I have this red bump off to the right of my vagina. I really need your help.
Hi, again, I just have a quick question. My question is I have this red bump (almost like a zit or pimple) off to the right of my vagina but it is in between my vagina and anus but off to the right. Yes, it is humped up like a zit.
I really need your help. I would be so embarrassed if i had to go to a doctor :( HELP!
Hi there, thanks for asking us.
It can be worrying and embarrassing when we notice bumps and lumps. It's possible to get pimples around the vaginal lips. These can be treated and will heal just like a pimple elsewhere on the body.
You can get cysts when lubricating ducts around the vagina get blocked. Sometimes these gets very sore and enlarged. Sometimes a doctor needs to cut them for them to go down and to heal.
You didn't say whether you are sexually active (have done anything sexual with another person). If you are, it's possible that you have caught herpes. Herpes makes a sore that is like a blister or ulcer. But the most likely explanation is just as you say: a pimple.
There's no need to feel embarrassed to see a doctor if something is worrying you. You are looking after your health and it's their job to help with that. Plus, they have seen everything before anyway.
