Have bladder infection. Multiple painful and itchy bumps on labia. What this could be?

Hi, I got diagnosed with a bladder infection yesterday from my general practitioner, however, I have multiple bumps under my labia which are painful and itchy. They don t sound like an STD but I honestly have no idea and don t know whether to go to Centracare or Planned Parenthood to address the issue. What does it sound like this could be?

Dear Mb chapman, I am sorry to know your problem. My advise will be to see a Gynaecologist for proper examination including tests and to get appropriate treatment. I can give you some informations about painful genital "bumps". with pain and itch. The most common causes are Skenes duct cyst. Skenes glands are situated by the side of the urethra and there cyst may form and tends to get infected, similarly inside vagina there are Bartholin glands and cysts may form there and can get infected. Hair follicles can be infected and that can give rise to swelling and pain. Though you mensioned you have not got STD there is one which can give rise to pain and bumps is herpes genitalis. The investigation comprises to take swab from the lesions for culture and sensitvitiy and treament with appropriate antibiotics and where necessary treating surgically. Kindest regards
