Hi there,
I had severe itchiness and burning a couple
Months ago and could have sworn I saw a sore-- went to doc, did a swab, came back negative for herpes but pos for bv and negative for herpes. Now I have the same itching but inside my vagina I saw a tiny red bump. Is it bv?

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
Yes, I think it is
BV tends to be recurrent so it is probably that again.
I suggest you see the doctor to confirm
Also, you would most likely need to be sexually active since the last test for this to be herpes.
Also, herpes is painful. If it is not painful, it is not herpes
