About 1 week ago I noticed white pimple like bumps on the smooth skin of my labia. The bumps do not burn or itch constantly, they look nothing like cold sores, canker sores, or herpes pictures that are available on Google but I have read it can manifest differently in everyone and those pictures seem like severe cases. There is no smell, no out of the ordinary discharge but there is a lot of redness and the area is more sensitive.
I jump to the worse conclusion of herpes so I freaked out and went to an ER. That made my paranoia on STD's even worse. They doctor looked at me and left the room with no explanation. When I pressed for information he asked me if I wash my vagina a lot, then if I gave or received oral sex or I have sexual contact with someone with that has a cold sore. He told me to wash with less soap or less frequently (which is stupid I have been washing myself the same for years and never had this problem, and I've been using the same soap for years and never had an allergic reaction). and no I have not come in contact with anyone with a sore. I am very paranoid about STD's so I NEVER drink after someone, share lip stick/gloss, and I do not take bites of other people's food either.
Then he gave me a prescription. I googled it and found out was to treat Herpes sores. Dosage is 2 pills, 5 times a day for 7 days... 70 pills in 7 days seemed serious to me so I broke down in tears considering that to mean I have herpes. I guess made the DR uncomfortable so he told me that he thinks I have a virus in the chicken pox family that I shouldn't cry. When I asked him if that is a permanent condition he ignored my question. I asked for a blood test so he ordered one but he did not take a vaginal swab. I have another 9 days 10 nights of waiting and worrying until I get results and I just cant take the anxiety.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Please help! I am a wreck with worry. Herpes and HIV are my two biggest fears in life so I am extremely paranoid.
These are not bumps caused by follicles and I know they are not normal because I have been sexually active for 8 years, I am not pregnant and I looked at and examined my vagina in the past so I know these are new.
