I dont like going to doctors about things below the waste. i know i should but this just seems easier. I have 2 weird blisters on my vagina, One of which is at the top when you first part the lips it is kind of a reddy purple, The oher is like a long line on the right lip. When i irritate it it bleeds a little, but it doesnt lose its colour. What is it?
No one can tell you on the internet what it is for the obviou reasons, we can't see it. Also this is a patient to patient forum and no doctors are here. You really need to see a doctor about those. Lesions like that are not "normal" at all. I call them lesions because you said they bleed. Please be seen by a doctor ASAP.
It could be herpes. Blister-like bumps are common herpes symptoms. Herpes usually hurts and the blisters may be oozing clear liquid or blood. Herpes can be spread in skin to skin contact which means that a condom is not 100% safe against herpes.
'Blisters are usually caused by injury to the skin from heat or from friction, which create a tear between the epidermis—the upper layer of the skin—and the layers beneath. When this happens, the surface of the skin remains intact, but is pushed outwards as serum seeps into the newly created space between the layers.
Short periods of intense rubbing can cause a blister, but any rubbing of the skin at all can cause a blister if it is continued for long enough. Blisters are most common on the hands and feet, as these extremities are susceptible while walking, running, or performing repetitive motions. Blisters form more easily on moist skin than on dry or soaked skin, and are more common in warm conditions.
Sometimes, the skin can blister when it comes into contact with a cosmetic, detergent, solvent or other chemical; this is known as contact dermatitis. Blisters can also develop as a result of an allergic reaction to an insect bite or sting.'
Most blisters heal naturally and do not require medical attention. As new skin grows beneath the blister, the fluid contained within it will be slowly reabsorbed by the body and the skin on top will dry and peel off.
The unbroken skin over a blister provides a natural barrier to infection. This means that you should try to keep blisters intact and unbroken in order to avoid infection. Try not to pierce a blister with a needle, but allow it to break on its own once the skin underneath has healed.
I shaved last night and today i found a blood blister on my labia majora- is this linked somehow or do you think it is herpes? I popped it, because I was uneasy as to what it was, and a LOT of blood spurted out. I squeezed most of the blood out, and washed it with water, then put a bandaid over the wound.
I am worried as to what this could be. I was tested for STD's last year and they have found nothing and my boyfriend was a virgin when I began my relationship with him and both of us have been faithful. Any ideas/ suggestions/ treatments?
I'm stressing out so much as I'm only 21, please help!!!
I get these blisters quite frequently. I think it is due to wearing the incorrect size of panties. I think it happens more frequently with me because I am overweight. However I am remedying that. I noticed that with the more weight I lose and the looser my pants/panties get the two pieces of clothing end up "pinching" my vagina lips and shortly after I develope a "blister". I have popped them before and they have gone away rather quickly and I have also left them alone and they've gone away with no problems, leaving them alone seems to take awhile for them to go away. In my case this is not herpes as I am tested regularly for STD's with my pap smears/ birth control check ups. I also seem to always get them in the same spot, so there is no doubt in my mind that these are definately from my pants/panties bunching up and pinching.... Time to get a new wardrobe and proper fitting clothes.
I have the exact same problem. I'm glad its not just me though. i've only had this happen once before but it went away. That was about a year ago, and now it just came back. Mine almost feels like a lump under the skin but its really purple in color. I hope its not anything serious, I've never had sex before or given/received oral so I'm fairly sure its not an STD. I'm afraid to pop it though due to pain.
I am extremely afraid i may have an STD. I have had sex with two men, and have done sexual things with one other. I was all three of all men's firsts to do anything with. But the twist is, these purple blisters i have been getting started with my first sexual partner. I have looked up so many different things on the internet to discover what these blisters with blood coming out of may be. But because i am keeping my sexual experiences a secret, i cannot go to the doctor. So i have no way of knowing what is actually wrong with me. I have Type A herpes, and am concerned if i may have gotten Type B passed of to my through my first sexual partners mother. Or, am i having the same problems as 'LeniuXenobia,' as i am too, overweight and have panties that may be too tight. I hope to hear from someone in hopes of figuring out what this problem may be.
If you are younger than 14, I don't know if this information can help you but, if I were you, I'd ask one of your partners to accompany you to your local Planned Parenthood so that you can be tested for all std's. Or go on your own (take a bus) If you need financial help, they will tell you everything you need to know. An anonymous call asking for information might help you feel better about actually paying a visit to a clinic.

Don't be afraid or ashamed because your young or because you don't want to tell your parents... what will be worse is telling them that you have cervical cancer from HPV or that you need to go to the hospital for painful sores that have over grown after time without treatment. I am not trying to scare you but the truth is STD's are real and they are not to be taken lightly. Pregnancy is real. Yeast Infections, Bacterial Vaginosis, Herpes (which you can NEVER get rid of), Chlamydia, and many, many more things are very real and can be disturbing. Please consider what I've written within.
Purple blisters could be many things... I myself have had them from rough intercourse but not in multiples. Blood blisters are a type of blister that is filled with blood rather than the fluid commonly associated with blisters. Blood blisters are caused by a rupture of the blood vessels underneath the skin’s surface. This rupture is usually caused by some form of trauma, such as pinching. Like all forms of blisters, blood blisters form on the upper layer of the skin. They are the body’s natural response to pressure or injury. What differentiates blood blisters from other blisters is the fact that the trauma caused the blood vessels to rupture. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-causes-blood-blisters.htm
If you had blood blisters that burst, you may want to go to the clinic... you can get an infection that can be very painful.
I hope you take good care of yourself, your body and keep in mind that you aren't the only one who goes through stuff like this. You're never alone!
