    Is this herpes?
    An_257842 posted:
    I'm a female in my mid twenties, I'm only sexually active with my boyfriend (we've been together for 1 year and are both faithful). He has no STDs that we're aware of. About 3 weeks ago I got a sore on my outter vagina lip, thought it was from shaving/waxing/etc. But I've gotten about 6 more since then. Most on my outter lips, one on the inside of my outter lip and one on my top inner thigh near my vagina. Could this be herpes or another STD? The sores have never been clustered together and don't hurt or itch. They're just there. Image attached. Please help. Thank you! PHOTO:
