Weird irritation on posterior fourchette!

Hello friends! I'm having some kind of weird irritation and can't get in to see my doctor until Friday! I'm freaking out so I hope someone has had a similar experience and can offer comforting words!

Last weekend I had sex with my boyfriend and at the end I was feeling sore. We tried again in the morning but it was still too painful and it was burning when I peed. I've been sore after sex with him before (he's pretty big) and figured I'd probably been dehydrated/not lubricated enough because I'd been drinking a bit, so I brushed it off. However, it only got worse as the week went on! I noticed it was the posterior fourchette that was hurting so I looked up fissures or tears there and everything said I should expect it to be painful and itchy while healing. So I thought okay, it's just healing. But now it's over a week later and it STILL is burning when I pee and sometimes itchy! Worst of all, I've gone down there with a hand mirror and flashlight and it looks terrible! Red and irritated. I think I can see where the "tear" is (if that's even what it is) and it just looks like a red bump. But I think there's also some other bump/sore looking things right next to it. Of course I paranoid so now EVERYTHING looks like a bump of some kind lol. And I'm like "is this weird discharge??? does it smell weird???" I may be overreacting but to put it simply it looks very irritated!!

Here's another thing: this weekend I noticed that I felt pain around my bikini line when I put pressure on it. That's still the case actually. I also feel a small pea-sized lump (on each side) way under there. I think it's my lymph nodes, which makes me think my body is fighting some sort of infection!

My mind is jumping to herpes/STDs/whatever and I'm terrified. It seems unlikely though...I've only had a handful of sex partners in my life and my boyfriend is the only one I've been with more than once or twice. It's been only him for the past year. I was tested somewhat recently for STDs (can't exactly remember when) and he gets tested twice a year--most recently around Thanksgiving.

Part of my freak-out is because I'm going on a trip out of the country in just over a week! I hope I can get it cleared up by then but, again, can't get to my doctor until Friday.

Any advice at all??? Thanks!
