Anon - There's no way that we can tell you what you're dealing with, there are many types of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). It's important that you see a health care provider who can determine what you have and also assist you in learning more about how to protect yourself in the future. Left untreated, STDs can lead to illness including cancer as well as infertility.

If you're not able to discuss this with your parents or your family doctor then you can get the support you need from your local Planned Parenthood chapter. You can also find a lot of helpful information on their website, and yes, they deal with people your age all the time. http://www.plannedparenthood.org/teen-talk/safer-sex-stds-25032.htm

You can find specific information about herpes on this page, but you should also note the information in the left panel that leads to information on other STDs. http://www.plannedparenthood.org/teen-talk/safer-sex-std/herpes-25074.htm

Good luck to you and let us know what you decide to do to protect your health in the future.
