I'm a 31 year old female with one child who is sexually active. My entire life, I've been highly prone to cystic acne on my face, back, and anywhere else I sweat. In spite of this, I had never had multiple pimples on my vagina before, but this summer I have had, at all times, at least two hard knot-like pimples. In my life I have had a random pimple on my vagina, but neevr this many. I'm wondering if these are a sign of an STD, or if it's normal? They stay there until I pop them. When I do pop them, they have the exact same substance as a regular facial pimple: white puss that is watery, followed by blood. Once I pop them, they will go away. Do you know what this is? Why would I be getting so many pimples in my vaginal area all of a sudden at my age?
Oops18: I'm quite possible it's not herpes based on the symptoms. Herpes are not deep knots in the skin like the pimples I am experiencing are. Herpes are normally painful whereas I am not experiencing any pain. Herpes also crust over after a few days, whereas my pimples will stay rooted in the skin until I do something about them. Lastly, herpes are normally in groups of bumps, but my pimples stand alone.
Vance2335: thank you for your input. I think I just needed someone to tell me it's just pimples. It was difficult searching the internet for my symptoms because it doesn't seem many people experience multiple pimples at once. I saw many discussions about one, but not many, so I was frightened. Also, many forums said that these pimples "may be a smyptom of an STD", but no one mentions which one? Again, thanks.
I am going thru the exact same thing. I am 32. Have 1 child. Just lost twins in October, so I went thru a Pap/Testing and DNC 2 months ago. This morning
I noticed 3 small bumps on the inside. I have been a nervous wreck. I work in healthcare and after talking with several nurses they have all confirmed that it is normal for women to get vaginal pimples (sometimes more than 1 at a time). I have made an appointment to calm my anxiety for 1 week from today. I wanted to see if they were going to dissolve on their own or not. I was given the advice to try a Sitz Bath. I am going to do that tonight to see if that helps! Good luck and thanks for the posting!
