Bump On Inner Thigh - Is it a Herpes Sore or Something Else?

I had a bump in my leg. I took a warm shower & put aloe vera gel on it. The bump decreased in size & formed a white head. I pushed a white stem out & the bump went away leaving behind a dead skin & a round circle. Is it possible the bump was a herpes sore.

Thank you for submitting your question and Happy New Year!

Please keep in mind that I am not a doctor and I don't pretend to be. Always seek out medical advice from a qualified professional for a thorough diagnosis.

With this being said, based on the description of your condition, I highly doubt that you experienced a herpes sore. It sounds more like a pimple or an ingrown hair. I wrote a very detailed description of what a herpes blister looks like with pictures.

Wishing you success and happiness!
