Is pimple in clitoris sign of STD?

Hello I thought I had a pimple right above my clitoros because I have gotten them before how ever in the last day or so while it was healing it got a lot bigger and more painful and swollen what should I do? Is it an STD? It feels like there is 2 bumps now instead of one but no skin is broken and nothing is coming out

Dermatologist 's  Response

I can understand your concern for the pimple in clitoris region. It appears to be simple boil rather than an STD. This is a condition of inflammation and infection of the oil gland. As the clitoris area has bit soft and fibrous skin so it causes more than usual of the pain.

I suggest my patients to take an anti-inflammatory medication such as diclofenac or paracetamol or Ibupreofen for one to two times after meals. You can apply an antibacterial cream such as mupirocin or gentamycin.

I suggest you to not try to touch or pinch or pop the area as can cause further spread.
All the best.
