Vagina itches, have bumps. Is it folliculitis? Affected by sanitary napkins?

Hello.. I have a question. I have had a little bit of an itching feeling on my vagina for the past three days, and last night I noticed when i was in the shower, i could feel some small bumps and it was very itchy- but in the shower. Today there s a little bit of itchiness and when I checked, the bumps are much smaller. I am wondering if this may be folliculitis .. or may be i was irritated from using the pads - i am almost finished with my period & I just got off birth control- so this is my first time on my period with out using birth control. I m just wondering if this has anything to do with it.. I need an answer.

hi. you probably had some allergic reaction to napkins ,I suppose.It has decreased after you have stopped using them. Nothing to do with birth control pills. You may use Candid B cream for the time being and i will advise you to show the lesions to your dr. what actually they are and also get a pap smear done.
