Do I have herpes or another std

I have a vaginal fissure that goes from the opening of my vagina down towards my anus which I found today and is only sore when urine goes over it or I wipe it. Later today I also found 2 small (maybe 2mm diameter) yellow pus bumps that arnt painful. Im unsure what it is and cant get checked until after the weekend. Any ideas?

Hi djanggles,

Our vaginal areas are extremely sensitive and if you are not experiencing pain, you should be fine. Your doctor will swab the lesions to see if there is a possibility of herpes but getting lesions with vaginal fissure is not uncommon.

Good luck.

Hi djangles,

Herpes are extremely painful so I would assume that you do not have herpes although your physician can assure you on this condition. Try SITZ which you an find at any local pharmacy, This will help until you can see your doctor.

I hope this helps and good luck.

Thanks yea im hoping its not I have a appointment tomorrow so hopefully they can tell me. Looking at other sites it may be a stress induced bacterial infection so maybe its that.
