Brief Answer:
Need some more information from you ma'am

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query and images with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.

If you do not mind I would like to know a little more before I can actually comment on the most likely cause ma'am. They are:
-Are you sexually active? If yes, is your partner a known or unknown person?
-The current urinary tract infection is the first time you got an infection or have you experienced the same before
-Are you currently on treatment for the infection? if yes, what are the names of the medications?
-Have you recently shaved the affected region (the vagina and around)?
-Do you have any vaginal discharge? if yes, what colour is it and do you have any odour from the vagina?
-When exactly did the bumps appear? When did you last shave the affected region prior to the appearance of the bumps?

I would greatly appreciate your kind response to my questions. But in the meantime, please apply warm compresses the the affected region several times a day and continue with sitz baths (along with epsom salt) if possible 2-3 times a day ma'am.

I am sure everything will soon be fine ma'am. Do not worry ma'am.

Best wishes.

Yes, I am sexually active and only with my boyfriend of 1 year.
This is my 3rd UTI and no, I'm not taking any medication at the time. I'm just trying to get rid of with natural remedies.
I haven't shaved in 3 days.
And my vaginal discharge is white. On Monday, so 4 day ago.

Thank you so much .

Brief Answer:
Folliculitis;that and UTI need antibiotic coverage

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again ma'am and thank you so much for that information.

In my opinion, this is most probably due to the act of shaving which has resulted in irritation of one or more hair follicles resulting in a condition called folliculitis. Folliculitis is treated with hot compresses, sitz baths with epsom salt and the use of antibiotics.

As you also quite clearly have a urinary tract infection, I would strongly advice you to visit a doctor to get evaluated and initiated with a course of antibiotics which will not only help treat the urinary tract infection, but also the folliculitis. This means that both your conditions will be treated with one form of treatment.

I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.

Best wishes.

Brief Answer:
Mild or XXXXXXX bath with warm water

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again ma'am.

A sitz bath is a kind of bath in which an individual sits in warm water only from about his/her waist till above the mid-thigh region. Generally immersing their genitalia and anal opening in the warm water. This helps to reduce inflammation and irritation, and when epsom salt is added it helps to disinfect as well.

I hope this is clear ma'am. I am really happy to know I could help you. Please do not ever hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always available to help.

Best wishes.

Recent questions on  Vaginal discharge

doctor1 MD

I am a 19 year-old female. I started having sex with my boyfriend in February. He is the only sex partner I have ever had. Recently, I experienced an orange-colored vaginal discharge and was present for 2 days and in a light quantity. Then the discharged changed to a yellow color and there was a slight odor, but not very fishy. It itches and I've been using anti-itch creme which helps a little. Last night, I had sex with my boyfriend and it hurt a little. I feel like I have an infection but not sure what kind or if I should see a doctor. Or do I have an STD?
