Customer Question

I just noticed that on the right side of my vagina the bottom of my lip is swollen and it looks to appear that I have open sores on it. It doesn't hurt unless I put pressure on it. An it stings a little when I use the bathroom. Is this a random sore that would go away or is this something more serious?

Hi Dr Stan here to help . Do you have any history of unprotected sex? What you describe is most likely Herpes. You should go to Urgent Care now to have it evaluated and begin anti-viral medication, also be checked for other STD's. I hope this is helpful and I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Please provide a positive rating for my response.
