Swollen (sore) bump under skin by vagina

3 days ago I woke up without the bump, but throughout the day the area around the left side of my vagina became increasingly sore. It wasnt till i came home that i took a look at it. Its a hard pea-sized bump under my skin, and can be pushed around a bit. I was thinking it was a cyst, but is it normal for it to develop within 8 hours? I normally have a bit of vaginal discharge, but it seems to have increased the past few days. Any ideas for what it might be? I don't think it is an STD because i havent seen my boyfriend since the summer... so haven't had sex since then ( he has been my only partner). Worried because it came so suddenly and it hurts when i walk (underwear rubs against it).

Sounds like an ingrown hair or maybe a swollen gland. Apply hot compresses and don't be surprised if it drains. If you are worried, you can see a Dermatologist. Not an uncommon problem, so don't be embarrassed or worry yourself too much. Good luck.

Joann is right on. I've had one before-ingrown hair. Hurts though! Try soaking in a hot bath. That should help.

I have the same thing..... I get one every so often... my doctor checked me for std's and everything she didnt what it was. Ive now put it down to swollen glands because i cant think of anything else!

Does anyone else had more that one at different times?

I as well have had these swollen glands at times.  They come and go.  I did have 4 removed as they did not go away or decrease in size.  Since then they happen less often, but still do occur.  Unfortunately, I have one right now that is back in the place where one was removed.  Ouch!!

I too have had something like that but found it was a pimple just like you get on the face or so. Sometimes it will burst and drain, but very painful!

Hi i have found a lump it comes and goes, had it for around 8yr but each time it reappears it is bigger so went to the doctors and have to go see gynocologist. The lump is kind of in the groin (between my leg and the outer vagina area) the doctor has said it could be a bartholomew cyst. Its a cyst that sits in a pocket of the groin and when it swells up it drops and lays just above the skin and if pressed is very painful but it does not move around like some of you have mentioned. Mine usualy shows when i am sexualy active after a time of not being active, this time it came up and i have not been sexualy active and has been swollen now for 4wk and thort it best to have it checked. Has any of you been the same? I am gay so its definatly nothing a guy is causing to happen. Any advise would be appreciated.

I am going to have my bartholomew cyst cut open & drained tomorrow.  He is going to put some kind of stitch to hold it open so it will drain & not fill up again.  Wish me luck!

I also have a lump next to my vagina. It sounds most like sierra1218's lump. I haven't shaved in awhile so I really don't think its an ingrown hair. Its about the size of a nickel and it hurts really bad. I also had a lump in my face right above my jaw that was about the same size and also hurt a lot. That was maybe two weeks ago and it went away. I'm really worried about it and I'm thinking about going to the gynecologist.

Well i just want to let you know that you should deffa not worry too much about it!.. I had got one of these a few times and the first time it freaked me WAYYY out!...but honestly it's just from shaving and wearing clothes that are tight or that rub up against the irritated area you know what i mean .. you can soak in a super super hot bath and then pop it and it should go away .. might come back sometime by the same reason or if you have sex the same day you shave that's how i got my first one but trust me it aint nothing to freak out aBOuT liKe that though i think you will be just fine .. Oh and if you pop it make sure you put a really hot rag on it afterwards clean it up good and juss put antibiotic cream on it and when you wake up it should be as good as gone!

I have a pea sized lump on the left side of my vagina as well. It is painfully if I squeeze it and around the lump my vagina feels bruised. The pain goes out from the lump to the outer groin and beginning of the leg...So it could be linked to glands in the groin.

I also shave regularly in that area too so it could be either a swollen gland or ingrown hair (I really hope you can't get an abscess in that region) :S

I just went to the docs today. I thought I either had pulled my groin or had a hernia. My lump is about 2.3 cm on the left lower side of the vaginal area near my leg. The doc said that it was a swollen gland in the groin. He out me on some anti biotics and hopefully within the next 3-4 days the pain will go away.

i had that in october but i didnt think anything about it and thought with a bit of cream it would go away. If it is hurting when you pea go straight to a phemist and ask for internal thrush tablets and cream, even though it may not be thrush now it prevents it. When i went to the doctor with my symptoms he gave me those straight away. The Doc said anytime it burns when you pea just pop one in (to be grose plus it doesnt hurt or feel uncomfortable) but honeslty i swear by them they solve alot of problems, and for the ladies who have the spot things, there actually a type of wart, not a sexually transited one but one that normally occurs in children, Doc says alot of women who use Sanitary Towels suffer from them, you can treat them with all sorts but they just keep cuming back my advise is go to you doc try get a female, show her the wart(s) and she will freeze it off, and i swear im a baby with pain but i didn't feel a thing.
Hope this helps ladies,

Avatar_m_tn
I would say yes it's normal. I think the bumps are from hair follicles. I have always had them as well. They are especially noticable if you pull the skin area flat. But some do occasionally get a little bigger than normal and popable. I have seen alot of guys to have the same thing on their scrotoms

Im suffering from the same thing. Today i woke up and i had a small pea sized lump on my right inner lip of the vagina. Its red and sore to touch. It looks like a spot, and i dont think its an ingrown hair. I squeezed it and blood and a tiny bit of clear puss came out. I also woke up this morning and found a grape sized lump in my groin between my right thigh and groin. Its very sore to touch. Its not visable and is deffinately under the skin.
Things like this always happen to me on weekends when the clinic isnt open grrr. I am booking an amointment on Monday though. I am very worried, i have had abdominal pains for a year and only had intercourse once. They pu the abdominal pains down to IBS but iv always had that little worry.
This morning when i woke up with these 2 lumps, both of different size really made me realise i need to get a full check up from the doctor. Can anyone at all give me some information to settle my worry over the weekend?
Thanks

These bumps can actually be Bartholin Duct Cysts or ingrown hairs. Please see http://women.webmd.com/tc/bartholin-gland-cyst-topic-overview. I have had experience with both, I had to get the cyst treated, as I was barely able to walk after a day or two because of the pain and infection. But as you see in the article, these can resolve on their own. There is a difference between an ingrown hair and this gland or duct actually getting blocked. Therefore that lump you feel, could be more than just an ingrown hair.

Yes i have this same problem (pea size lump, btwn my inner thigh & outer left lip) no puss redness or any of those things though. Im not sexually active at the moment, as my Fiance is away on deployment & gone for long periods of time. I woke up this morning and it was there :-O   .... im going to try the warm compress idea when I get home if that doesnt work then straight to the doctor. Thanks for all the comments because I was completley freaking out!!!!!

I suffer with these little monsters regularly too, but I also sometimes get them around my buttock cheeks...I went to the doctor about them and she said I have a skin condition (but did not refer me to a dermatologist) I wasn't suffering with the vaginal lumps at the time though.  These lumps come in different areas of my vagina, this one I have presently is internal and on the inside of my lip.  Extremely painful.  Others I get can be external or other areas internally.  I think I am going to go back to the doctor to be referred to a specialist as these are a continuous problem for me.  I am happy to have found this site though and know that others are having the same problem.  I also know they are not STD's as I have already been tested...I was worried they may have been herpes...thank God they aren't!! Good luck to everyone with their problem :)

Ummm I have the same thing... but the problem is it's August 20 and it's been there since January. I hate doctors, but it's getting to the point to where im about to say screw it and just go.
It's a small lump under the skin, i can take my index fingure and middle fingure and move it. It's about the shape of a pea, maybe alittle bigger.
I've googled it, and theres such thing as a absest?
Im not insured and I really don't want to pay a furtune to go to the doctor... =[

Please, girls, go to see your doctors! I found my own lump tonight, and I am going first thing tomorrow. Doctors are used to seeing these kind of things. There is NO reason to be embarrassed! I'm sure mine is just a cyst, but I am getting it checked out, just in case. If the lump were something horrible, I would like to catch it now while there is still time to treat it. Please don't let yourselves get sick/sicker by being too scared or shy to tell someone! Plus, most likely, there is nothing to worry about, and you are just stressing yourselves out for no purpose.
Please take care of your selves!

It could be BV (bacterial vaginosis). I had it once, i was worried because i noticed i was having a lot more discharge and also theyr was a lump just on the inside of my vagina lips-it was quite uncomfortable and scary, there was a smaller one beside it. I went to the sexual health clinic and got tested for everything-i didnt have anything sexually transmitted, and they took a urine sample and found out right away that it was BV, i got some pills for it and it went away-she also gave me some cream that helps prevent thrush and BV. She told me when i wash not to use soap or other shower creams etc near my vagina, its one of the things that can cause it-just use warm water instead and it should keep it clean. check out this website that explains it better than me http://www.bacteriavaginosis.net/ hope this helps-just go to the sexual health clinic, or even the doctors.

I have the same problem. Found it yesterday in the inner left lip of my vagina. i have had these before. Maybe once a year. Problem is now I have MRSA , which means I get staph infections easily. So I have to keep an eye on it, if it gets bigger or more tender. I have to get on Antibiotics ASAP.
I suggest to anyone that has had these for the first time, and have no idea what it is.
Just go to the doctor and have it checked out.
Worrying, reading, guessing, makes it worse.
I always say "go, get it done and over with".

You lot are definitely scaring me like crazy w/ your 'pea sized' dilemma, and i'm a 39 year old woman.
First and foremost, i find it well odd that most of you have your problems 'to the left of your pubic areas'. I first had a pus filled boil to my left a few years ago. I''ve had a right side problem twice now, in the EXACT same area "currently the 3rd." Location of it is dodgy, as it's along my pant line area between my lady part and on the border of my buttock. Whenever it makes it's presence known the area is HOT, tender and extremely hard. This time there is no head to be seen. I never pierced the last one, as that's unsafe a thing to do. I just tried to ignore it. I don't even shave there, as i'm allergic to shaving them parts since my late 20s

Also noticed that around the time these have appeared i get a lil feverish. I'm wondering whether they are some serious cyst. ,,,as i also seem to be getting them in my armpits, smaller ones in my left groin area now and again, and the front part of my pubic area. Not been sexually active in 8 years....so am rather distressed as to what it could be

Really Confused Woman :s

Dito - i'm going to the doctors on Tuesday to hopefully get it sorted out one and for all if I can as its ruining my relationship with my boyfriend - i'll post again once i've been. When i've been in the past i've been told to do the following things:

wear 100% cotton underwear
eat lots of natural yoghurt
to not eat too much sugar
To wear loose clothing
Thrush cream and tablets
generally keep clean however avoid perfumed products

When it gets really sore, i've found that sudocrem works very well. This can be bought in any chemist.

Okay Ladies, first of all I'm rather concerned that most of you do not know the proper terms for the areas you are talking about. Hopefully this will help. The girls who are talking about the area between the crease of their leg and body is not your vagina. It is called the vulva or even the pubic area and this is where I think most of you are having your bumps. The next area, is the outer lips of your vagina known as labia majora, then inner lips, labia minora and finally inside which is the vagina. You can look this up if you search female anatomy. So unless your bumps are inside then they are not on or in your vagina. If you do have strange bumps or lumps in your vagina please see a doctor right away. It may not be serious, but it could be. Now, for everyone else, if you are getting bumps or lumps around the area that you shave, it could be an ingrown hair that has gotten infected. There are also boils, cysts and acne. If these get larger or are very painful then you must go to the doctor because only she can tell you for certain what it could be. Whatever you do DONT squeeze, pop, pick or manipulate the area in any way since this will just make it look and feel worse. I hope this helps some of you. I know a lot of you don't feel comfortable going to the doctor with this sort of thing, but they see it every day! They are professionals. Also, to the girls here that aren't 18 and are having these problems and don't feel they can talk to their mom; Maybe there is an older sister, Aunt or even one of your friends mother you can talk to. But again, if you have persistant, painful lumps or bumps in any part of your female area, please see a doctor.

I have the same problem...
very painful pop on their own ...
I am a nurse and I have seen my MD regarding my problem
Keep it clean, appply hot towels to draw anything out or hot baths
CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN
but please go see YOUR MD this may be different for you


As a preventitive I use an a soap called Tersaspetic- anti-bacterial/hypo-allergenic. It is safe to use, very mild ( I am allergic to many perfumes and dyes and soaps).

I know you all love to google things- who doesnt , no harm but please make sure you go see your doctor not every woman is the same- and we dont think you are a **** and think you have an STD

I have also been missing out on school which isnt good as i am doing internal and externals this year. I can barely walk or sit and its bringing me to tears.

These all sound like small (acid) lumps, We all have small whitish bumps around our vagina's and penis', some peoples larger than others. These bumps can become 'clogged' from toxins in the body, stress, harsh soaps and other causes. They can become like a small white lump under the skin and depending on how close inwards to the sensitive areas they can be very painfull. Some you can squeeze out the build up and some are too hard. if they do not go away and become bigger, you can leave it or have it removed at a sexual health clinic (this is not a sexually transmitted discease) If you have these, it is not dirty and do not be embarrest, nearly everyone (man and woman) will experience this in their lives. And If you squeeze the lump please wash your hands so you don't get an infection, if you create a wound from squeezing, do not have unprotected sex as you can leave yourself open to more germs (serious ones).

I have this small cherry i geuss i could say lump just under the skin and it even pushes the skin out some on my left outter vaginal lip. It is painful when i sit or walk or even lean on my left leg to much its also smooth and is in the hair line.

I suffer with these lumps quite often down to a skin disease called hidradenitis. I have been to the doctors many times about them and a course of antibitics and cream usually does the trick! It is best to get them treated as if you leave them they will just keep filling back up and eventually get bigger and a lot more painful! Shaving does not help it at all and i have been told its better to usr hair removal cream but not to sure if it helps! Dont be embarassed to get them checked out you would be surprised at how common these lumps are! I used to be to scared to get them looked at but i am glad i get them sorted out now its a lot less pain to deal with and with treatment i dont get as many!

Hi there all, not sure if im doing this right as i've just come across the site and thought i'd offer up a bit of information i have found. There is a program on uk television at the moment called embarrasing bodies they are proffessional doctors and surgeons etc that travel around getting people to come and ask about their embarrasing problems and making them aware of all sorts of common problems people don't usually worry about or have the guts to bring up with their gp. Back to the point anyways, they have recently done a bit on HCS otherwise known as Hidradenitis Suppurativa, what quite a few, but not all seem to be describing sounds very much like this and quite a few have named it as this so thought i'd put it out there to possibly give everyone some reassurance and some information on possible options to help deal with this condition. Here is the website, there is a short video that i think is well worth watching as it has a some very helpful information. Hope this helps somewhat.  http://www.channel4embarrassingillnesses.com/conditions/hidradenitis-suppurativa/

It's most likely ingrown hair, if u shave down there because the hair is more coarse than legs, u tend to get ingrown hairs easily. it may get a white head if so pop it so u can get the ingrown hair out and than it goes rite away.

I would suggest anyone who has this sort of problem to go and watch the video on the website i posted as some of you may well have an ingrown hair or two but there is a big difference between an ingrown hair and lots of these large red hard boil like spots that are leaving you scars. It really is worth watching if you think this could possibly be your problem.

I get these every so often but it's usually in the same spot. The first time it was so bad I was almost on tears do to my panties rubbing it. When it finally popped one night when I was asleep puss and blood was everywhere but it felt so much better although it left a scar. Mow I have one again and I've tried popping it so it will feel better but it hurts so bad. I'm beginning to get worried and don't want to tell my fiancé because I'm too embarrassed. I still don't know what it is and I think he might think I've been cheating on him or something..But I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem.

Hi, in the last couple of days I have found a bump, thats red, around pea size, under the skin, to the right of my vagina. It does not hurt that bad but it is scaring me. I am not sexual active so it can't be something of that source. It hurts when I touch it but that is about it. Some people say it might be an ingrown hair or something of that source. If it is how do I get rid of it? Please all responses are helpful! :)

I have the same feeling but no bump occurs . The pain goes from the crease of my thigh - an area on my lower butt cheek a more specific area on the side of the lip and on the top where you would shave a landing strip (so its been called) it hurts and throbs periodically and it all on the left side of me.

I am 21 have had these sort of bumps since I had my daughter at 18. Ive always had what i consider too much discharge. I have irregular periods and I used to blame the bumps on my birth control. Until a wk or 2 ago that I noticed a bump on my inner leg right where the edge or your panties go. Before that one went away I started to get another one right behind my vagina on the side of my butt crack. The thing is other times I had the feeling I would get them around my period n when I started they would start to go away, as if they would get drained. But iv had this one for the past 3 or 4 days and yesterday it got really swollen plus I started my period n right now i cant stand it! It hasnt gone away at all Ive ever bn told to do is to keep dry and damp cloths. Ive bn off pills for 4 months so i cant blame it on that anymore. N im just starting to panic a bit.

So heres my answer..I had to do something out of emergency yesterday morning because I just became worst than before. The bump ended up like a huge cherry size and I started to notice a dark spot like it would start to bleed. So I panicked and started calling gynecologists trying to get someone to see me. After no luck I decided to head on to our border friends and was seen by a very good gynecologist. I was diagnosed with BARTHOLINI GLANDS or CYSTSwhich if you google it you will see plenty of similar stories and images. Turns out that I happen to be the kind of women that tends to get these 'glands' swollen or infected easier than others. Just like some ppl are more subtle to acne than others, I am more to bartholini cysts. Let me say that I was having a very hard time walking and sitting and with the antibiotics I was prescribed I am almost bartholini free in less than 24hrs. I was told that it might happen over n over n theres different ways to fix this but for now I'll just be on medication until further experiences. Ladies check it out n see if this can be the answer to your concerns and get to a dr asap. Hope it helps someone out =).

Sweetie, unless you are sure its a pimple or ingrown hair, I know its not safe to be popping these things because then you expose them to infections. Specially since it is in a usually humid area a lot of bacteria build up around these parts. I reccomend you go to a dr, or talk to your parents, even if its embarrising or scary. Your parents have to understand that infections,bumps, lumps or whatever can happen to virgins AND non virgins =). Good luck!

I had this happen to me a month ago and thought it was just an ingrown hair..and hoped it was. I used a hot compress. I figured it will either reduce swelling and loosen the hair, or it was develope a head. Well it developed a head so the next day i went to the doctor and had it lanced..it was a staph infection. No clue from what. For now on i think i will always do the hot compress 1st

When I started to wash last week I felt a pain near the left side a little aways from the clit. It felt like a pimple. I pressed on it and I can feel it rolling around under the skin like a little ball. I can pinch it with my finger and it hurts. I decided to take a better look with the mirror. I see nothing down there visually. They area dosent hurt until I touch myself again and press down to find the ball again which rolls around. I want to say its a gland. Then again I want to say its a cyst. But I am not sure. Anyone experience this or any suggestion what to do?

I had my first one of these bumps two years ago....it hurt to sit or do anything, my clothes rubbed up against it.  Since I couldn't really see it but I could feel it, I had popped it myself and it went away but now I have another one again I waited a few days and popped it but it is still there so I checked again today and even had my boyfriend looked cause I saw a whitehead on it but I just got out of a hot shower and had my boyfriend looked to see if there was a whitehead on it but he said it looked like it already popped. but it still has a bump and it hurts cause it is right where the side of my underwear rubs against it.  I do shave down there and I haven't had sex in a few weeks.  I am also on my period now.  This ***** I am miserable.  I wish these things would quit coming back.  Maybe I should stop shaving, lol...they probably will stop.

I have had a swollen lump in my inner right thigh next to my vagina and it worried me sick.  It's the summer months so I recently started shaving quite a bit.  I unfortunately popped it last night b/c it was bothering me so bad and really hurt to walk.  I placed a hot, wet rag on it for several minutes and squeezed around the bump but not directly on it. It finally popped with an enormous amount of blood and an extremely long hair.  So, I am guessing that it was just an infected hair but not relying on it. Everyone should go see a doctor for this type of thing, as well as me.  I am hoping I didn't do things worse by popping it but it does feel better this morning.

Bartholin cyst is what a lot of these sound like. It is NOT an STD, so don't be embarrassed to have someone take you to the doctor! (Btw,if you don't have insurance, you can STILL go; you just have to pay out of pocket. Get an idea of what that would be. By all means pay your bills--make arrangements if need be--but don't feel  like you can't go.) I've had one at least once, possibly twice, both times before I was married/ sexually active. I won't tell you not to drain it because, well, some of us are going to do that  anyway, BUT make very sure the needle and your hands are clean. My advice would also be that  if  you're at  a  point to go to the  doctor to have it  drained (in one case for me it was just too deep under the skin to resolve without  a  doctor's help), INSIST on the painkilling/ numbing shot. Sometimes they  think the shot will hurt less than non-anesthetized draining. Um, no. If you could've stood the pain, you bold types would've lanced it yourselves by now. Good luck!

Avatar_f_tn
I'm female and 29. I've had this thing for a few years now, just figured it would go away. At first it was a lump varying in size from about a pea to slightly bigger sometimes smaller. It was along the panty line in between my legs. It was not visable and nothing was protruding but would get sore sometimes and made walking uncomfortable but not unbearable.  It can also moved around a bit under the skin when I'm grabbing it.Then it started to come to a bit of a head and I did what most people would do and started picking at it. What came out was sometimes clear, or white or a mix of both. It would get smaller but never go away. From all the picking now I have a redish scar with darker spot in the middle. Nothing comes out that spot now when squeeze (I think it's healed over to many times) but instead a very smelly whitish substance comes out a hole I can't even see right next to the original one.
So now I seem to be getting more of them. Sometimes I'll get the odd one on my bum but still along the underwear line or close to it. My original one is still there but not as big. Doctor proscribed some cream because I got mine infected but didn't get rid of it. He stressed not to pick or squeeze it. He also said don't worry about it. Which to me means, I don't really know what it is, but it doesn't seem to be an immediate problem. And it's not at all untill it grows in size then gets uncomfortble. As of now I've had maybe 6 or so of these irritating things and 3 of those never came back. The others come and go.
I have lost alot of weight in the past few years and started healthier eating habits. I've also been doing lots of exercising and heavy sweating so maybe it is something caused by clogged sweat glands or pours. It's very confusing to self diagnose as I went through cysts to HS to clogged sweat glands. I'm going to make an extra effort to keep the area free of sweat for prolonged periods of time, but I still need to workout or I'll get fat again. If it's gets much worse I'll demand the doctor do something.I don't care about scars I'm more concerned about comfort.

I live in Canada and I'm more then gratefull for our health care but am starting to realize that when your not directly paying for it Doctors seem to be less concerned with helping you. They get paid for the visit if you show up and has nothing to do with proper diagnosis, just get them back out the door so the next patient can get in. Ok so maybe I'm just a bit iffitated with my doctor at the moment.
And now I have a sore anus and have recently felt a pea sized or smaller lump under the skin, not visible right at the opening. I don't think it's hemroids because it's not veiny or dark in colour. It only hurts when I touch it while wipping or squeeze my rectal muscles. Was a bit worried but now I'm thinking it's the same things along my underwear line.
Anyway just wanted to share and see if anyone ever had one on thier anus. I'll monitor it for a bit see what happends then off to my less than helpfull Cuban doctor.

The one I have is swollen and hurts when panties touch it, or I walk but doesn't show any signs of being a "pimple". There is a redness that is around the area that would seem to indicate infection. I haven't shaved my private area in four months so it can't be ingrown. It just started hurting three days ago.

I had such a terrible Bartholin Cyst some years back that it required that I be put under general anesthesia to drain. It got big really really fast and was in such an uncomfortable place that I couldn't walk. Sitting hurt, getting up from a seated position was a nightmare. Wearing underwear or not the pain was not something I'd wish on my worst enemy.  Doctor said she never saw anything like it in her career. I get the "pimples" everyone is referring to here and it is just part of being a girl/woman. Too bad our mom's didn't forewarn us!  I noticed that I get less of these flare ups when I use hair removal cream (as shaving is a big culprit for me).  One doctor suggested that for medical reasons he would approach the insurance company for me to get a complete waxing as that cyst I mentioned earlier was a textbook case it seems.

I know that this is late but I figure I'd share my situation to help some of you out. A few months a go I woke up with a bump on my vagina and I honestly just thought it was a pimple because it looked and felt like one. Then it just kept getting bigger and bigger until it was huge! it was very painful and it was hard for me to wear any clothing that touched it. Then after a couple of days it popped and I had instant relief! Then just last week I got another one and it got even bigger than the last and I freaked out thinking I might have an std even though I have been with the same person for 3 years. The second my doctor saw it she told me it was a BOIL and that its from shaving (waxing causes them too). she told me that it is very easy to tell the difference between a boil and herpes because a boil is a dome shaped bump under the skin that is full with pus, whereas herpes are flat blister type bumps that sit on top of the skin. she also told me that almost every patient that she has diagnosed with herpes in the past said that when they peed it burned really bad. I went ahead and got tested for every std just for peace of mind and all of my tests came back negative! I know this is long but I really hope it helps some of you out! and my best advice for all of you is to just go to the doctor! Good luck!

I'm 16, never been sexually active or anything close to it, and I've been having these bumps regularly for 2 years now. They usually go down after a week or two and I have one that's a bit bigger than a pea size and it's sore to the touch. I had a heavy period about a month ago and found out that I have PCOS [Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome]. I didn't have any bumps back then so I didn't think to ask the gynecologist about it. I don't want to ask him because he's a guy for one and a friend of my parents and my parents will freak if they find anything wrong with me.
I've been reading all the replies and I don't think it's an ingrown hair because I don't shave. Three questions:
1. Any thoughts on my problem?
2. What could it be?
3. Could it be related  to the PCOS?

I feel like no one actually reads the comments, just posts their problems haha. IF YOU HAVE ONE SINGLE BUMP, chances are it is NOT an STD. If it has puss, then it is not an STD. Even if you have two or three if they're not clumping together and blistering, bleeding, crusting etc then it's not an STD. If you go into your doctor with one bump they will just look at it and prescribe anti-biotics. You don't even really need the anti-biotics, but if you're experiencing a smell, then you have an infection, which then you will need it. I had one bump and went in last week to get it looked at the doctor poked at it to see how big it was, but didn't bother to swab me or look inside my vagina. (The bump was near my labia minora or whatever its called.) He said if it got bigger though, it would need to be drained, but it did so on its own. I had a pap smear 2 weeks before, and some swabbing done, nothing came back. My boyfriend was also tested after having a condom break. He was also clean, but had a bump, it was just normal bacteria, they didn't even give him antibiotics for it. I just finished my anti biotics for my bump, it really didn't help any, I now have two more, and they are not touching or near each other, but I recently changed my soap and I'm thinking it's too harsh for my sensitive skin, it is ZEST and has a lot of perfume/scent to it. So I am switching. I hope this helped some people. By the way, my bumps are painful. I forgot to mention that. If you notice a bump, wait 2 weeks to go to the doctor if you're scared, or underage. Most things like acne or whatever will heal itself in that time. If it keeps getting worse or bigger YOU NEED TO GO INTO A DOCTOR, there's no way around that. Doctors don't care about seeing your vag, they see them all the time. lol.

You should see a doctor ASAP. Embarrassing I know but they will be able to diagnose and arrange for them to be drained or antibiotics. I've had the bartholins glands drained before 3 times different to an ingrowing hair but very painful and frightening when you don't know what it is. The bartholins glands are right by the entry of the vagina.

I've had this problem since I gave birth to my 2nd child almost two years ago. The bumps come and go. The first time I ever had one it was on my upper thigh, it was just one so I wrote it off as an ingrown hair and it dissapeared shortly after that. Then a few months later, two more surfaced and after about a week they both dissappeared. This time about two weeks ago, I felt another one trying to surface. This time it was more on my butt cheek, right where my thigh meets (highly irritating area!). My undies keep rubbing it so I've been wearing my husbands boxer briefs. This time around, after the first few days I noticed two more forming near the first one. Ugh it's miserable! My thighs rub slightly so that's a real problem! Please if anyone knows anything that could be of some help let me know. And even if my thighs didn't rub, the bumps themselves are very sore. Oh and the first two episodes I talked about left dark scarring so yay. :(

You probably have white heads because you shave. Some women shave and it irritates the skin, producing pimples on the skin.

I have suddenly had an odd lump just above my vagina. It is a bit sore and if I squeeze it a tiny bit of white fluid comes out. It has a small hole at the top and is about the size of a pea. It looks like it's under my skin and it's very red. It's very uncomfortable and I'm really embarrased about it. Please someone try and help me for what this could be! Thankyou so much.. Any ideas or information is appreciated. I'm so worried!

I'm 19, and have suffered from a condition called hidradenitis suppurativa for a number of years now. I'm not 100% sure on the specifics but basically I get extremely painful, hard, often very large lumps in both armpits and often in the groin and base of spine. A lot what everyone is talking about sound very similar to this. The symptoms can usually be treated with antibiotics, although I have tried many different types for about 5 years, and have now been accepted for surgery. The lumps often get as big as golf balls (with most of the size not being visible but can be felt). Despite being treated for years I was only given this diagnosis a few months ago. I really hope that this helps

I get these boils on vaginal lip whenever I change to using one of those moisturizing soaps. They intentionally leave a film on your skin to moisturize after showering/bathing but the problem is it seals the pores and can cause ingrown hairs....then boils and infections. Once they burst and I stop using the moisturizing soaps, I don't get them.

I also have a large bump under the skin. Its right above the lips, kind of in between. I mean lips as in vagina lips. I've had a yeast infection for over two years but havent gotten it treated because I am embarassed. This large bump suddenly came a couple days ago. I didn't notice it until I started feeling reall sore. It's almost like a bottom sized bunp and you can grab it like a button while it is still under the skin. I am so afraid please help me

Hello I'm 15 and just found a little hard bump under my skin above the clitoris (not on the flesh part, just before on the normal skin). As others have described before it is about the size of a pea, maybe a little smaller. It feels a bit like a hard pimple but I cannot squeeze it. It is only (very) painful when squeezed, I hadn't notice it was there and only noticed by accident. I also do not feel comfortable telling my mum or a doctor and I can't go to the doctor without telling my mum...I'm not too worried but would like to know what it is, can anyone help? xx

Hi, I have this problem as well it's generally a really minor problem. Like the other lady's said a in grown hair or a zit. But it never hurts to go to the Doctor for piece of mind. Also as a mother of two girls around your age you should talk to your mom. She'll understand more then you think and these kinds of minor problems now can make it easier to talk about the more serious situations you will deal with the older you get. Just my advice she'd want you to come to her then take a chance with your health or get bad advice from a stranger.
