I think I have an STD...
Is it herpes? a genital wart?
I am away at school and will return home in 2 weeks and my girlfriend is expecting lots of sex.
She doesn’t know that i cheated on her while here at school, drunk one night with a classmate, and without a condom. Poor decision, and now it looks like I am paying the price…
I went to the doctor about 2 months ago and he said the first bump was just a ingrown hair, and took out the magnifying glass to show me the hair, and said I could get a blood test for $200-$300 but since I am a poor student I believed him that it was just an ingrown hair. That bump went away, but this one showed up about 3 or 4 weeks ago around the same area and has just remained the same size. One night i was aggravating it by moving it around and poking it and a white pus came out, so i am about 98% sure its an STD. Should I go and get that blood test tomorrow? Really stressing me out with finals coming up, and how do I go about telling the girlfriend when all she keeps saying is how excited she is to have sex when i get back. :( Poor decisions… FML
It itches only slightly, sometimes, but I try not to touch it.
Advice/diagnosis appreciated, thanks. I am thinking after class tomorrow morning I’ll take the bus to the doctor’s office and get that blood test.
I tried to upload the pic as an attachment but it is over the 400kb limit, and my computer is on the fritz I don’t want to fire up photoshop at the moment to try and resize it, and plus the higher resolution is important to see what I am talking about:

Also: I am in a Caribbean Island going to medical school… so no free clinic here. I could try to go to the free clinic in my hometown when I return home for break, but I know that she will want sex right away since we haven’t seen each other in so long, and I’ll have to make up a lie to go to the clinic, and then I would have to wait 7 days or so to find out the results (I know there is a clinic where I can pay $200 to find out in 2-3 days) and I don’t know how long I can keep up the lie for… really stressing me out :/
