Itchy red bump on labia. Why is it growing back? Why milky discharge?

Hello, I have this itchy red bump that keeps appearing on my left labia . I shave a lot down there, and it seems to happen when the hair starts growing back. I m confused though because its in the same spot everytime. My doctor has taken a culture of it before, and said it was nothing. It has to be something? I also seem to get a milky like discharge before the bumps appear and start itching. Help me!

Thank you for the query.

Red bump after some time of shaving is caused by hair follicle inflammation due to its obstruction. Pus starts to accumulate what gives pain and redness. Hair can get outside the skin and starts to grow inside.
Some people are just prone to such bumps. Hormonal changes can also cause such bumps.
I suggest you to wash this area before shaving and also do it with sterile shaver. Try to keep it clean and dry after shaving as well. If you will notice that a hair starts growing under the skin, try to puncture it with needle.

Hope this will help.
