Sore red pimple like bumps on vagina
I recently discovered extremely sore red bumps on my vagina, they are now becoming pimple like.    I don't consider them to be blisters but I'm not sure if some types of herpes look like pimples more than blisters.  I'm really freaking out about this and am hoping that someone could tell me if it's something else.  I am getting tested Friday but it would really put me at ease if someone could tell me what it could be.  The only symptoms I have are extremely sore pimple like bumps.  I haven't noticed them being itchy or anything else.  Could it be anything besides herpes or genital warts?

I apologize if this is in the wrong topic area.

What this sounds like to me IS a type of herpes. It sounds like HSV1. Which is what i carry. There are two different types of herpes. HSV1 & HSV2. type1 usually appears on the mouth, but it is easily transmitted to the genital area. type2 usually appears on the genitals, this type is easily trasmitted to the mouth. So if you do get a positive culture back for HSV1 i would be thankfull. that is definately the type to have if you have herpes...if that makes any sense. 50-80% of the US carry HSV1 and 45% of those people never show any symptoms. Most people catch this when they're children. When i found out i was infected I freaked out and made my boyfriend go get tested. When he told his doctor what he was there for he laughed him out of the office. Its really nothing to worry yourself about. If you do worry you can have your doctor prescribe valtrex and many other drugs to help control outbreaks. But usually with HSV1 you may have frequent outbreaks on your mouth (like myself) that you can control with denivir, acyclovir, abreva ect. When its in your genital area the majority of people with HSV1 there only have outbreaks once or twice in their LIFETIME! I hope I helped!
Take care and DONT WORRY!

I had a similar problem once. I just got tested, and I was completely negative. I wish I would have just went to a doctor while they were there... I still don't know what they were! But they weren't an STD...

OK. So me and my boyfriend have been having unprotected sex and It was all good. We want to get pregnant and we are but now there is like a rash of bumps that appeared. the itch and burn all the time. I am scared it may be herpes. My best girl friend used my razor recently and didn't tell me. She has herpes, Can I get herpes from her like that? I have dotor a[[ts. with the obgyn in like 3 weeks. Should I try to get an earlier appt because of the bumps? Do you have any idea what they could be?

Take lysine tablets for herpes simplex virus, apparently it will reduce recurrent outbreaks...... from those on your lips or anywhere!

I have a similar issue.  I've never had anything like this in my life.  It just showed up yesterday.  it's a red bump on the inside of my left labia.  It's very hard and itches and is sore.  It started to puss today and I totally freaked out.  I thought it might have just been a bug bite or blister.  Some one ease my mind and tell me this is not herpes!!!!

To bojibay, this could be a cyst of some sort so you should really go to a doctor if pus is coming out. Genital herpes generally comes with more than one bump, and the fact that pus comes out indicates that there is an infection. Its probably not serious you just need to have it drained by a professional. Good luck!

I just recently had one of these pimple like bumps appear on my vagina at the same time that I tore the skin at the bottom of my vagina. I think it's some sort of infection. NOT HERPES. I was told by a doctor that looked at it that it was just from shaving...razor bumps I suppose. Not sure if this will help anyone but with a qtip i dabbed hydrogen peroxide on the bumps only. Also Tucks medicated wipes/pads may help a little too...or neosporin or zinc oxide cream/ointment. Keeping clean down there throughout the day helps ease the pain a little too.

I have something similar.  There is only one red bump that appears, it is painful, but there is no pus.  It never breaks open or scabs over and it seems to appear around that time of the month and then just goes away about a week later.  It is very painful though.

so like most people on here, i have recently found a few red sores on my vagina. they are in different places--no clusters-- one on my left inner labia, one on my outer right labia. they are kinda of pimple like but definitely not blisters. the first one i noticed is already less painful and looks to be going away. i feel that by reading other people's similar issues i can see that it could likely be just from rough sex but i am freaking out. my partner and i have both recently been tested (me 3 weeks ago, him 2 weeks ago so he said) and i noticed the sores 2-3 days after sex. i have no other symptoms of herpes really. i have a little discharge but we had sex 5 times and for long periods for 10 hours. and they do not itch, just hurt a little. it was rough sex and i did get a little dry at the end of all of this. could this just be from the amount of sex?

please someone let me know.

Ok. Hi. I feel really awkward here because i can almost assure you that I am at least 5 years younger than most of you. I have a bumpish thing in the vaginal area, and it really hurts. It can't be a STD because I've never had sex, ever, and don't plan on it for a very long time. So, just because I'm sorta really freaked out, I was wondering if anyone could help at all.
Thanks. :)

I have pretty much the same problem and its kinda scary..
I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and then a couple days later when i was peeing i had a burning sensation and bled sometimes for no reason. I didn't have me period for no reason. then that stopped and now i have these pimple like bumps around my vagina that are sore and get kind of itchy. I'm never having unprotected sex ever again.

Wow... I read all the comments here. Everyone is sharing but no one is really helping. Every situation is different.

I recently had unprotected sex, which was a bad idea!!!!
I was positive for Chlamydia, I got a bladder infection, NOW I have a lot of discharge and 4 unexplainable bumps. Because of these bumps it is so painful when I use the washroom and causes a bad burning sensation. I was treated for the STI and the UTI now I have to go back to find out the rest of the problems.

Does anyone else have the similar issue or know what it can be?

Same problem!
Well minus the chlamidia (at least I hope). Me and my boyfriend have been together for about 8 months now and we've been having sex for a long time. The problem with me is worse though. He gets cold sores on his lips sometimes.. Well, I have 3 small bumps on different parts of my vagina, somewhere in between painful and itchy. Thing that ***** most? I have a UTI so it burns like fu*k when I pee, plus if the pee touches any of the bumps it burns even more.
I ahve no idea what the bumps are, but I'm hoping to go to a doctor ASAP. I'm only 27. So the only reason I haven't gone yet is because I'm embarrassed to tell my mom. I really hope it's not herpes. I figure its likely I could ahev gotten it from him. Ugh.
Best wishes to all.

Hey all, i have a similar problem... 8 months ago i had some bleeding during intercourse- i told my dr and she referred me to have a smear test-the results came back as mild changes-i was referred to a colposcopy clinic which there they took biopsies etc. The result of this showed that i actually have HPV (wart virus). I had a close look in the mirror at my vagina and inside i could see a small colletcion of small red bumps that are a little bit painful especially during sex.  So now i am going to book an appointment with my GP to see what can be done about this!! Me thinks an old exboyfriend gave me this, possibly- 5 years ago as he had a wart on his penis- when he had this- i got my self checked out in a sexual health clinic- evidently i had not caught anything- but i found out that it can be weeks, months or even years till they actually show up.  I've been with my boyfriend for 2 years now and he has no signd of warts on him... just wanna find out now what they can do to remove them... anybody had this done?

Herpes will also come with extreme pain...  Usually the first outbreak is the worst, so one bump doesn't sound like the ol herp.  You would have such bad stinging when you pee and even shower.  Sometimes I notice right before my period my vagina goes on the fritz, and if you shave at all down there a hard bump is usually an ingrown hair.  If the bumps multiply or become painful get it checked out.

Hi im 19 years old, i am not a virgin but am not currently sexually active nor have i been for the past few months. A few weeks ago i noticed 2 spot like lumps appear in my genital region, not on the viginal lips themselves but above in my pubic hair. I noticed them come a few days after using hair removal cream. At 1st they looked like 2 very small skin tags, but since then they have got a lot bigger, more red and the one on my inner thigh has started to itch, and has become a very large lump under the skin, its crossed my mind that it might be some sort of cancer. The one i have in the middle of my pubic hair is larger then that on the outer but this one has been pussing a lot and also bleeding too. I have no idea what they could be and have no idea where they came from can anyone help me?!

i had the similar problem. most of these bumps that look like pimples are  just razor bumps. they come after shaving and go away after a few days. put aloe lotion on them and they will most likely go away. but if you have a bump and it is red, itchy, and you did not shave you might need to go get checked out.

I have had a bump on the upper part of my lip near the clit for over a month now. It started out as small white bumps about 4 close together. All but one went away and the one that stayed is now red and it cause a little discomfort to touch it but its also a little itchy. I am so scared and currently have no health insurance. What could this be?

I am 14 years old and have just noticed one of these bumps. It has the width of a pencil eraser but not as tall thank god! its only just popping out of the skin. I have never had sex. ive only shaved down there once but that was almost a month ago. I only started my period in December but it has been coming at the end of each month but hasnt come yet. I know i am probably still irregular. Please help! Im kinda worried and contemplating telling someone. could it be an ingrown hair or just an irritation? PLEASE HELP!!!

Iwas experiencing the same symptoms. then just today, it turned white then popped. It did the exact thing a pimple does: puss then bleed. This seems like a strange place to have a pimple but is that what it is?? u could be experiencing this soon if yours is anything like mine and some of the women on here. It seems very common too. Everybody does get pimples!

After sex most women go to the bathroom and wipe theirselves. Just listen Im not being a smart ***. I didnt know any of this it was explained to me. Buy some always feminine wipes or baby wipes whatever, you can also get vaginal wash or vaginal powder to go along with this but after sex you should go to the bathroom pee or not pee whatever wipe with your feminine wipes or even wash the area with a small cloth and soap. When you Wipe wipe everything and get all th "leftovers" down their. The vaginal powder can help with a smell you may have after sex. if you wipe after sex especially clean yourself regulary and wipe after using the restroom you will not have uti's bladder infections and yeast infections trust me i know. i had them alll the time but thats because after sex i was lazy and fell asleep. I just get up take care of my business and go back to bed. my husband knows i do now. but he used to not know, i would just tell him i had to pee or wash my hands. I understand sometimes cleaning yourself after sex can be embarrasing so just hide the stuff under your sink and make an excuse up after sex and go to the bathroom or be honest. If hes true he will be okay with it.  Also the red bumps everyones talking about large hard red bumps found in odd or sensitive areas after shaving usually if you pop them either blood or clear liquid or puss comes out. Sometimes they may hurt when you walk or wear tight clothes the are most painful when you touch them. Okay They are from shaving in 85% of cases it is either a blod clot, dont worry too much, most likey an in grown hair from where your hairs are soooo tiny they take some time to grow and may get bent or caught because thats a tight and sensitive area ( so when you pop it and all that stuff comes out and it stillll feels like somthings in it then its the hair) it can also be a small cut thats swollen up or just a razor rash. it could be a blood blister from a scratch or cut or bruise. there are many simple possibilities to it if u pop it it will get worse give it  a  few days put aloe vera or neosporin on it sometimes an isepack will help with the swelling and it will either downsize or it wont be so red and puffed out then pop it or give it more time i popped mine after doing all that infection came out i cleaned it up with alcohol put anti itch cream on it so the area surrounding wouldnt pick up on it and so one. keep your area "girl parts" VERY CLEAN especially if you shave lotion baby powder on it will help sweat produces alot of bacteria down there. also i recommend alot of sexually active women if you are having sex every night use a douche twice a month consult your doctor first and lubrication is nice even if u produce your own u dont want him going in dry it will hurt later.

This for me is embarassing to talk about but to be honest my boyfriend and I have had rough sex three days in a row..all of a sudden I have about four bumps on my vagina. I have horrible pain when I go to the bathroom and its uncomfortable all day. I have never had anything like this and I'm getting convinced its herpes but praying that its not. Is there anything else it could be!!?? :(

Me and my boyfriend have been having sex more often lately, and twice yesterday. This morning I woke up with a small pimple like bump on the edge of my vaginal opening. Neither of us have been with any other partners so we know it's not an STD. Is there anyone who knows what it could be?

I am 13, i just found a wart today wile shaving my legs. I've never had sex b4 and just started shaving it a few weeks ago. from all that Ive read on this site and others it is probably a ingrown hair. For me I'm sure its not herpes because there is only one and I've never had sex. its red and about the size of a pencil eraser. it right on the vagina lip. it seems to go down wen I leave it alone and use baby whips. Not in that order. It is pinkish red.

1) Do not pop anything down there! You could spread infection or cause more irritation. Never pick or pop.

2) Don't freak out. No matter what, things are treatable and are not the end of the world. TRUST ME.

3) Make an appointment to see a doctor or go to your local planned parenthood or other free clinic if you must. Don't ignore the problem or wait for them to go away.

4) Know your facts. STD's such as chlamydia and herpes are far more common than you probably think. This means 2 things. 1. It is not unlikely to catch an STD while having unprotected sex. About 1 in 5 ppl over the age of 12 have HSV-2, the virus that causes genital herpes. 2. You are not alone and it is likely that you can treat this and it won't even be an issue in your life.

But remember, this human body is complicated, and your symptoms could mean a TON of different things. So, relax, make an appointment to get checked out, and then go from there. Really though, don't worry too much.

Like one smart person said, head to your doctor. Learn the difference between what kinds of things you need to worry about and what kinds you don't.
For me, it's common to get boils and/or cystic acne since I'm usually moist and hot down there. I try not to pop my boils, because wherever the blood and/or pus goes, it will start a new one. They are very infectious. They're extremely painful and sore and hot to the touch when they're inflamed. I've asked doctors about them and they say it's nothing to worry about. I've noticed if I put antibiotic ointment on them they generally go away pretty quickly. If you touch one, be sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching anything else.
If you shave, it's very common to get ingrown hairs.. and that's what forms boils. The basic difference between a pimple and a boil is that a boil hurts like a mother******, is huge and red, and usually needs to be stabbed... while a pimple is painful but squeezable.

I've met some girls who didn't realize they weren't supposed to change their underwear and/or bathe daily or every other day at the least in order to stay clean. Your natural bacteria will end up irritating you badly if you don't keep yourself clean... but too much soap too often can also cause infections because you wash away the good bacteria. Find a balance.

Bottom line... your body is a treasure... and if it hurts, take better care of it... and don't be ashamed to ask a doctor for help... it may save your life!!!

yammy what you would have is a boil. it sounds disguahsting. haha it is. but you get it from that area rubbing against something, eventually getting irritated and turning red and hurting. but eventually it subsides and pracctically dissapears. but when it gets irritated again, then it all happens again.

besides that i found two red sores on my vagina, but in different places. at first that hurt a little when i touched it but otherwise it didnt bother me. i figured they were nothing sense i am not sexually active. so it couldnt be a sexually transmitted disease. anyways. they eventually subsided and are now practically gone and have just about dissapeared. now i find this red pimple like thing on my left outer labia and its red and irritated and when i squeezed it a little white puss came out. now im just ganna leave it be, and hope it goes away also. and i dont have a gynocologist because im not sexually active so i couldnt ask thhem, and my mother passed away a few years ago, so i cant ask her. reading everyones things, kind of a majority sounded like what i have going on atm, so it might not be because of sex.

For all the people who have the little pink pimple looking bumps those are called heat bumps they appear frequently with athletic activity and sexual activity can also appear when your razor it getting too worn down if you shave and also try to check your laundry alot of times when you wash jeans with underware it can cause a allergic reaction because of the dyes and the harsh fabric.. Dont panic just get tested.. And for the ones with the hard bumps that are skin colored and kind of course those could either be worts or even a skin tag a skin tag is the calcium build up in warm enclosed places much like under arms and it can cause a skin tag to form they can be suffocated off by tying a string around them to cut off the blood flow it will fall off with in a coupl days.. An for those with the blisters around the genital area yes it is possible that, that is herpes,, But dont fret there are several controlling medications out there and 7 out of 10 americans will contract some form of herpes or warts its very common and close to treatable.. Dont fret just be honest with your partner and have safe sex hope i helped any of you

about a week ago i had a itchy red/pink spot type of bump appear on my vagina but ididnt think much about it. Then i noticed lots and lots show on the inside and also a tear at the bottom of my vagina. They are terribly painful and itchy and sting and it is very hard to go to the toilet and also sometimes sit or walk or any type of movement. Could this be herpes? or maybe some time of infection because my partner has not got this and has not had any other sexual partners. can someone please help? should i go to the doctor?

ok, so I've had plenty of unprotected sex with my boyfriend of two years. I'm pretty sure he hasn't cheated on me. He's my first, but he's had sex with two other girls before me, both of them virgins and he used condoms all the time with both of them (one of them he used a condom AND only had sex with her once). He says he's been tested and is clean. Well, I've noticed recently a few things happening: It started off with a kinda hard, painful bump on my lower left vaginal lip. It started out round with no head, and within just a few hours changed shape (it went to a zit-like thing, then this hanging-mole type thing). Well, my boyfriend said it was an ingrown hair and popped it. Puss and blood came out, and then it hurt really bad. I looked at it again later, and it was still raised, but flattened, and had a tiny hole in the middle. It went away after a couple of days.

Well, then Monday of this week I noticed a thing that resembled folliculitis very much, it had a hair in the middle. I left it alone and it got smaller around the hair, kinda scabbed, and today (Saturday) it is completely gone other than a red spot. But I noticed an itchy spot this week too (around Tuesday), I looked (it was on the left side of my vagina, a little bit lower than where the other thing was) and it was just a pink bump, no head or anything, and it went away completely yesterday. But I also noticed between the pink dot and where the changing shapes one was, only a tad bit more on the inside of my outer lips is a zit like thing. It started out small but it has puckered a bit more around the head, which is white. I think I might see some other red, headless bumps around it, but it could just be pulled hair follicles from trying to get a better look. I'm going to get tested Tuesday, and I'm hoping/praying it's nothing, but I'm still worried.
Also, I sometimes itch and have pain in my labia. It goes away for days sometimes, even weeks, and then sometimes it comes back and doesn't go away for days. The itching tends to happen more if I get sweaty or something, but none of this happened (that I noticed or remember) until after I lost my virginity. Any help will be appreciated!
Also, neither one of us have ever had cold sores in our lives.

I have the exact same problem; my bf and I had lots of rough sex and I got extreme pain and discomfort. it hurts to walk and sit and pee, and there are some red bumps, but I know he and I are both clean. I have been putting yeast infection cream on my entire vagina, and instead of using toilet paper I've been getting either a washcloth or toilet paper wet and dabbing the area gently, then dabbing it dry. And I've been taking lots of hot baths, and making sure to spread it so that the water soothes it. and this might sound painful but it's not, I've also been icing it after a long day at work or something. Also if you are extremely chafed, use some antibacterial petrolium jelly ointment on your vagina and sprinkle baby powder on it. It helps. Get lots of rest and eat lots of fruits and vegetables; don't eat a lot of sweets and drink lots of cranberry juice too.

okay, so me and my boyfriend have been together for about 2 years and we've been having unprotected sex almost everyday for the past 6 months. and multiple times a day for the past couple weeks. i do shave, and the other day i think i used an old razor. i have one little red bump on the lip of my vagina and one right at the bottom of my vagina by my butt almost. there is no puss.. i don't even think they are poppable. they do not hurt at all and i can't even tell that they're there, but when i pee the bottom one burns so bad! it doesn't hurt when i pee just when the pee touches the bump.. almost like it's a scratch because when i touch around the bump it burns like the top layer of skin is gone. it's starting to not burn so bad but it still does hurt. and i noticed that the past two days i've had some discharge. but because i do have two bumps, on my vagina it's freaking me outtttt!

I found a red pimple on my inner left labium on Monday. I saw the doctor about it. I wanted to know how to get rid of the bump, without popping it. I get these once or twice a year, and pop them. This one didn't have a white head. I was told to put triple antibiotic ointment on it. I also have brown discharge, after urinating.

I saw the doctor 3 days later, about a sore throat. She wouldn't take a look at the bump or vagina for brown discharge. That same night, I found out that I have 2 pimples on my inner left labium.

My boyfriend licked my vagina, earlier this year. He also stuck his finger up there. I couldn't see the gynecologist or primary doctor today. The gynecologist's nurse asked if my boyfriend has oral herpes, from past girlfriends. I don't know. He hasn't had a girlfriend for over 15 years.

The pimples that I had in the past, weren't located this high. I am worried about the pimple multiplying, as well as the brown discharge. What would cause the pimple to multiply? I found out tonight that the toilet paper smells, after I wipe. I will have to try and see the gynecologist next week.

im not sure if you have herpes or if its just an infected gland due to an east infection. I know that the first ever herpes outbreak always comes immediately after having unprotected sex. the initial outbreak is larger then (likely) You are also likely to feel like you are getting a cold at that time. This is associated with the virus transmission. most people have a noticeable outbreak when the first get the virus.  One bump only is not common for the first outbreak, but I dont know if thats always the case. If you are worried that its herpes rush to a doctor during the outbreak and they will determine.

So recently I found these red bumps on the inside of my labia and have become very painful with sex, burning while urinating and sometimes alone and also slight itching. I've been tested so I know it's not an STI. My boyfriend and I have frequent un-protected sex so I'm wondering if maybe it's only a rash of some sort. My skin can be very sensitive to any new kind of soap so I was also wondering if maybe it was a new kind of soap he is using that is making it irritated. Please get back to me ASAP.

I have several tiny white bumps that appear like skin tags on my outer labia, they are all in a row on one side. We have both been checked and this is the first time it has appeared. When I pulled one off it was hard like a skin tag and bled. They are not painful and do not itch.

I have been quite promiscuous in the past few years and did contract hpv (horrible time for me). I got it treated and I was fine after.
About a week ago, however, I noticed a small pimple-like sore in my pubic region. I popped it and white stuff came out, like a pimple. Then it slightly bled. Afterwards, the same spot hardened, was red and swollen and was painful to touch. The swelling went down a few hours later and I figured everything was fine. There is a scab over it though.
Now, there's another pimple-like sore a few inches away, but thankfully not on my genitalia. I am paranoid thinking that it's herpes and have an STD screening scheduled in a week and a half but I'm debating going to a walk-in clinic.
The last two times that I've had sex, I became very wet and it was all quite sweaty. I'm hoping that it's a minor bacterial thing or maybe the fact that I do shave.

Update: I saw a doctor today and I have the cysts which formed because of hair follicles blocking the glands. This is a huge relief! I still had a pap test and blood taken to be sure that I don't have any STIs, though. Need to be on the safe side!
Everyone, see a doc! If there's something worrying you, go, just to be sure!

SAME PROBLEM JUST DISCOVERED IT. I'm 14 and I had unprotected (unplanned) sex, I'm not a virgin and I have a feeling it wasnt from the sex before this because I had protection, plus this sex was 7 days ago on 2-11-11 and I recently discovered TODAY:
·1 large red f*ck*ng volcano/zit/pimple-thing on my inner lower lip of my vagina
· 1 small version of this beast
· 3 small little cut/pussish/hole things on the thing in the middle (hopefully its just a razor nip. better than a S.T. effin D.)

- MINE TOO were on the left and left only, the biggest one is swollen- yet all of them are uncomfortable and hurt like a b*tch.
Please someone help, I talked about it and im getting an appointment but I am too sick to my stomach to think this is a S.T.D. so please comment back on ANY advice you have to offer.

I went to the clinic today as I noticed last night that I had quite a large red painful bump (looks like a spot but dont think I could pop it) on the outside of my vagina near the bikini line. The nurse said to me it was an ingrown hair which can occur after shaving or if your underwear is too tight. I have never had this before so i was really worried it was herpes but herpes usually crust over, are more blistery and have other symtoms such as feeling unwell (fluy). Best advice I can give is to take hot baths because that can help it go away and some antiseptic cream (If it is an ingrown hair). But I would also advice going to a drop in clinic or your doctors because I feel alot better now! Hope this helped. Try not to panic bumps on the vagina are very common.

I found a website which states what these lumps and bumps could be and this reasured me alot, hope this helps you all, this is what it said:

A common concern of women are bumps that they discover on the vulva. Before you panic, know that there are a several causes of bumps or pimples on the female genitalia and most of them are NOT contagious, NOT life threatening, and NOT STDs.

Here's what you need to know:



Cysts are common and can occur anywhere on the body. In the vulva (the area near the vagina) they often arise from a blocked skin gland. They often look like pimples or lumps under the skin. If fairly large or uncomfortable, it can be incised and drained by a doctor. Squeezing them on your own is NOT a good idea as it can cause the introduction of bacteria and cause infection. A few common genital cysts in women include:



1. Skene's duct cysts. These occur on either side of the urethra (where you urinate). You can self treat these with warm compresses, or if large, it can be opened up by your doctor.


2. Bartholin cysts occur on either side of the lower part of the labia majora, the outside of the vagina. They can become very large, like the side of a walnut and are usually noticed because of rapid growth in size and pain. Treatment includes warm sitz baths and incision and drainage if needed.



Blocked hair follicles, or folliculitis is probably the most common "bump" seen in the genitalia of men and women. The bumps are often irritated and tender. They are infected and may require antibiotics and a large incision and drainage to treat.



Clogged sweat glands can occur anywhere, including the genitalia. These sweat glands can be infected. Hidradenitis suppurativa is a condition causes painful clogged sweat glands anywhere on the body that are infected. They leave hard scars. Usually antibiotics and other medications are needed to treat. Fox Fordyce is a condition that causes nontender clogged sweat glands. Treatment includes steroid creams and other more specialized modalities.



Genital herpes is an STD. It usually causes itchy, burning and painful lesions that often start as a sore spot resembling a bug bite, but progresses over a few days to a blister or group of blisters and then an open ulcer. Treatment includes antiviral medications and pain meds.



Infection with subtypes 6 or 11 of the human papilloma virus (HPV) can cause genital warts. It too is a sexually transmitted disease. These "bumps" have a cauliflower like appearance. They are rough to the touch and can spread. Treatment includes applications of medications to freeze off the lesions or improve the immune system to fight the virus.



Molluscum contagiosum. This viral infection causes small, fleshy bumps on the vulva with a central indentation. They have a pearly color to them. They usually go away without treatment.



Skin tags are fleshy irregular shaped growths of normal skin that can occur on the vulva or elsewhere on the body.



And, there are a multitude of other causes of female genital bumps. While most are minor and require little or limited treatment, others are STDs. Therefore, if you discover a "bump", be sure to get it checked out by your doctor!

I am too having the same problem. I was in the shower, noticed a small bump; i didnt worry too much because I thought it was a razor bump. The next day, I experienced pain during urination. My mom told me I must have a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). Then I noticed more red bumps and now they look like they have white puss in them. These bumps are only located outside of my vagina (Around my Labia). It still hurts when I use the bathroom and the bumps look more like sores now. I got a pap-smear, and blood work done today & my doctor told me that they may be something that is not serious like sebaceous cysts but again it may be something serious such as a viral disease (Herpes). Im so scared to see what results come up to be....can someone please tell me if you have gone through the same and can tell me what I can possible have? Thank You.

I have a bump not on my vagina but on my left (for the lack of a better word) lip. Its red it doesn't itch but it is sore. The weird thing about it is that the top of it is lose and a can feel the bump under the inflated part right on top. It also kinda looks like a pimple. But I'm not quite sure. The guy I'm with now was a virgin but my ex wasn't but that was about 4 years ago. Those have been my only expirences. Can anybody tell me what I can be?

Hi, well my boyfriend and I recently had sex and he knows for a fact that he does not have herpes. The day we had sex, i shaved my hair.
But the day after we had sex, red, pimple like bumps had started appearing on my vagina . I pop them , but they always come back.
I asked my mom about it, and she said that it is ingrown hair from shaving. But I've been itching a little bit before I had the bumps appear.
It itches and hurts . I talked to my boyfriend about it and he said that he did the same thing last year.(before we started dating) He said that he shaved some of his pubic hair, and he started having the same as I. He told me that its just natural and ingrown hair because its normal to have that after you shave. Im really scared that I might have herpes, I really don't want to have it. I also want a cure, but it's not going away/:
Can somebody help me and tell me what it is? How I can make them go away?

I have similar problems and have found it is due to when my immune system is low or I have been eating badly.
When you eat lots of acidic foods and drink lots of alcohol then your natural PH levels vary and also your immune system drops.
My period efffects it as well.
So before drinking or periods I eat well and take pro-biotics and have little re-occuring problems. If I dont, I suffer with scabs and sores...

These are all basic stories no answers- well i've been reading up a lot about herpes because im a hypochondriac and freak out about the tiniest thing. But i have a small red pimple like bump on the outside of my vagina near my thigh and it hurts now cause i popped it, but thats definitely from shaving because ive had them before and ive gotten checked and i was std free. But the difference between herpes and razor bumps is that razor bumps will be little red bumps and can sometimes turn into pimples and if you pop them it can cause irritating pain, as for herpes, its larger and is more like a boil/blister thats fluid filled  and will pop by itself forming an open soar which is very painful. Usually will form inside of the labials or on the lips of the vagina. symptoms for herpes is itching in one area of the vagina, yellowish smelly discharge along with burning while peeing. Burning while peeing can also be a variety of things: bladder infection, UTI or chlamydia. If you have any of these symptoms talk to your doctor and specifically say that you want to get tested for herpes otherwise theyll just do an std check which doesnt usually check for herpes. Im going to get tested again because i think i have a yeast infection and symptoms for yeast infections and herpes are somewhat alike but i have yet to have any blisters but im still very nervous and i just want to have a clear head and after this check up i plan to wait till marriage because its not worth the risk, its really not. But i hope this was somewhat helpful.

I have never had sex but had a similar thing happen, and wondered as well.
do you shave at all? because like one of the comments said, it could just be a razor burn.
like mine was just a small pump that hurt to touch, but they eventually go away

It could be an ingrown hair or normal skin reaction or it could be HPV. some HPV viruses start as a pimple but feels hard and painful. there are 200 known HPV viruses. a few years back it was like 86. Condoms don't protect you from HPV. Abstinence always works but be aware that Its Plausible to transmit it with Oral sex, kissing, and through fingers. Basically you can get it even though you are not having sex but especially if you are.There is a Vaccine for women for most of the viruses but not all. All it takes is skin to skin contact and chances dramatically increase with breaks in the skin. Like the ones you get from shaving. Maybe washing with soap and water immediately after sex may help but that is just my theory. Some cause cancer most don't do anything other than flare up temporary or permanent warts. You can remove them using several methods but can come back since it is in your blood. lowering your immune system can cause more to flare. there are natural supplements you can take that some believe can help prevent flares like CoQ10. Good luck and DON'T WORRY! If you are sexually active keep using condoms!!!!! wikki has allot of info!
