What do tiny bumps on the vagina indicate ?

Hi, sometimes an area on the top of my vagina is very itchy, I would scratch it then a small pimple like will appear, only about 3 or 2 of them. Then after a few weeks, it will get darken and peel off, but one of these pimple like has a very hard substance that will maintain hard even if you squash it. what could this be? I also found just one of these on my butt and afterwards i also got a same very hard substance. After getting that substance the skin will have a small hole then later will heal and become a scar. The substance doesn t have any smell, it has a very dark shade of brown color and it s very hard. the size will only range as big as the small ball point if a pen. Should i be worried? help please.

I have a tiny, hard bump inside my vagina, in approximately the G spot. It causes pain on intercourse. Yesterday I visited a new GYN. After a long examination , He said he does not know what the bump is. He said it is NOT an STD, Cancer, Cyst or wart. His advice was to begin Premarin twice a week. I am 59 years old. I got through menopause without taking hormones, I would prefer not to. Is the risk of the vaginal cream great? Could this be surgically removed? The Dr. indicated it is in a difficult to see area. Thank you.

I am eight months pregnant and have, as of two weeks ago been negative for any std s other than herpes. It has literally been years since my last outbreak, but I have noticed itching in the last two days. Upon examination tonight I discovered tiny white bumps on the outside of my vagina. There are probably around 10? What could this be?

Hi my daughter has Folliculitis, her dermatlogist has said.... she has been taken anitbodics for 5-6 week. It seems not to be getting better, she is Asian very senitive skin. It is on her face, both cheeks, terrible place on her chin, under her nose, a nasty place on the calve of her leg and several places on her upper shoulder. In her job she is under alot of stress, takes anit- depressive meds and very OCD. I think the later has alot to do with it. She lives away from me and is planning to visit home in the next few weeks, I m afraid this is going to leave terrible scars, she had done research on this as well... she says sometimes you have it all your life

Hi, I am 29 yrs old female. Few months back I started having skin sores mainly on my thighs and buttocks. initially I thought them to be heat boils and ignored few times. but they kept erupting one after the other continuously after which I visited a doctor who told me that it must be folliculitis and prescribed me antibiotics. after taking the medicine they subsided for a while and then started again. I visited the doctor again and advised me for blood tests for sugar. i have a family history of diabetes and the doctor wanted to rule out the same. As guessed my sugar levels were higher than normal. she advised me on total avoidance of sugar and everyday work out or atleast a walk. i followed it strictly for 2 months and then i could not make time for workout though i am avoiding sugar completely. i started getting those skin sores again with increased intensity. Am scared i might need to start taking medicines else this wont stop. i am scared to check my sugar levels again. Can you give me the possibilities and best solution.
