Think I was born with herpes??Watch
Ever since I was a child I've had what I believe to look like herpes sores. I've never had an 'outbreak' as such the're just sort of there. Never get worse, never get better. Never paid much attention and put off going to see anyone about it. But now it's getting to a point where I need to find out whats going on. I also don't have any symptoms of herpes (Those that i've seen when googling the sti)
The only questions I really have are;
1) How do I go about getting seen for an sti checkup etc.
2) What else could it possibly be?
3) How do I tell people about it if (God forbid) I do have an sti.
Just basically need advice because im very socially anxious about these sorts of things and I feel like there's nobody i can speak to without being judged or going bright red in the face and wanting to cry in my room for a week.
If you've never had sex it's extremely unlikely it is herpes, but book an appointment with your GP and see what they say. Good luck with this x
I think girls can get it too if you are one though that's only from a pic I saw on images when searching it just now. May still be worth going to the doctors even if this is it though it is likely nothing to be worried about as it is extremely rare to be born with an STI especially outside of HIV, to the point where I'm not sure if it's possible.
