    What are these lumps? Herpes?

    I have had the for a few years and thought they were normal because i have only had a couple of partners all clean that I'am confidently sure are clean. I recently saw photos of herpes and are wondering if this is possibly it!

    Herpes sores do stay for a few years, a few weeks for the first outbreak and maybe 1 week for the reoccurances. I can't open your picture, but we do not attempt to diagnose people over an internet board, the best thing to do is go see a Dr for testing.

    What is happening when you try to open the photo? I know but the bumps are always there and I have never had any pain the bumps never change.

    There is just an X on your where your photo is supposed to be, can't even click on it.
