Starting to fret a little

Last Labor Day weekend I had protected sex with a stripper I've known a while. We went at it for about a half hour finishing with her on top. Point being I'm sure there was quite a bit of skin to skin contact.  About exactly 5 weeks later I got what looked like a pimple or ingrown hair on my upper pubic region. It really didn't look like a blister because it was hard to the touch but who knows.  I shrugged it off and it went away. About a month ago it reappeared and this time it took longer to go away and it left behind a little patch of red skin that is still there. I'm just wondering what you think.  I've been screened for the other stis and come out ok.

It doesn't sound like herpes, but it's hard to say what it is. It could certainly be an infected hair follicle. Have you let a doctor see it?

No. It wasn't there when I went in to get looked at for other things. If you think it's worth making a special trip in for it though I will.
I'm sorry I haven't responded before now. If it's still there, you should absolutely let a doctor see it.
