I was recently intimate with a gal who not long ago tested positive for HSV (not sure if it's 1 or 2). She's not on suppressants, but we did use condoms. About 2 days later I experienced a notable itch in the lower half of my inner right thigh. The following day, a small, red, pimple-esque growth appeared. Very small with a tiny whitish-yellowish head. It's only mildly irritable, but noticeably sore with occasional burning. The following day (today), another one appeared maybe eight inches south, on the side of my knee-cap. Same qualities; feels like a bug bite, looks like a pimple. They are both lone, and not close enough to each to consider them any sort of cluster.
- the aforementioned woman did not appear to have any sort of visible outbreak.
- the day of the encounter, I'd also trimmed my body hair. Not all the way down to the skin, but with an electric trimmer. the area in question included.
- Winter climate has my skin awfully dry at present as well, especially in my upper leg region.
- These pimples do not surround a singular hair, as many hair-related conditions suggest, albeit in a hairy region.
I will be unable to see a doctor for at least a week but am worrisome at the possibility herpes. What are the odds this is herpes vs. a hair-related issue such as folliculitis or ingrown hair?
Thank you for your time and feedback.
