Sexually Transmitted Diseases/possible herpes?


possible herpes
possible herpes  
I have been monogamous with my boyfriend a little over 6 months now and when I was checking my vaginal area, I noticed these white bumps (green) and what looks like a strange cut that has left me with an almost sort of flap thing (pink) could this be herpes? Because I did get a cut in there last week so could this be a healing scab?

Herpes would itch and leave a reddened, scaly, and raised lesion that looks very different from what you have, so I'm not quite sure what this could be. As for the pink circle, I cant quite see it all that well, but I wouldn't put it past you to get it checked out with a primary care doctor or specialist, so make an appointment and get it looked at as soon as you can.
