I’m wondering if I...

I’m wondering if I obtained general herpes ... there is bumps under my belly button, but not having the other sensations I’ve seen on the internet. The last time I had sex with the girl in question was 5 days ago, but have had 5 partners in the last 3 weeks all unprotected, none had visible symptoms

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Yes, overall good health at 38, in shape, but smoke/drink

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Other family members allergic to nickel, and a couple of these girls had belly button rings, so agitation rash?

Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

Could you attach a picture of the bumps that are worrying you?

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Thank you for the picture.

No, this does not look like genital herpes. This looks more like a superficial skin infection centered on the hair follicles, so is called folliculitis. You can try to treat this with an over the counter topical antibiotic, such as neosporin, but if it persists, then the next step would be an oral antibiotic.

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

Should I obtain from sex until it’s resolved ( can I infect my partners)?

There is no need. It is not sexually transmitted.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Is there any further information that would be helpful?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
