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 ?

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.

I was recently on a round of amoxocillin for a tonsillitis infection, when I also had a yeast infection present at the time of my visit. I was also prescribed diflucan, and took two during the course of the antibiotics (10 days) to clear the infection, and have been eating lots of yogurt and kefir everyday since. I ordered a swab test at the first visit which came back negative for candida, much to my confusion. However, after the two diflucan symptoms subsided. 3 weeks later the tonsillitis returned, along with a UTI. I was prescribed another round of amoxicillin, and I have been 5 days, or halfway through, my second round. About three days ago, two days in to the second round of antibiotics, I developed yet another yeast infection.. or so I thought. I have taken two diflucan, still taking kefir and yogurt, to no avail. I had noticed that the discharge had no yeasty odor, which is usually very obvious to me, yet the symptoms all pointed to the worst yeast infection I ve ever experienced. Tonight I tried a clotrimazole suppository from an OTC 7-day treatment pack, along with acidophilus supplements, and within an hour was experiencing an even more painful and itchy, almost burning reaction. Upon inspection, I noticed very severe swelling of the inner labia, and even a tiny bit of bleeding from the now completely raw, sore and swollen inner labia. It seems to be a reaction to the clotrimazole, which I plan to discontinue. I am curious about the possibility of a lactobacilli overgrowth, or cytotolytic infection, as a result of my overzealous consumption of probiotic foods. Even moreso, I am interested in finding a way to put this problem to rest! Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
