Question: i have had a bump on my inner labia for 3 weeks. I've been to 3 doctors and they all said it was not herpes. the bump is sore. do you have any suggestions?

Brief Answer:
It may be from a superimposed infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear and thanks for your query.

As per your attached picture everything seems to be normal.
Where the bump is because I don't see anything,your labia minora doesn't appear
Please upload another picture with that bump.

While three doctors have confirmed that you haven't herpes infection ,why do you insist that you have this one infection.
Exact diagnosis of herpes simplex can be done only by inspection of the affected area.

If the bump is sore and doctors have excluded herpes infection have Sitz baths and local creams with corticoides.

All the best

hi I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant and just noticed how extremely my inner-vaginal area is. Possibly the labia minora..not sure. Way inside of my vagina it is blue looking, hard swollen and extremely uncomfortable. Feels like pressure is right down on that spot. Ouch. I feel I should mention I just had bad constipation a half hour ago in case that could be related to this. Help explain what this pressure and swollen feeling is! thank you

Hi, After not having sex with my boyfriend for quite awhile we had sex, which was a bit forceful/not nearly lubricated enough. I didn t hurt too much right after, but the next day my inner labia minora were very sore. I took a mirror to myself and noticed definite inflammation and redness, also around the vestibule/vaginal openning. It has remained and gotten worse over the past two days. I m not sure if the sex and irritation are even correlated. Just wondering if this is something that can happen from something like this or if this could be a medical condition I need to look into? I m not covered and can t afford a prescription until my next pay day.
