Virgin with Genital Herpes

Dear Dr. Rob:

I am a 14 year old female and I have been getting raised blister-like bumps, I think I can refer to it as on the outside labia, off and on for about 2 months now. I have done some research on herpes and I have the exact symptoms of herpes. I went to the doctor and she told me that it looked exactly like herpes. Problem is that I never have had any type of sex (oral, vaginal, etc.) or I have never been in ANY contact with anyone in my life. Then the doctor had to call in another doctor to check me for a second opinion. She told me that it could be some medical term that she said. I am really scared and I don’t know what it could be do you know what it sounds like? Thank you.

Dr. Rob’s Response:

Dear Poster with Bumps:

If you have not had contact with anyone in any way, then you could not have gotten genital herpes of either Type 1 or Type 2. Genital Herpes cannot be gotten from the air, it has to be contracted through sexual contact. I would strongly suggest that you get a Herpes Select Test and this should put your mind at ease.
