Customer Question

Ok, so 4 days ago i noticed some bumps on my butt, i thought it could be acne/pimples, or maybe some type of reacation from my blankets since i fell asleep naked the night before on recently washed blankets. They don't itch and they're not painful. I took a picture to take a better look at them and im starting to think it couuld be herpes. /:

No, there are no pictures that have uploaded or attached.

Could you try to attach them again?

Yes, the pictures successfully uploaded this time.

This does have an appearance of an early herpes outbreak, and if the sores develop into ulcers over the next couple days, it would be characteristic for a herpes infection.

The usual treatment for herpes would be an antiviral medicine, such as Valtrex, but it would require seeing your doctor to obtain a prescription for these medicines.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
