Expert Q & A Answers About genital pimple

Could I catch genital warts if I masturbated after fingering my girlfriend?

My girlfriend and I just started experimenting sexually and now I have some bumps on my genitals. We haven’t even had sex yet...but I put two fingers in her vagina and then masturbated an hour later without washing my hands. Can I get genital warts from this?

It looks like a have a pimple on my vagina...but could it be herpes?

My boyfriend and I have been together for almost two years. Before we had sex for the first time, we both got tested by our doctors for STDs and all the tests came back negative. I also just saw my gynecologist for my yearly exam and all the tests came back normal. This week, I noticed a bump that looked like a pimple on the outside of my vagina. It caused some pressure so I popped it. Now it is healing. Should I be concerned about herpes, or was this just a pimple?
