Customer Question

Hello, awhile back I was fooling around with a guy. We didnt' have sex. However, he rubbed his penis up against my vagina and my vaginal opening. About 10 days later I noticed a very bad rash all over in the genital area. Although none of the spots were on my actual vagina, they were all over my things and above my vagina. They were under the skin and I went crazy and squeezed all of them. They did not hurt and a little bit of blood came out of a few of them. I shave very frequently. They were slightly itchy. They were all gone in 3-4 days. But I'm wondering if this could be an STD. The guy refuses to get tested and has never been tested before so I'm apprehensive. What are the odds that you can get herpes without sex? What does this sound like to you? I have pictures.

Yes it could be herpes.

Odds are high if he had an outbreak.

But not zero even if no outbreak
