Is there a chance I could have herpes or another STD?

Okay. So I am a female and I had sex August 1st and August 3rd. I used a condom both times. On August 5th I felt like I was getting the flu. It really on lasted 2-3 days and wasn’t bad enough where I couldn’t work or anything like that. Then a week later, August 11 I went a water park. The same night I went out with friends and I wore this body suit thing that was pretty tight against my vagina and felt pretty irritating. The morning after I woke up and something felt off. There wasn’t any weird discharge or smells that I noticed. It was mildly itchy and just felt irritated in general. I tried monostare one day and took over the counter UTI pills for a couple days. Nothing changed. I also got my period a couple days later. Now, it still feels like same. Mildly irritated and a tiny bit itchy. Also, I found one small bump this morning on the inner lip of my vagina. Kind of near my cliterous area. It looks like an in grown hair (I shaved last night) but is there a chance I could have heperes (herpes) or another STD? It doesn’t hurt and it’s only one and it’s underneath the skin. Age: 27. Medications: Bc pills

Thanks for the query..

Well without a clinical examination or proper investigations it is not considerable to give any diagnosis..

Mild itchiness and irritation can be due to improper maintenance of genital hygiene, fungal infection etc..

So if the symptoms are not getting better you can get a vaginal swab culture done for confirmation of the cause..

Hope this helps..

For now my suggestion is to maintain a good genital cleanliness, use warm water and mild soap to clean the area..
Eat more of probiotics and wear cotton underwear..
Avoid tight clothings..

Hope this helps..
