that looked like a small tissue tear ...the lack of pain and rapid healing further assure us it is not related to herpes....

I hope that this is helpful for you

Best Regards!
