I have had a small lump just inside my vagina. At first it wasn't painful and didn't bother me. Now it has grown a small amount and is white. It is very hard and now painful. I tried to squeeze it but it hurt so I stopped. I don't have any discharges or smells. I'm really worried and can't go to the doctor right now. I'm worried it might go away before I get the chace to go. I have looked at pictures or all STD's and I can't see any similarities with what I have. Please help!
It sounds like you have a pimple.Pimples do form in this area.Try sitz baths,with half a teaspoon of vinegar.If it is not better by Wednesday,you will have to go to the dodctor,the doctor will pop it and let it drain.Take care of your self.
We're not doctors here but what I would recommend is, for the next week:
1. Keep the area clean. In other words, do not touch it. Don't wear tight fitting clothes, wear cotton underwear. Avoid all irritants like feminine spray.
2. Apply an antibiotic ointment (found in the first aid department of your local store).
3. Stop squeezing it.
After doing all these things, if it is continuing to worsen, you'll need to get it checked out. And you should not try to "pop" it on your own - you could give yourself a bad infection.
Thanks to everyone who commented. My boyfriend and I have been so worried and are waiting until Weds. for my Doctor appointment. After all the comments I found a website that shows so many picutres of what a cyst looks like. I feel confident that everything will be okay and am very appreciative of all the comments. I would have stayed up the whole night worrying. Thank You!
