Blisters on Vagina – symptoms

QUESTION – As a student from the medical colleague, I am preparing the brochure “Women Health – symptoms of dangerous situations”. HPV blisters on vagina could be a dangerous signal for disease. What are main symptoms of the blisters on vagina? Which kinds of the blisters on vagina are dangerous and/or risky?

Blisters on Vagina – ANSWER from experts

Generally speaking the blister on vagina is a symptom itself but women with the blisters on vagina could have also some other symptoms:

Blisters on vagina

  • Skin lumps on the vagina;
  • Skin ulcers on the vagina or labia;
  • Vaginal ulcer;
  • Genital/vaginal pain;
  • Genital tenderness;
  • Swollen glands in the groin;
  • Unusual vaginal discharge.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. There are many different types of HPV (over 100 different kinds of viruses) and more than 30 are sexually transmitted – they can infect the genital areas.

Most people who become infected with HPV do not even know they have it. It is estimated that as much as 80% of the population is infected with a strain of HPV at some point in their life.

Depending on what type of HPV strain you are infected with, you may or may not experience any HPV symptoms. Those infected with what is known as “low risk” HPV will likely just have one HPV symptom: genital warts (blister or blisters on vagina). These can develop anywhere from a few weeks to a few months after exposure to the virus. Genital warts usually appear as a small bump or groups of bumps in the genital area. They can be small or large, raised or flat, or shaped like a cauliflower. Genital warts look like miniature cauliflower florets, which are usually flesh-colored, soft and moist. They can develop on the vulva, cervix and in or around the vagina. HPV in men who have a strain that causes genital warts may develop the warts on the scrotum or penis. Both sexes may also develop genital warts symptoms in or around the anus and occasionally on the thighs, buttocks or throat. However, it is possible to have an HPV infection without any genital warts symptoms.

Blisters on vagina – herpes

If left untreated, genital warts might go away, remain unchanged, or increase in size or number. They will not turn into cancer.

Important to know

An abnormal Pap test is often the first sign of a HPV infection. This is why it is important to start Pap tests by the time you are 21 years old. You should start earlier if you have special risks such as problems with your immune system or if you start sexual activities very early (13-15).

  1. Hi I have a few questions regarding hpv and genital herpes! I have now been noticing sores in my vagina (outer) passed 2 years- first time I noticed it was both sides of vagina and inner vagina ! I have googled and everything leads to this- but my bf at the time now fiancé has hsv 1- but hasn’t had but maybe total of 4 outbreaks- but we don’t kiss nothing cause I didn’t want to contract this- well shortly after being together I noticed these outbreaks! ( I’m guessing that’s what they are) well I would like to know some answers – I started to take valtrex when I had the sores and currently on day 3 and not seeing much relief- please help thanks

    • I would strongly recommend to visit your gynecologist.

  2. I wore an extremely tight thong on Friday now I have little tiny single blisters on my vagina. I just got tested last month evening
    Everything was good. And I’ve been with the same guy I’m just worried do i have herpes?

    • difficult to say without looking – could be just irritation with inflammation?

  3. I have one little lump on my inner labia towards the outside I also have one little white bump on the inside of my lip. I’m under a extremely amount of stress right now. I never itched, it does not hurt when I touch it, there is no blood or red near it. I can’t get in to see my OB for a few weeks. I had a full hysterectomy a few mths ago and my blood panel came back clean, almost I have HPV but they told me it was from chickenpox from when I was young. I’m very confused, what I have does not sound like any of these.

    • you need tests for mentioned infections

  4. Hi I have felt itchy in my vagina, I don’t know if that’s a sign
