I keep getting a reoccurring cut between my vagina and anus.

Customer Question

I keep getting a reoccurring cut between my vagina and anus. It seems to happen after I have frequent bowel movements. It bleeds and stings and takes about a week to heal. It seems to be in the same spot as well. I'm worried it's herpes but there's no blistering it's just the skin splitting and it only hurts when I go to the bathroom or move in a position where the cut stretches

A recurring tear is suspicious for herpes. You should have the cut tested by a culture for herpes. It does not matter that there is no blistering. Linear tears are positive for herpes about half of the time.

Even if it's been happening for months?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, that makes it sound even more like herpes
