Ugh is this a herpes breakout?


Recommended Posts


No worries about shaving. Body hair is a normal thing!! 

It could be an H sore, but it could possibly be another irritation. Did you notice if there's a little black hair or dot in the center of it? If so, it could be an infected ingrown hair.

Did you notice if the spot has changed at all? Like, before it had a white head, did it start out as just a red raised bump (with a dimple in it?). If so, it's likely an H sore. 

Also, do you have any other symptoms, such as burning, itching, painful to touch, etc? 

Feel better!! 🌻

Hmm, sound like it isn't an ingrown hair then. It definitely could be an outbreak! Have you had an outbreak in this area before? 

The sore would break open in a few days from when it first started. Avoid trying to break it open on purpose, of course. Then it would crust over, scab, and fall of, leaving new skin.
