Question: red sore

 healthcare - Sat Aug 25, 2007 4:47 pm

im 18yr old female. i have a red sore down there. its not a blister, it just feels like a scratch and when i look there its just a little red. whenever i do notice it, its [u]always[/u] in the same spot. i've never had sex and felt it before ever coming in contact with a guy in any sexual way. i was reading about the people who had herpes and was worried cuz it sounded like mine but there's no way right? could it just be hurt from being rubbed by my underwear?(thong) because it rests right on it? or what?

P.S. its happened before but its never scabbed or turned into a boil or anything. and i don't have any sypmtoms like headaches or back pain or anything like that. i have no past diagnoses or surgeries. family history..just alchoholism. and i don't take any medications. just kinda wondering when someone will answer..
