27 years, pimple like bump on the "vagina lips" and white discharge. Any ideas what this could be?

Hello, I m a 27 years old female and have a steady sex partner. I m not on pills, but we do use condoms. Just a couple of weeks ago I started having this bump right on my vagina lips ( so sorry I don t know the medical term for it). I m clean person. And I usually have this bumps right on the area where hair is present, but this time it is more like inside, hence, right on the vagina lips area. It went away and moved to a different spot and still close to the vagina area. So it went from the lips to some where near it and back to the lips area again. I still have it with a combination of white discharge. I m ruling it as a yeast infection. The lips area is really swollen because of the bump. I don t feel that burning sensation when you pee and it doesn t itch at all. Although, it causes me discomfort probably because its irritated and sore I m a bit scared that it could be herpes, but I just can t seem to find any symptoms of herpes. :/ Any ideas what this could be? Thanks for your help!

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
the small irregular swellings you saw might be allergic in origin. They are not likely to be herpes as herpes is associated with painless sores.You need to use a local antiseptic cream with steroid base locally and also take an oral antibiotic to rule out any superimposed infection.

Good evening. I ve been with the same person for almost a year and we are sexually active. A couple days after having sex earlier this week I discovered some bumps on my vaginal lips 3 to be exact. I first thought it was razor burn but they hurt to touch. My vagina is swollen and is very uncomfortable I m leaking a clear liquid all the time and it burns when I pee. I have also just found 3 clear pimple like things on my clitoris. Could a yeast infection cause this? Also having cramps.

i have went to a couple of doctors for discharging and they have all said it is a yeast infection but they have gave me medication and i have used creams but the discharging is still there, it is white and it smells horrible. plus i have white pimples in the inside of my vagina and some bumps. i thought it could be herpes but i looked up some pictures and my pimples and bumps look nothing like the ones on the pictures for genital herpes. i am planning on going to a gynecologist for a more precise answer but i am not sure what test i actually need for these problems. help?

Hello, so i earlier today i took a shower and like when i got out of shower i noticed that i had a small pimple on my outer vaginal lip. It s like a small white pimple and like i never had this so i started to freak out a little and i never had any sexual intercourse so i think i got this from work, basically when i got to the bathroom and i take the toilet paper my hands are dirty and it might be the cause of it ? I just wanna know if there s anything i can do or any product i can buy ? I work at a pharmacy and i wasn t sure about what i could get and from what i read on google it isn t anything that serious but i don t know if i should pop this pimple or no ?

Hi, I am going to schedual a doctors appointment, but I am just freaking out because I think I could possibly have herpes.. I have only had 4 sex partners.. I m 25, female.. I assumed it was a yeast infection or uti.. but now i m not sure.. It started the day after I shaved down their with a new razor.. so i assumed it was a razor burn/ possible cut.. the next couple days it was very itchy.. but that is common after i shave while hair is growing back.. it also would burn when I d wipe.. it was right by the opening of the vagina.. both sides.. after about 4 days it seems like it was getting better.. each day a little better until it really didn t hurt much at all aout 6 or 7 days later, excep on one side.. finally i got a mirror and looked and i saw a cut.. which i dunno if it was from shaving or what.. by this time i decided it was probably a yeast infection since i was having discharge.. but it was a runny white discharge. I m not exactly sure but after looking online on yeast infecting sites one person said it may be herpes so i researched it.. it was the furthest thing from my mind.. but it turns out.. I m scared it could be.. is their a chance it isn t herpes and its just from shaving or yeast infection.. the other thing.. that is confusing is my urine; unless i drink tons of fluids, is stong in ordor and a little foggy.. which led to me think uti..

I have been experiencing pain and soreness for about eight months or more around my vulva area. Last week after intercourse with my husband of 31 years, my clitoris is in pain and still enlarged. I started a sulpha antibiotic last Friday for cellulitis I got from a bee sting. I thought it was a yeast infection and did a one day treatment and it doesn t seem to have helped. Any ideas?

I have been having a problem for quite a while now where I will come on my period and as I m comin off or after I come off, I experience this same itchy discomfort. Mainly on the inside of my vagina. It is quite like thrush but it never lasts long enough to be thrush. It is not constantly itchy but close to it. I have looked at my vagina and on the inside there is blatant lumps and the skin just inside the opening is really rough. I have been getting a weird discharge where I get loads of clumps of white cottage cheese like discharge. I have washed. I use non perfumes soaps and every time I ve seen a gynaecologist they haven t ever seen anything strange like it so I m guessing the bumps come and go. It also feels quite swollen on the inside. The vulva is quite sore and and raw from itching. Just need some sort of answers as I am going to a gynaecologist tomorro while I still have symptoms. Just been panicking as I ve been hearing about vulva cancer. Thank you
