I'm concerned about these new ulcers on my vagina

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

They just popped up two days ago out of nowhere. It was shortly after I shaved and then had intercourse. My health has been good. I'm in a new relationship, but we have been consistently sexually active for about 2 months now with no signs of std's

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

No. I just had a routine std check a couple months ago, and was completely clean. He doesn't show any signs of anything on his penis

Are these painful and did they start as clear blisters?

Only painful with touch. It started like a somewhat ulcer. Similar to what I've had in the past when I had an ingrown hair that I tried shaving over. But then the other small blisters showed up.
OB GYN Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

Folliculitis or herpes.

One is infection of hair follicles.

The other is viral and contagious.

Go to your doctor tomorrow or urgent care for a lab test.

If folliculitis, prescription antibiotic cream is required.

If herpes, acyclovir.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

I already knew this much. I was hoping for more than a basic response. I'm an RN and am very aware of these diagnoses. I am not too familiar with what heroes looks like in person, which is what I was needing your help with

This is fine.

This can be herpetic, but it would be at the late stage of the outbreak [remember that we do NOT diagnose on line, but can go over possibilities].

The second picture looks more herpetic.

So I would be concerned.

I would have this swabbed before it goes away, and have an antibody blood test as well.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
