So last night I "messed around" with this guy. We have twice before but I have not had this issue. So this morning, well more afternoon, I went to the bathroom and noticed a large part of my pubic hair area was red and was kind of sensitive to touch. Looking closely there were a couple little white heads like small pimples or razor burn kind of bumps. The reddness hasn't gone away at all and upon just looking at it the "pimples" have gotten larger.

I'm not sure what to make to make of this. I don't really think it would be an STD because it doesn't so much sound like any I've heard of it and showed up the next day. I do have quite sensitive skin so could it just be from the little bit of rubbing on each other that we did?

I'm so confused [Frown]

With things like this, it's always best to make an appointment with your gyn to have it looked at. We're not doctors and we can't diagnose over the internet, so if in doubt, talk to a professional. And you'll want to make the appointment soon, so your doctors can look at the pimples while they're still there.

I, too, would recommend a doctor visit. Even if it's nothing but sensitive skin, maybe your gyn can give you some advice for how to pamper your skin and be more comfortable next time. Try not to worry too much before your visit, stress always makes things more complicated, and there's not much you can do until you talk to someone, so relax if you can.

Just for the record, it is pretty normal to have this happen sometimes. It gets very hot and very moist on and around the genitals during genital-to-genital sex, and especially for sessions where sex goes on a long time or there is a lot of friction, skin reactions aren't uncommon.

You might try first just putting some aloe vera gel on the area, or just using a hot compress followed by a cool one. If those things help, this is probably just skin sensitivity.

That totaly makes sense, but the only thing that is concerning me with that is that the skin to skin rubbing contact didn't last very long. Actually all the of the rubbing in general didn't last very long.

I just looked at it and the reddness is less and less inflammed I guess, than it was before. Now it seems to be made up of smaller red spots and acutally is a bit itchy. If its a skin reaction I'm not too worried about it because this kind of thing happens to me, but because of the location I was worried about it being herpes or something.

I actually hae a Drs appt in about an hour but i'm thinking of canceling because the weather here is quite bad, the roads are realy slipper and there are a lot of accidents happening, not to mention I'd rather not spend the money if i don't need....any quick advice??
