    I'm not an expert, but I recently had a similar issue on my stomach and went to the doctor and std clinic to get tested for HSV. I received mixed reviews.

    I'd go the student health center at school and they should be able to point you in the right direction. Or, wait 10-12 weeks and get a type specific blood test to determine if it is herpes.

    Good luck!

    Do not be embarrassed about this. You have a problem and the student medical clinic will help you and I am sure that they are required to keep your info confidential. You need to seek help and get this resolved what ever the issue is. The longer you wait the less they can help you diagnose what is going on. If someone sees you go to the clinic you can tell them what ever you want as it is none of there business. Do not be scared just go and get this looked after. The people in the clinic have heard all kinds of stories and they will help you. God Bless you.
