Skin infection

So i went to the doctor again because the bumps came back on my vagina, and he stated that i have a common skin infection that is common amoung men and women. I am still worrying even though i got the cream. There are 6 bumps and one of them is bigger than the others and it has white puss inside. I was wondering if it is a common skin condition?

Hello,
These bumps sound like folliculitis. Pls 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. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed.Pls consult a dermatologist in that case.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
