What could be the reason to have red blisters and open sores in my vagina ?

I m 17, but I ve been having this problem since 13 or 14, before being sexually active with anyone. So I m kind of confused. What are some possible infections I could have if I have recurring blisters and/or open sores that bleed on the fleshy part of my pelvic area? There are no symptoms of infection present on or around the vulva or inside the vagina.

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.
You could be having herpes infection.
Better consult a dermatologist, who will have to examine the lesions, do various tests, including microscopic examination of scrappings from the area, before a firm diagnosis can be made. Once the diagnosis is made proper treatment can be started.

Hi Dear,
Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV 1), is usually acquired orally in childhood. So sexual contact is not mandatory for various types of herpes. It may be acquired by other means as well.
Similarly Herpes Zoster ( Shingles) is caused by reactivation of the virus which previously caused chicken pox, then remains dormant for years and again shows up as shingles..
