White vaginal bumps

I was looking at my vagina in the mirror and I noticed that inside on one side there were 3 small white bumps in a line. At times I am a little irritated at that area. What could those bumps be and what can I do to get rid of them or treat them?

So a friend of mine had the same thing a couple months ago.  She was really worried and went to the doctor.  Its called HPV-Human papaloma virus.  Her doctor said that about 70% of people in Maine have it, 90 in CAlifornia.  I'm not saying this is what it is, but i do recomend going to the doctor about it.

I went to the doctor about 1-1 1/2 ago and they did a pap mear and they did not find anything wrong, said everything was ok. I just noticed the bumps about 2/3 weeks ago.

I noticed those before. I was told nothing was wrong, but I was diagnosed once but I let 3 other professionals have a look and they said it was nothing. They tested but nothing showed. The female body is something else

if you were just at the dr. and nothing was discovered i would assume you are fine. sometimes when you really scrutinize things down there, you tend to notice every tiny little thing and worry. although it is a very good idea to inspect yourself every now and then so you know your body and the changes it makes.

we do have those whitish bumps that almost look like chicken skin. i am laughing now because how attractive would that be to a young person who is unsure or a guy reading this!!!
seriously, if you are that worried, call your dr. and say, i know i was just in on such and such a date. i noticed some bumps and i am a bit worried. they will look at your chart, read the notes and most likely be able to tell you what he/she thinks they are over the phone OR have you come in if its that much of a concern. i think its great you care about your body the way you do. you only have one, take care of it.
oh, by the way, i was a bit surprised about those stats concerning maine and calif.??? sounds strange to me but what do i know?

I have also had these bumps, I just had sex about a week ago, and that is not who I am I dont go around having sex, but I believe I have had white bumps for awhile, but I guess now that I see that I had sex I guess they were more noticeable. It worries me because it was a mistake on my part and my parents definatly would not approve and I dont approve, (sorry rambling, worried can you tell?) I just dont want anything to be wrong with me, one big bump just recently appeared today, and I just randomly bled just once. But I think that has happened to me before, I just want someone to tell me what is going on!!

PLEASE HELP

I also have those white bumps. I had sex with my boyfriend one time, and then we broke up. Now I am worried because everyone says that he is very dirty with diseases. None of my friends know that I had sex with him, and I can't tell them that I did or they will assume that I am also dirty. But I really need somewhere to go to get tested. I don't know if they bumps are from him or not. We had sex once, and I didn't noticed the bumps until about a month after we broke up. I don't know what to do.

The white bumps, if they look like little spots, are nothing more than fatty deposits which are perfectly normal for men and women. They're not anything to be concerned about and they usually increase as you go thru teen years so they're all over inside. No not very pleasant, but noone really mentions it so every teenager is shocked and horrified when they discover them! But really...nothing to worry about! :)
Best place to get tested is any GUM (genito-urinary medicine) clinic...or the American equivalent.

I am kind of getting mixed messages here. I had the HPV Cervical Cancer shot, and Im kind of lookin at genital warts or whatever. See I noticed like 4 small white bumps around my vagina.
I don't know if this is cause I shave down there?
Yet when I have sex with a guy we always use a condom.

so i have discovered 4 or 5 white bumps on the inside of my vagina. They don't itch or hurt at all but I'm not sure how long they have been there.

They are kinda scattered around, but nobody that I have been with has said anything about white bumps on them and i usually use condoms....

Do you think this is anything to worry about??

I'm freaking out....

so i just got back from the crotch doctor and she said that everything looks good down there...so my white bumps were nothing so maybe thats a little bit of hope for you....

I had sex with a guy who has had many many partners.. About a week later A pimple like bump showed up on the skin by my vagina. It started itching alot at first and it was Red. Now it has like a white top on it and it is extremely painful. It is only one bump so I dont think it is an STD.. But if anybody could help me out please let me know! Im kind of scared

It sounds like I had the same exact pimple like bump that you have/had i went to the doc cuz i was freaked out; the doc sent tissue to lab and it came back negative of anything. (i have been w/my husband for 15yrs) anyway it was nothing the doc said 99% of people have a type of herpy and dont even know it sometimes you will have the virus but nothing could even show up for 10years. Its really annoying but nothing to be worried about. I have noticed it comes and goes around my menstral cycle. Im 35 so im thinking im just getting older and starting to notice different things going on with my body. If it seems to get worse i would see the doc. but i've only had it a couple of times and since the doc said it was nothing im not too worried about it. Try not to be to worried but if it doesnt go away seeing the doc allways makes you feel better. Good Luck

I'm not sexually active and I never have been, but I've noticed a LOT of white bumps around my vagina. Not inside or around the pink part, just on the outsides. They itch sometimes, and I don't know what to do. Any help?

Sounds like everyone here could use a rundown of hpv and herpes-

First of all, while condoms can CERTAINLY help to decrease your chances of contracting hpv or hsv (herpes), these stds are both viruses in the skin. The problem is that condoms do not cover all of the skin, so skin to skin contact still occurs even with proper use of a condom. A condom will decrease your chance of contracting hpv by 70% during intercourse with someone who has hpv.

Some facts about hpv:
There are two types of hpv- low risk and high risk. Low risk causes genital warts (although many people never do have symptoms) and high risk has the potential to cause cervical cancer but does NOT cause genital warts. In fact,a  woman with high risk hpv has ZERO symptoms. Men are NOT ever tested for hpv. The only way a man will ever know he has contracted hpv is if it is a low risk strain and he experiences genital warts.

Some facts about genital warts:
Genital warts are flesh colored or the same color as the surrounding skin. They do not hurt or itch. They can not be popped because there is nothing inside. While most sites state that they have a cauliflower like shape, this isn't true for all warts or even most warts. They can be any shape. They can be large or small. They can appear lone or in a group. They may be flat or raised or they may appear as skin tags.

Some stats about hpv in general:
It is estimated that by the age of 50, 80% of the population will have an hpv infection.

In closing, hpv has periods of being active and being dormant. An hpv test will only return a positive result for an ACTIVE infection. So if you contracted a strain of hpv which then went dormant, you would test negative for hpv.

Some facts about herpes:
There are two strains. Hsv1 and hsv2. Hsv1 occurs mostly on the mouth but can also occur on the genitals. Hsv2 occurs mostly on the genitals but can also occur on the mouth.

Some stats about herpes:
80% of the population has a herpes infection
70% of these will never experience symptoms
1 in five women have genital herpes
1 in 4 men have genital herpes

Some facts about cold sores/herpes outbreaks:
Hsv causes cold sores on the mouth and likewise outbreaks on the genitals. It's a common misconception that when someone has a cold sore, they have it because they are sick and not because of herpes. Cold sores are caused by herpes. When an individual with herpes has the flu or a cold, their immune system is down so to speak, which causes them to experience a cold sore. This is because the frequency of cold sores are determined by how well the immune system handles the virus.

Herpes lesions are likely to itch and may be painful. Likely herpes lesions will cause a burning sensation while urinating. I have read this is because of the urine coming into contact with an open sore basically. Herpes lesions/outbreaks last 1-2 weeks. They form as sores with fluid/puss inside. The sores will break open, oozing puss. Then the sores will scab over and heal.

FYI: If your boyfriend has a cold sore and performs oral sex on you, you can get genital herpes.  

In closing, std testing does NOT include herpes testing. Free clinics are funded to perform hsv cultures (taken from the sore/lesion) but they are NOT funded to perform hsv blood tests.

Also, it's not irregular to experience pimples "down there." If you do get one and you're worried about it, I assure you it is NOT because of hpv. However, you can always go to your local free clinic and have a culture taken for hsv (herpes).

There is also a condition which is a bartholin cyst. What this is a gland down there which is basically clogged. Some resolve on their own, usually within a day. Others may require medical treatment.

Remember to always practice safe sex:)
Your sexual health is in YOUR hands, don't count on your partner to protect it.

I got tested about a year ago for  sexually transmitted  diseases, and it came up positive for HPV. I'm at low risk, the last time I checked, but I was worried about these small hard white bumps on my vagina. It started off as one, but now there is five....I am also 6 months pregnant. Is this from HPV, being pregnant, or something else????

Last night I took a shower and was washing and I felt a ruff spot on the inside lips of the vagina.  I look in the mirror and was shocked.  I saw a bunch of white bumps in a line on the inside lips at the top along the sides and the bottom.  They looked like the moles that people have that hang off the skin but white.  I was amazed I never noticed them before, or maybe it just happened a couple days earlier.  I went to the doctor today and he told me he was almost sure it is HPV and warts, the only reason he didn’t say 100% is because I am 6 ½ months pregnant so he can’t do the actual testing on me right now.  He burned them off even though when I went home and looked in the mirror it looked exactly the same.  I am posting this because last night I looked at this forum and noticed everyone freaking out over the same thing but no one came back and answered what happened to them.

OK so I know apparently, a lot of people are having this problem but a couple of weeks ago, I have discovered a white round looking hard lump/bump about 2 mm on the inside of the flab of skin sourounding my vagina. I am only 14 and never had sex, or got oral or gave or anything. But I'm really worried because it is not going away, I'm pretty sure its not cancer because its not abnormally shaped, but I cant be sure. I fugure I should go to the doctor and get it checked out, but its not like I'm old enough to drive to a free cliniqu so I don't know how to confront my mom about it. And if someone could give me a couple of possibilities of what it could be that would also be great. Thanks sooo much and please please please answere because I am really scared

OMG!!!! OK. So the last time I've had sex was in December 2008 and the guy I had sex with used an old condom on me, and it was latex which I also seem to be allergic to. So a week later after we had sex I had an appointment. Going into the appointment I had these little bitty bumps on the lips of vagina and the Doctor said it looked like genial warts. Now, I've taken 2 Gardasil shots and the Doctor told me that everything was clear and I didn't have any STD's of the sort. So a couple weeks later it disappears and everything is fine. Around April, I went to get a Brazillian for PROM. After getting my Brazillian, a white bump kind of inside of my vagina at the bottom of the opening I got this white bump thing and it's been there ever since. I didn't have sex on PROM night because I didn't know exactly what it was. It doesn't hurt or anything, it's just there. Can anyone tell me what there bumps ended up being and what mines could be?

alright well im young, and stupid.. well not so stupid.. i lost my virginity a couple months back and me and that partner just did it once and used a condom of course. after that i made sure i kept a close eye on my "downstairs" and nothing appeared differently... its been about six months since then and i had sex again but with a different guy ( my almost boyfriend) yea i know... not so smart... but he did wear a condom.. this was litterally just about three days ago... and i was in the shower today and decided to check myself out down there... i noticed this one tiny little thing.. its not exactly a bump its more of a like... it looks like a piece of dry skin kind of just sitting there but i tried to pull on it and it really hurt. im too nervous to tell my mom im not a virgin and WAY too nervous for the doctor.. even though i know the doctor is the smartest choice... does anyone know anything of this... or at least heard of anything like that???

right folks  STOP WORRYING  worked in gynae for years small white hard lumps that look like chicken skin or pimples are not an STD  or  infection or cancer or HPV virus they are plain and simply small fatty deposits that every woman gets  weather she is sexually active or not   they can get quite big at times   they can be squeezed out but this can be quite painful  these spots do not itch but can be more noticible after sexual intercourse . so  certainly if you have an itch , discharge or any ulcerated area get it  CHECKED but the small white lumps are only fat deposits

update on Small white spots

Sebaceous glands (also known as 'Fordyce spots') - hard white, yellowish or skin-coloured little bumps that may be found all over the skin of the penis and scrotum in men, and the vulva in women. Sebaceous glands produce a substance called sebum, which keeps the skin healthy.

I am having the same symptoms of white bumps on my inner labia and I honestly have been worried about it for the whole time Ive been waiting for my doctors appointment. From the things that I have read I'm guessing that these white bumps are HPV, I honestly had no idea that HPV was so prevelant in the young adult population. I just turned 20 and have had sex with 2 people that I loved very much only a handful of times. I was wondering if anyone who has experienced being diagnosed with HPV has any advice about dating. I am afraid that I am going to be alone or rejected if I am diagnosed with HPV which I am almost 100 percent sure I will be. How do you approach the subject with those you date? Do you reccomend at this young age telling your friends especially when they act so immature about things like this when they have happened to others? Also is the treatment fast? Painful? Any information on HPV about treatment or relationships would be helpful please, thanks a lot and I wish everyone else well I know what it feels like to be scared, I feel like damaged goods now. :(

Hi I am a 20 year old female and I noticed about a month ago I had White pimple like spots around the vaginal opening. It started off as two and has increased and I've realised two more In the opening. They're small but prominant, not flat. I get no irritation or pain from them but I'm still worried. What 1redfox said was very reassuring but I'm passed my teen years now. My boyfriend has only had sex with me and he says I shouldn't worry, he is certain he's all fine down below so it can't be an STD otherwise I'd have passed it on to him as we have had a lot of sex. I'm plucking up the courage to go to the GUM clinic but I'm still a bit nervous about it. Most things I've read seem to state that this is just normal and a natural burden of life. But it's still a bit vague as I can't seem to find any pictures. If anyone can relate to what I have from the details I've given then that's be great.

the problems with the white bumps appeared on the forum for labial itching - please see my post about fungus!  As I was typing my comments I realised that using a laptop was not helping my labial health. What we all have in common, I suspect, is that we sit with the laptops on our laps.  The heat, and even maybe some radiation from the laptop, is heating up our labias and providing a good breeding ground for all sorts of problems.  I have now put my laptop on a shallow oblong basket turned upside down and put it over my knees.  That together with the kaolin or talc which I recommended seems to be stopping the itching etc.  Good luck all.

Hey! Im 15 and I have this bump on my vagina, im pretty worried...But I've had this before, its like the 3rd bump...Usually its goes away in about a week and hurts very little, so I don't worry about it..But this one is hurting more than normal, but I've only had it for like 3 days...I've never seen a doctor for it, never told anyone about it (its kinda embarrassing) I've never had sex before, so it can't be a diesase or anything right??

Hi, I sorta have a similar story, I was a virgin till about a year ago when I met my boyfriend, we are competly in love however, there's a catch. Bout 5 months ago I had 3 weird painful bumps around my vag, I didnt really think anything of it tll I went to the doctor and was diagnose with herpes. Worst moment of my whole entire life, we are still together and we help each other, but it has changed so many things in my life. I'm afraid to have kids now, and it's just embarrassing, Jesus....had sex once with the person I love and it happened to me. Be careful ladies, I'm only 16 and my life is changed forever, you probably think it will never happen to you, but 1 in 4 people have it, which means if you have sex with more than three people, you probably have it

The tiny white pimple type (white heads) bumps around the labia outside of the vagina are fatty deposits. They are harmless, though gross to look at and feel.  Yes they are very freaky and scary if you don't understand what they are.  It's pretty much like acne.  Sweating, perfume-type wipes, etc. causes them to worsen.  Someone mentioned keeping their laptop in their laps and the heat making things worse.  Don't try to pop them, you can get an infection and besides that hurts like heck!  If you're worried, see your doc. tell your mom, don't be afraid to reach out to another woman or your boyfriend.  We are all human and this is a natural occurance, nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed of.  Sometimes they aren't as bad as other times.... keep a journal.  I freaked out too when I first noticed them, but no matter what else was going on in my brain, common sense kept telling me it was like any other white bump under the skin. Some kind of clogged pore.  good luck ladies and God bless ya'll!

There is this benign condition called "vestibular papillae". It's unrelated to HPV and Herpes, and no one really knows 'what causes it'. A similar condition is in men called "pearly penile papillae". Go on google images to take a peak. There aren't many female pics, but I am guessing it's because it's very under-reported/so unrecognized by general practitioners that it falls under the 'normal looking vagina' prototype.

Totally normal occurrence in women, and men. These ARE NOT stds. Go to the doctor if you are worried about them, get a blood test. From what I've read about genital warts, generally, they are kind of rough. Herpes look like blisters. Keep in mind... that not all HPV causes warts... and not all HPV will give you cervical cancer. In fact, a common misconception is that HPV is the end of the world. Humans catch HPV strains ALL THE TIME. Not all HPV is sexually transmitted, and only a few strains actually cause serious issues. Many people don't realize they have multiple strains of HPV, because the symptoms are mild or nonexistent. I think the HPV scare has turned to hysteria. Women's lives medicalized as it is. It's like any little bump out of place is some kind of omen. We have been taught to fear our vaginas people.

If you have been tested for strains that cause warts or have the potential to cause cancer and they have come back negative, you're probably okay. Realize that we all have some HPV in us all... and it's totally fine because they aren't the strains that cause cancer/warts/bumpies.

As previously stated, if you believe these vaginal bumps are an STD/HPV, the only way you can find out definitively is by getting the doctor to test you. Practice safe sex! USE BARRIER METHODS!

I got rid of the pea sized bump near my vagina after discovering it a week ago. What I did was put an ice cube in a paper towel and held it on and off against the bump for a few minutes. This was after I washed myself only with water in the shower. Then I took a blow dryer to dry the area. The dryer was on the coolest setting. The bump got significantly smaller within 3 hours. I repeated this 3 times, once each day since, and now it is gone.

The cold kills bacteria, and the dryer keeps the moisture down. Seems this combination was miraculous for me. Hope it works for you if you try it. Let me and others know.

I am only 14 years old and a few days ago I have been very irritated in the vaginal area and while taking a shower I noticed three tiny bumps that looked just like white heads. I had never had a problem like this before so I was very concerned and did some research. I finally thought that they could just be normal white heads. Then I noticed that they're are over ten more in just a few days. I'm very concerned now and am scared if what they may be!

Hey those bumps are completely normal.... You have probably had them since ur mestral cycle began sometimes they will enlarge after you have sex or itch ... If they itch then that means yeast has gotton into the pores. When I noticed them I freaked( like literally) I went and got tested by 4 different doctors and they all told me the same thing see I have major phobias with std's so if I find something wrong I tend to freak the hell out and get tested... My docotrs have ensured me that I am std free ... those are the glands that help you get wet before intercorse if they are itcy that means the yeast has gotten in them and sometimes they swell and can be pretty painful..stress also plays a big role in it.. Sometimes the doctor will remove them if you keep having issues but no ur not going to die and no you aren't doomed to some screwed up std I hope this helps but trust me u would feel much better once u get checked by a real doctor

Are these just bumps or blisters?  If they are blisters which break open and heal, you might have herpes.  Let me know.
Blank
1998316_tn?1328976356
No, this isn't miraculous or a cure.  Maybe temporary, but just because it went away doesn't mean it won't come back.  Look up what herpes looks like and see if it looks familiar.  Usually herpes won't come out for the first time a few days after sex but then again, you said it was the first time you noticed it, which makes me think it could have come out before without you knowing it.  Is it a bump or does it have a small blister head that pops and clears up?  Yes, a hot dryer will help try it up and fast and help it go away faster, but not a permanent cure if it is an std.  Please keep me informed.  If you don't wanna post it for everyone to see, you can leave me a note.  Good luck.

That sounds exactly like a staph infection...you MUST go to see a doc! The boils/eruptions come back at different times for everyone and some lay dormant for yrs. Although staph (mrsa) has really become common it mainly poses serious danger in the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. The doc will give u bactroban ointmnt to put in ur nose (where staph colonizes) and some oral antibiotics. If u dont have the money, go to the health clinic!

These white bumps are white heads, they can only popped after tearing the surface with a needle, so the whiteheads may have an exit after squeezing it. Although it is a little painful.
I also as tested negative for stds and my GNyno told me they are nothing to worry about.
