Getting cuts in peritoneum with negative STD tests. Cause?

Resolved Question:

Hi- for that last couple of months I have been getting the cuts on My perineum. It doesn't happen every month but it has been happening since the beginning of this year. I took an STD test today, but I have only been sleeping with one guy and the same with him. It only happens in one spot. It also doesn't start as a blister. I am so scared. Please help!

Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
This does not appear to be an STD.
IT is more of a boil ( infection of the hair follicles / sweat glands in this area.
This mostly goes away on its own.
It is prone to recurrence, particularly if you shave there / the area gets abraded during sex regularly.
Just avoid touching the area.
After a bowel movement, meticulously clean from front to back.
Apply Mupirocin / Bacitracin ointment on the area.
If this does not go away in a few days, or it keeps recurring, you may need to see your doctor to have a formal prescription for oral antibiotics to clear the infection for good.
All the best,

Please feel free to discuss further.

It looks like I tested positive for Herpes. I have never had an outbreak like from why I see on the Internet. I'm so confused. Are those numbers really high?

Expert:  Dr. Aarti Vazirani replied 3 Days.

Yes, this numbers are high.
You can only get this sexually from your partner.
Any chances of acquiring it before?

Patient replied :

I think this test may be wrong. I nor my boyfriend have had any outbreak like those online. How accurate can those test be? My bf shows no signs and neither do I. I just don't believe those results.

Expert:  Dr. Aarti Vazirani replied 2 Days.

It could be.
There is always a 5 % chance of the tests being false positive.
You can get the tests repeated at a different laboratory. Also, your boyfriend should also get tested.
