Patient : I had protected sex with my ex boyfriend about a week ago, the day after we had sex i noticed what seemed to be like 5 pimples on my vagina, at first i tried to pop them, and then they got inflamed, so i tried to take a pin and kinda make a hole so the hair follicle would come out, well it turned out worse and started to scab over, there really is no pattern. I told my ex and he went and got tested because he noticed about 4 dots on him, he hasnt got the results back yet but the doctor that looked at him said that she thought it was caused from a bacteria, sweat, and rubbing, possibly shaving. he said she called it flickeritis but i think he meant folliculitis.Mine got worse and there started to be more of them, so i went to see my doctor and she had mentioned genital herpes but she said she didnt think i had it be the way it looked and there was no pattern, but she wants to treat me for herpes
