Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
more than likely just to let you know this is NOT a STD given your description.
So yes it could be a sore from any of the possibilities you suggested.
I would just keep it clean and just your antibacterial soap such as dial in the area.
at what point would I be concerned and would you suggest being seen
If you start to see small blisters that are very painful, then yes this should be seen
Also, if you start to itch - this could just be a yeast infection and then use an over the counter product such as clotrimazole or gynelotrimin.
any concern with it happening so close to a recent sexual encounter?
I've had yeast infections this is different.
it is a possibility, but if you are concern at ALL - get checked for STDs - this is easy to do, and if you have any STDs most likely they can be treated.
can herpes present in the pubic hair? as one bump?
It can - BUT Unlikely - as herpes presents with small blisters that are clear fluid inside and they REALLY HURT
this hurts but no clear fluid
so UNlikely to be herpes
but more than likely just irritation from sex, or an ingrown hair, but not herpes
And, it sounds like you are concerned - so honestly get a STD check - you would be very wise to do so
Ok, this is just new for me
Just get a full STD panel? Is it too early to check for things from this recent exposure
but it is always wise if you do NOT know your partner and HIS previous sex experience - be safe and get a STD check
Yes, gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, HIV, and syphillis, and then if necessary a Herpes culture of the area you are questioning.
More than likely it will be normal - but this is a good practice to get into just to be sure.
More than likely with just ORAL sex you got Nothing - as the saliva usually does NOT transmit anything
I hope this helps
