About a week ago I started feeling weird like sore in my genital area my friend and mother suggested a yeast infection i have never had one so i figured this was what it was. I went to the gyno he did not say anything gave me medine and i was taking otc meds for yeast infections few days later what appeared was what looked like an ingrown hair. When more showed up I figured I got a rash from all the moisture down in that area....the itchyness and other yeast signs went away but when I would urinate these sores would burn to the point i was in tears..I went to the ER in this terrible hospital this guy who I believe is not even a doctor came in and automatically said YOU HAVE HERPES I started crying because I believe this is impossible finally the other nurse decided she would swab for me. Since it was a wed and the results take 3 days to come back and they do not work on weekends I need to wait til Monday for results this guy put me in a panic attack and I was wondering if someone could please give me some reasurance. I had read these posts and a bunch from other websites and when I mentioned it wasn't herpes they laughed at me...How does someone say something that serious without being sure of the results?? i wanna blow my head off and im missing class and cant leave my room for 4-5days i don't want to see anyone im soo ashamed that I may have this they gave me meds for herpes which i refuse to take and it doesn't seem like it's getting worse.
