yesterday i noticed 2 lesions on my inner libia.
i haven't had any sexual contact since the start of june, and that was protected.
i have recently moved to a diferent country and what with high working hours and new environment i have been feeling incredebly tierd and run down as i have not been sleeping properly.
i recently had a sexual health check and came back cleen, so i am at a loss what might be causing the lesions. i hve 2 and have not had any before. however i do often suffer when i get run down with my back and with mouth ulcers.

could the lesions be due to my body being run down and tierd, in th same way i get mouth ulcers or is that not likly.
could it also be due to ingrown hairs as they are raised sores that feel slightly like a duct is blocked in the same way an ingrown hair does
im getting quite worried as to what might be causing them. any help would be apreciated
many thanks

Dear Bonjalline,

I don't wish to add further to your anguish but I have genital herpes although my swab tests were returned negative 4 times initially. They had to complete a blood test to determine an acurate result. The symptoms can lie dormant for many years before presenting themselves therefore it may not have been transmitted from your current partner if this is the case.

I also have recurrent thrush, which this sounds very much like, as this can appear as lesions, ulcers, scratches and red inflammation. Most people look out for a creamy white discharge to accompany these symptoms but I do not get that and nor do a number of people.

I also suffer with recurrent mouth ulcers and I generally get them both at the same time.

It is definitely worth further investigation although I agree with Anna that it could also be a number of other factors.

Look after yourself, eat healthily, exercise and try to eliminate stress if you can, although I appreciate how difficult this can be.
