pimple around female genitals
I have had a pimple on the outside of my vagina between my leg and my vulva for a couple months now.  Recently more pimples (red in color the size of a normal pimple) have arisen around it and one on the other side of my vagina.  It seems as if some of the bumps have hair growing from them but not all.  The Bumps seems to maybe have white heads, but not necessarily, I cannot see that close.  The bumps have not been changing on their own.  I also have white bumps in the inside! Of my vulva that are constantly changing and are very small, the size of a pin head.  Is this herpes or HPV?  I went to a nurse practioner who told me it looked normal, but I know my body and I do not think this is right.  I am being tested tomorrow but I need some guidance in the meantime.  THANK YOU

Things that look like pimples usually are pimples and nothing esle.  Your symptoms do not suggest herpes or any other STD.  HPV never causes pimples or pimple-like lesions.  Follow through with your plan for medical evaluation, but don't worry about it in the meantime.

Good luck--  HHH, MD
