Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Herpes?

I had unprotected sex I would say roughly two months ago no problems. Just today I noticed when I was starting to shave there were bumps in my pubic hair region. Roughly 7 of them. Looking like pimples. I have not had any itching problems or urination burning. However I wore the same underwear for a few days in a row and they are slightly tight. Is is possible it's just irritated from that? I'm concerned and worried.


You answered your own question in the second sentence. Can you guess what the issue is? You never ever SHAVE your public region. This is my biggest pet peeve with men and women. The genitals were not meant to be shaved with a razor. Electric trimmers-fine. Scissors-sure. Pay the nice lady at the spa to do a Brazilian wax-even better. Pubic hair is kinky, which means it grows like irregularly like a coiled garden hose and creates ingrown hairs leading to infected follicles, which you have LOTS of! XD

If you stop with the shaving and change your "manscaping" techniques, the problems will solve themselves. I've been using scissors for 15 years and NEVER had a problem :) Let me know how it works out. Yes, it will itch like hell as the hair grows back out. Do NOT pop your boils as this leads to further infection, so let your skin heal itself.
