Razor burn? friction rub through intercourse? Help!

Posted , 41 users are following.

Recently had intercourse with my boyfriend and this is the first time something like this has ever happened. I know for a fact we are both std and hpv clean because we both went to the doctor together for tests. We only have sex with each other.Both sides of my labia stings when stretched or even when i put a finger on it. It seems like the skin completely came off. As well i found out that there are multiple sores around my anus area. I'm confident that it could be from friction burn, but its hard to identify and research about it if it looks similar to herpes. At first i thought, the pain was from getting used to his size, but it started becoming difficult to wash the area at all. I always wash my vagina after sex and atleast 3 times a day, but now i've been washing it more than ever. I also checked if he had anything with his penis but it seems to be completely clean and normal I have also shaved right before we've had sex, so maybe the intercourse had irritated the skin? Has anyone ever recieved these before?

    dryness, friction heat, shaving just before . all these are the cuase of ulcerations,

    take hot bath with antiseptic lotion. it will take about one week to heal. avoid sex till then.

    Hi did anyone get an answer? I have the same situation. I shaved my genital before sex and after sex i started having these blisters. I had a test for syphilis but negative. I'm going to have myself tested for hsv-1 and hsv-2 although i'm sure my partner and i are clean, im still confused coz if this is herpes, i should be having on my mouth as well. The blisters have been visible for 2 weeks already although the doctor told me to take these particular antibiotics and putting cream on it, :'(

    I have this exact problem and had to be certain it was not herpes or some other kind of STI ... so I just got done visiting the obgyn ... it seems to be folliculitis ... infection of the hair follicles.

      I went to the doc today and have something similar but looks worse and she she confirmed that it was Folliculitis . I’m in pain and she didn’t give me anything because I attempted to put stuff on it and it is now inflammed .
