Red bumps on vagina post shaving, burning sensation. Razor burn?

Hi. Okay I shaved down there the other day, and now I have little red bumps all over my vagina . They re not grouped together, just spread out and they don t have any fluid in them or anything they just burn but I m freaking out at what it could be. I think it s just razor burn cause I was in a hurry when I did it and didn t use shaving cream or anything.

hi jessicachristinebryantt,
Thanks for your query,
The symptoms you have given seem to show a condition called Hidradenitis Suppurativa,. In this case, sweat glands around the genital skin get blocked causing infections. The infection comes out in small pimple like lesions.
The genital area of the body suffers more heat, sweat and bacteria growths than the other parts making it more vulnerable to skin infections.

Genital skin has more nerve endings than rest of your body skin.Excessive use of oil and lubricants can also cause pimples in your private part.

Usually you keep your genitals covered most of the time, which is another catalyst to pimples.Remember, that pimples can invade the genitals of any person, Man or woman, black or white, you are not immune to pubic pimples.

It is essential to know the causes of pubic pimples before entering the path of treatment. Generally there is not any single cause you can pinpoint. The causes vary but the usual causes are:

1.Harsh detergents, abrasive soaps and over washing.
3.Unhealthy diet.
4.Poor maintenance of personal hygiene.
5.Hormonal changes in teenagers.
6.Diseases instigating hormonal changes.
7.Changes in hormones in case of women during menstruation and pregnancy.
8.If pimples occur after the intake of a particular drug switch off to an alternative.
9.Polluted and dirty environment also cause pimples.

I suggest you to Consult a gynecologist immediately for further medication,
I hope you get well soon,
Dr.G.Gayatri Devi.
