Question: Bumps in the crease of leg or on rear end - genital herpes?

 beth36 - Wed Dec 26, 2007 9:51 pm

Recently my daughter came to me and told me that when she is on her cycle she gets a pimple or boil like spot in different spots around the vaginal area. Not on the labia or near the vaginal canal. In the crease of her leg or sometimes on her rearend. Does this sound like it could be genital herpes?

User avatar Hi Beth36,

This description doesn't particularly sound like herpes. They may be due to some blocked glands or possible a condition called hydradenitis supperativa. Herpes lesions are typically more like blisters than they are bumps.

I would recommend your daughter have her doctor evaluate these bumps when she has them present. This is the best way to find out what they are.

Best wishes.
