I'm embarrassed, nervous, and scared all at the same time. The thought of my having herpes literally makes me cry. I started getting sores about 2-3 days ago, at first I assumed it was an ingrown hair and just figured it was time to shave. After doing that is when it got worse. My anal area hurt so bad my first thought was that I have hemorrhoids, when I finally looked I could see the sorelike blisters. It hurts so bad, using the bathroom makes me cry. I am going to to the doctor tomorrow to get some test done and confirm if I in fact have herpes. I've done a lot of research in the past few days and everything I come across pretty much says it's herpes. I have no idea how I will even begin to tell anyone:(

@GMIX112 Yes, I was prescribed antivirals before the test results came back, so the sores are finally starting to go away.

Crazy question I know, but is it possible for herpes to be mistaken for anything else?
