Question: Heat bump size spots/blemishes just inside vulva/vagina, which have been there for months ...Approx 6 in a row from base of vagina working up on left side. I would not know they are there apart from the raised blemishes.

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns. The multiple small raised spots inside vulva but outside vagina could be probably due to infection of hair follicle. It must be long standing. If they are not bothering you by itching, ulcer etc.... I suggest that you can ignore them. If you have trouble with those, please see a gynecologist who will remove them by a small procedure. If they are not causing problem, just leave them as it is as they won't harm.

I hope I answered your query.

Thanks for reply.

As the age advances, the density of hair as well as skin tone changes which makes displacement of earlier existing follicles to certain extent.

Since you are 65 years of age, that is a possibility. I suggest you get the lesions examined by a gynecologist for more local examination and associated factors which may be difficult for you to examine alone.

Please get back to me in case if you have any more doubts.

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.
