Redness and bumps around genitals
Posted on: 09/18/2009
I just had sex a few days ago and all of a sudden i have a red, dry irritated area around my vagina and I just noticed little red bumps! It itches like crazy and I am afraid this could be genital herpes!
There are other things it could be -- a reaction to the condom or lubricant, maybe friction if lubrication was not used. The only way to know for sure is to have it looked at by a clinician. Go see Planned Parenthood, get an exam and start a reliable method of birth control. It is time!
