What causes itchy bumps on the labia majora while having IBS?

I was just diagnosed with IBS, mostly gargling and indigestion / stomach pain etc. I don t know if it s genetic or anything but my dad has colitis... I was wondering if that s what I could get. Also, I don t know if this is a separate problem or not but, around the same time I started getting stomach pain my labia majora started itching. There are small bumps going up to my anus, the itching or bumps aren t near the vagina or inner the labia minora. I don t know if this is related but I would like to know. It s been 2 months now. I m not sexually active, although the last time I had sex was about 2.5 months ago. Itching seems to get worse around the time of my period. I have all been getting quite bad headaches. I m also quite underweight at 94lbs. And I m 5 3.5 I started getting symptoms about 2 weeks after I got back from Mexico (I was there visiting my boyfriend for a couple months) I ve had blood work, urine test, ultrasound and an h.pylori test... All clean. But I haven t mentioned my itching problems to my gp. Please help. Thanks :)

You continue your IBS medicines. I think you are having fungal vaginal infection. No chances of herpes because having complained for more than one month.

You just try following treatment for 10 days and review. Tab.Levocetirizine 5 mg hs tab.Norflox 400 mg bid, Candex BG cream for external use. Candid vaginal pessaries for 10 days.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

For a few months now, I ve been getting tiny itchy red bumps on my labia majora. I m not sexually active but I was a couple months before it started happening. I went to the doctor a few times. The first time they said it was a bacteria infection. The symptoms came back and I went back a second time about two months later. The gave me the same treatment. About three months later, the itchy red bumps were back again. I went to a different doctor and got check again. I got a pap smear and blood drawn. Everything came back negative so the doctor gave my a jock itch cream. I was wondering if you could give me any answers because I don t think they know. Can you please help?

Hi, I am a 27 year old female, and my last sexual experience was nearly nine months ago. I noticed a small, hard node/pimple-like bump on my labia majora; near my vaginal opening a few days ago. Since then, it had gotten bigger and it is slightly inflamed; hard to the touch; and red. It has a white centre. I m currently unable to see a doctor, and would be glad for some thoughts on what it might be and if there was anything I ought to do until I can go see a doctor (in about three weeks time)? Thanks!

I have a little bump on my labia majora. note, I am also a virgin. so I am kind of sure it can t be an STD. I never ever had any sexual contact with anyone. it doesn t hurt & I can walk & sit down right, I tried to pop it but it is too hard or something, I don t know, it just doesn t pop yet. what could it be? I have had one pimple before & it was like that, it was hard at first but later on it s own almost, I squeezed it just a tiny bit & the bump popped
