Is an std or just a razor burn ?

Can someone help me ? Ok so i shaved the outside of my vagina, not the inside and now my hair is growing in with red bumps. should i be worried n go to the doctor or just wait till it goes away? I believe it was a razor burn. thanks

Sounds like a razor rash - get yourself some cream like E45 and it should help, and after razoring the area put some alvera Gel on it - helps keep it cool and can help stop the rash coming up in the first place. Make sure you clean very very well or you could get Infected hair follicals in that area (bacteria on the skin causing Spots filled with puss and they itch and hurt and can be 5mm-10mm in diamiter)

Go to a doctor, you might have used a old infected razor. Take necessary treatment soon.

Hi! I had a few small itchy red bumps on my labia a week ago while I was on my cycle. I thought it was just razor burn , or a yeast infection so I put some monostat on it and it went away after my cycle was over. I had sex with my boyfriend, and now he has red bumps all over his pubic region, and he is worried that it might be something serious like an STD . I have never had small itchy bumps on me before and I haven t had sex with anyone else since we have been dating. What could this be? I m scared it might be herpes , but many other females online say it is a possible yeast infection. I also have bad smelling urine. Please help!

Hi I once shaved with someone elses razor and then had unprotected sex with a byfriend of mine who i believe could have been sleeping with random men. I did this over 3 years ago. When i first did this i started having burning and itching a little while afterwards and then i had developed small pink bumps around and inside my vaginal hole. This lasted for a week or two and then the bumps disappeared from the outside of my vaginal hole and went further up inside my vagina i think. Now to this day i have never seen any bumps again even since the first time i saw them 3 years ago. But i am still have burning, itching, swelling and chronic slightly smelly vaginal discharge. I have been to two different gynocologists this whhole time and they both say i am STD free. I have been tested for everything under the sun (except genital warts). So if this is no STD, what could this be?
