Doctor :   Are you with me?
User :   hi
User :   yes I am
Doctor :   Please go ahead with your medical query
User :   two months ago i went to my OBGYN because I had a couple bumps on my outer labia he said not to worry they are probably sebaceous cyst. Two weeks ago more showed up after I went for a long long run... I did a couple 20 to 30 minute hot baths and after that they started itching... I went to the doctors today and he wasnt sure what they were, one looked like some kind of wart... so he burned them off, should i be worried?
Doctor :   Both the sebaceous cyst and Wart are not dangerous
Doctor :   Both of them would not do great on treatment
Doctor :   They recur even after treatment
Doctor :   So your situation right now is just wait and watch
Doctor :   Do not prick them as they may get infected
Doctor :   Put hot fomentation if you have pain over them
User :   if they are gential warts are they kind of HPV?
Doctor :   Genital warts are mostly because of HPV
Doctor :   So protected intercourse is what I advice you
User :   ive been with my boyfriend for 7 years
Doctor :   Ok
User :   and two years ago I had unprotected sex with someone esle but go tested and nothing came up
Doctor :   If both are you monogamous then the chance of HPV is far less
User :   can you get more than one sebaceous cyst at one time?
Doctor :   Yes
User :   I shave down there... can they group togeyther if they grow bigger?
User :   ihave had sebaceous cyst down there before but only one at a time
Doctor :   You can have two at a time, or one after other
Doctor :   They cannot group together
User :   there were four bumps that were next to eachother
Doctor :   Sebaceous cysts cannot merge together
Doctor :   if those bumps are something else, I am not sure
Doctor :   Do they have pus collection?
Doctor :   Do you see a punctum or hole on each of them?
User :   no i didnt see any punctum or hole
User :   i never had any pus collection
Doctor :   Sebaceous cysts have that
Doctor :   I think you better need a physical examination of the area by a Dermatologists if your regular physician is not able to determine them
Doctor :   exactly
Doctor :   Else you can ask a Dermatologist here by sending the photographs of the local area
Doctor :   and also your complete query
Doctor :   WWW.WWWW.WW
User :   i take that back. i could see punctum, but if i put a needle to them only blood would come out
Doctor :   If there is a punctum it is most likely to be a sebaceous cyst
Doctor :   Please do not put the needle
Doctor :   It gets infected
Doctor :   Sebaceous cyst can be easily scooped out
Doctor :   You should see a Dermatologist / General Surgeon for that
