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.

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 ?

Last month it hurt when I peed, it wasn't a burning feeling, it just hurt when the pee would come out, it came to the point where I was scared to use the washroom because it hurt a lot even to wipe, then I had saw I had gotten a yeast infection, so I took care of and everything stopped, now yesterday I went to pee and I can feel it starting to hurt again, I was told this could be a urinary tract infection but I'm not sure what to do

I was diagnosed with HSV-1 in my genital area and since I was diagnosed I have had issues with constipation. Also, the lips of my vagina are pretty red as well and my groin area seems to be red as well. Doctor thought it may be a yeast infection. I have tried stool softeners and ansoul suppositories because of the constipation and hemmrhoids. I also tried nystatin for on the lips of my vagina too.
I'm still having some discomfort around the anus area and havent had a regular bowel movement for some time.

Im also taking daily treatment for the HSV-1. 400 mg of Acyclovir 1 time a day.
Someone, please help me feel back to "normal"

I have a question for you. I have enamel erosion and I get an urinary yeast infection. Sometimes, when I pee, my urine smells bad. Why is that? Is it because of my enamel erosion, the urinary yeast infection, or something I ate? I am 27 years old. I weigh about 128lbs. I am 5 feet tall.
