I am a 27 year old female, monogamous for 7 years, have had annual paps/pelvic exams (never abnormal) my most resent was just last month, no history of STDs
I just notices these small bumps along the edge of my inner labia - they're on one side along the edge - looks almost like taste buds, about 5 or 6 in a line. Has anyone ever had anything like this before?
From the symptoms it sounds like sebaceous cysts.They are usually painless, slow-growing small bumps or lumps that move freely under the skin. Blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles and excessive testosterone production will cause such cysts.
Generally no treatment is required but they become painful then it means they are infected,Then surgical excision by traditional wide excision, minimal excision, and punch biopsy excision may be required.
I sincerely suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist and get it examined.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.
looked this up, and a lot of the photos i see sound pimple like. These bumps are more like flaps of skin, nothing inside... like the skin is scalloped or like skin tag looking, flat and about 1/16 - 1/8 inch long - but no fluid inside, just flaps of skin. could that still be sebaceous cysts?
If there is nothing inside thesde bumps,then molluscum and rash due to friction rub also needs evaluation. Molluscum contagiosum is a common, benign, self limiting viral infection of the skin. In adults, molluscum infections are often sexually transmitted and can transmit from one site to other skin sites by aoutoinocultaion.They appear as multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug.
I would suggest you to get an examination done by a dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Warm regards.
