What does a painful bump on the vagina indicate?

I have a very round bump on the front of my vagina. It s painful to the touch. I thought it may be a hair bump but I don t see an ingrown hair. I also have a couple of other bumps. One on my butt near the crack and one on my thigh right below and to the outside of my buttcheek. The one on the thigh is very itchy and it has a white center. The one on my butt I can t see. Both are painful to the touch. What could they be? I can provide pictures.

Hi,

Based on your description, it appears that you could be having bacterial infection of the skin called 'furuncle'.
Kindly do the following to overcome the symptoms.
1. Cleanse the area with mild antiseptic solution like Savlon twice daily.
2. After drying, apply skin cream containing Fuscidic acid.
3. Take anti-inflammatory analgesic medication like Ibuprofen twice daily after food.
4. Apply hot packs over the lesions thrice daily.
5. Avoid sexual activities till the lesions heal completely.
6. Wear loose fitting undergarments to avoid friction.
Maintain good personal hygiene. Gradually, you should be able to get better and be back to normal.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ashakiran S, General & Family Physician
