Red sore bumps on the vagina.

I recently found a bump on the upper part of my vagina near where my underwear sits and where i also shave. Well i freaked out and put some ointment on it and covered it with a bandage. if started to go away but than i got another on my stomach under my belly button also where i shave. So i repeated what i did to it as i did to the other and they are almost gone but i went and shaved again and some more popped up by my bikini line and one a little lower from my bikini line. all these bumps are in places i shave so i am not sure if they are just razar bumps or herpes? one looks like a pimple with a white head. I am only 19 and i dont know what do to or how to react. I have no one to talk to and seriously need some help. Please if you can help comment.

thanks for query.

Herpes bumps appear in crops not one by one. What you might be having is  infected boils of skin. You might have some allergy to something like your shaving razor, or some cream that you applying. Please maintain good local hygiene and you will not have any problems. You can apply local antibiotic cream on it and it will respond to it, in case where you more of them, you may need a course of oral antibiotics.

Wishing you good health.

These look like infected hair follicles after shaving and boils. You should keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics and shaving for a few days. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment and calamine lotion are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
