Hi I have a question

I have a small sore on my labia right outside the opening of the vagina. It looks like a canker sore. No redness just a clear white and a little yellow in the middle. No pain when I urinate when it passes by the sore it'll sting. It was swollen yesterday and hurt super bad. It's not as bad today. The sores are still there. I have three and I'm worried. What cOuld this be?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I've had cuts before but never this. I have the same boyfriend for 8 months.

I've never had problems and this worries me a lot. I mean that's the only place I have pain. No weird discharge or anything.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 10 months ago

This can be herpes sore, unfortunately.

Infection may have been transmitted far earlier and symptoms can appear later.

You may need a prescription of antiviral medicine.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Is there anything else this could be?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have an appointment tomorrow morning. I'm scared.

This warrant a STD screening.

Your boyfriend may have it.

Chancroid may be the other possibility.

basically I have something. This couldn't be caused by friction or rough sex?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 10 months ago

This does not look due to rough sex, unfortunately.

I know this is not good news, but I have to tell you the truth.

Or treat it
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 10 months ago

You would need anti viral medication like Acyclovir.
