Vaginal blisters

Vaginal blisters can appear on the vagina entrance, the labia minora (inner lips), labia majora (outer lips), on clitoris and sometimes on pubic area. These lesions are just like the usual blisters that appear because of friction or burns except that these are caused by an infectious virus. Usually before the vaginal blisters appear, the woman can feel first signals – it called the prodrome stage. It can last for several hours up to a couple of days. Painful, burning and tingling sensations in the genital area where the blisters will appear characterize it.

Who can get vaginal blisters

Any person can get vaginal blisters. In many cases vaginal blisters are developed because of sexually transmitted diseases (very often during HPV). Sometimes vaginal blisters can be developed in women who are not sexually active. There are several main causes for vaginal blisters including infections, friction, ingrown hairs or clogged sweat glands.

Vaginal blisters diagnosis

Vaginal blisters can show up anywhere on the vulva, and most of the time they go unnoticed until you feel some sort of friction. Vaginal blisters usually don’t hurt but if you touch them directly, they will be at least a bit tender to the touch or could be painful. If you’ve got one on the inner labia, for example, you might not notice it at all until you experience a bit of pain when drying yourself after tinkling. In general vaginal blisters are not hurting if you’re not touching it.

Vaginal blisters

Vaginal blisters could be different depending on causes. The ordinary vaginal blisters (not sexually transmitted) pretty much resembles any other blister and may contain fluid or blood. They can have different forms (ovular or circular). Ordinary vaginal blisters may feel like a gel bubble when touched. They might appear as clear colored blisters, or they may be very red, possibly turning very dark in the center as the blood inside ages – but they shouldn’t have an obvious border (raised or otherwise) and they shouldn’t itch or burn or smell badly. They typically would appear as a single blister, as opposed to a cluster like you’d expect to see with a Herpes outbreak.

Sexually transmitted infections develop different types of vaginal blisters. For example, HPV type of vaginal blisters (called genital warts) look like clusters of vaginal blisters. 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. If left untreated, genital warts might go away, remain unchanged, or increase in size or number. However, it is possible to have an HPV infection without any genital warts symptoms.

Vaginal blisters causes

Sexually transmitted infection/diseases (STDs).

The sexually transmitted infections are one of the leading causes of vaginal blisters, especially genital herpes (HPV). This disorder causes groupings of blisters to form on and around the vagina; they are usually very painful and often burst and crust over. Herpes blisters are usually painful and contain clear fluid on a red base. They rupture to form small slowly healing ulcers. Herpes is quite contagious while the blisters are present, so if you have any concern about this you should avoid sexual activity until you are seen by your doctor and until the blisters heal up. Herpes can be prevented by practicing safe sex, although it is not curable once it is contracted. Some medicines can be taken to reduce the amount of vaginal blisters and limit the possibility of transmission to a sexual partner.

Vaginal trauma

Other things that might be associated with vaginal blisters would include trauma from sexual intercourse. This could be avoided in the future by making sure to engage in adequate foreplay prior to intercourse to ensure proper vaginal lubrication.

Poor nutrition and/or Stress

Poor nutrition and tension can also cause vaginal blisters. When the body lacks the nutrients it needs or is creating large amounts of the hormones that go with stress, it can respond in strange ways; this may include developing blisters on the vagina. When a vaginal blister is caused by lack of nutrients or stress, it is usually just a single blister that is only painful when touched.

Wrong clothing

Certain types of underwear can also cause blisters on the vagina; tight jeans or pants especially when worn without undergarments can do the same. It is important to make sure that the crotch area is made of a breathable fabric such as cotton.

Bacterial or fungal infections can develop from wearing synthetic bathing suits or synthetic undergarments. The warm, moist environment that these items form can create a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus, which can cause vaginal blisters to form. Using pools or hot tubs that do not have the proper ratio of chemicals can also cause infections, and therefore vaginal blisters, to emerge.

Synthetic undergarments can trap moisture against the vagina, causing sores, or irritate the sensitive skin, also causing blisters. The same is true for tight pants. The friction caused by walking in tight pants can irritate the skin, resulting in the formation of blisters, much like the blisters that form on the back of the heels.

Some recreational activities.

Some activities, especially horseback riding and bike riding, can also cause vaginal blisters. Much like the problem with clothing, these hobbies can create a great deal of friction in the vaginal area. To prevent blisters from developing when doing these activities, wear breathable clothing (preferably cotton) and items that are thick enough to reduce some of the chafing.

By wearing breathable clothing and limiting the chances for infection, women can reduce their chances of developing vaginal blisters.

Other causes

Vaginal blisters could be developed due to infection or a cut after shaving and designing personal pubic hair style. Vaginal thrush may be delaying the healing process. Alternatively, it could be that you have diabetes which is again delaying the healing.

Vaginal blisters – Symptoms

Symptoms that occur with genital sores include:

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

Vaginal blisters – risk factors

Women in their early 20’s tend to be the most at risk of developing vaginal blisters.
You are at greater risk of getting vaginal blisters if:

  • You had sexual contact at an early age.
  • Either you or your sexual partners have had many different sexual partners at any time.
  • You or any of your sexual partners have had a history of sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Any of your sexual partners did not wear a condom.

Vaginal blisters – prevention

Vaginal blisters

  • Completely abstaining from sex or being in a mutually monogamous relationship with someone who has tested free of the virus are the best ways to avoid genital warts.
  • Using condoms consistently and properly every time you have sex may reduce your risk of contracting the virus but there is evidence to suggest that condoms are not very reliable at offering protection against the virus. Additionally, condoms cannot provide any protection if you come into direct contact with genital warts. If you or your partner are having an outbreak of genital warts, it is best to avoid all sexual contact until the warts have completely disappeared.
  • Vaccines can protect males and females against some of the most common types of HPV. These vaccines are given in three shots. It is important to get all three doses to get the best protection. The vaccines are most effective when given before a person’s first sexual contact, when he or she could be exposed to HPV.
  • Two vaccines (Cervarix and Gardasil) are available to protect females against the types of HPV that cause most cervical cancers. One of these vaccines (Gardasil) also protects against most genital warts. Both vaccines are recommended for 11 and 12 year-old girls, and for females 13 through 26 years of age, who did not get any or all of the shots when they were younger. These vaccines can also be given to girls as young as 9 years of age. It is recommended that females get the same vaccine brand for all three doses, whenever possible. The HPV vaccine is given in a series of 3 shots over 6 months. The first shot is given at a time of your choice. The second shot should be given two months after the first shot, and the third shot should be given about six months after the first one.

  1. Recently I have noticed that I have had some of these pains and so I checked it out… I have what appears to look like canker sores in the vulva area… They have like a whitish discharge acting live a top layer (probably dead skin) and yeah. I’m kind of afraid that it is like a really bad bacteria and I will get really hurt or sick from it. I’m not sure how I got it, because I haven’t ever had sexual intercourse. I do itch it once in a while and the other day I was washing it and it began to sting a little… I was a bit worried but didn’t care much after. Then I noticed it and got really freaked out… I’m 14 and really scared to tell me mom. I know I should, but I don’t know how to address it to her and I don’t know how she will react…. I don’t like doctor touching my private area and I don’t exactly like how it looks either cause it’s not the prettiest….. I’m really embarrass to be honest and really scared. Please help! Thank you!

    • First of all, there is nothing to be shamed or afraid; Secondly, most probably you have some vaginal infection which many virgin girls could have. I would strongly recommend to speak with mother but if you prefer find solution yourself, better read detailed explanations of different types of vaginal discharge in –

  2. I have blisters filled with fluid on left side of my clitoris lip and my vulva is really swollen and hurts really bad also hurts to use the bathroom..what can I do about the pain if I can’t be seen by a doctor until Monday..I am so miserable and irritated..

    • you can use pain killers or go to emergency medical service – I am sorry but you need urgently to visit your doctor

  3. I have a clear one that isn’t painful, itchy, or red hidden under my clitoris… I was terrified to see this but happy it does not sound like any sort of STD. I find it very painful to have sex as I have anxiety, and the last time I had sex with my husband it took me about 2 days to heal from the pain. It has been an issue for us for quite a while. From the sounds of this article it was likely caused by friction, and possibly stress and low nutrition. Thanks so much for posting it helped me a lot.

  4. i have one only in the pubic hair not right inside. it doesnt hurt etc. do i have any diseaese becaus eof this?

    • as I understand from your question, you just have small inflammation about one pubic hair – it called bump – check picture in –

      • it looked like the vaginal blister

  5. I have had these type of white bumps that come back when I get my period and then go away they don’t hurt unless I touch them and I’m afraid to go and get it checked out

    • better to check earlier = early diagnosis = early treatment = guarantee for full safe treatment (without any complications)

  6. I’m showing similar symptoms of herpes and I haven’t have sex in over 2 years, I just had a blood test done yesterday, I wonder how I could haven’t gotten this, all my other tests right before this were negative.

  7. I have had this sores around my genitals ever since i started my periods( was still a virgin).They appear mostly days before i go on my cycle and disappear after. They are painful to the touch, release puss when pressed and they just appear as inflammation (do not appear white). What could be the cause?

  8. Okay, so in 2013, I had my first pap and STD panel done; i was 19 years old. My pap was normal and my STD panel was all negative. I had gotten blisters/pimples on my vulva prior to being tested in 2013; I’ve been sexually active since 2008 and have had sex without a condom. I would get worried they were STD related but eventually rationalize it to be an infected hair; my rationalization was confirmed in 2013 when I had complete pap/STD testing done and everything was normal. I have had sex with one more person since 2013 and we have not used a condom. We had sex without a condom for the first time a year ago; the past month I’ve been getting small red bumps appear and within a week or two they go away. I get one at a time; once near my clitoris, once on my labia majora near my clitoris, and I currently have one on my labia minora near, kinda near my vaginal opening. They’re small, red and get more painful after a few days of their presence and then they disappear about a week later. I went to the gyn recently for cultures, I’m getting an IUD. I had a STD panel done, my appointment is about a week for the IUD insertion; so I’ll also know results then. These bumps have came and went within the last month, actually right after I had my cultures done in fact. So I haven’t had the chance to talk to my gyn about it. I’ve also added more high waist clothing to my wardrobe, it does tend to “rub” against me more. I’m also a college student, finals are here and I’m under a lot of stress. My one new sexual partner since 2013 hasn’t had many sexual encounters and always used a condom, except with me; although I know I can’t rule out the possibility of him giving me something I suppose… Any guidance or comments you have about this is appreciated, thank you.

    • difficult to guess without tests but check also anti-bumps cream –

      • I got my blood results back and everything was negative. So that rules out everything STD wise, besides HPV 6 or 11. I’m going to have my annual pap done hopefully when I have my check up for my IUD insertion; although I’m pretty sure that would only show high risk strains of HPV, not ones that cause genital warts. My question is, can genital warts have a white plus in them?

        • yes, it is possible

          • Okay….my appointment with my gyn is in 4 days, assuming the bump is still there, I’ll get cultures done. The pores on the bump are blocked with a white substance it appears. Does this sound like genital warts or a pimple/infection? I’ve been very stressed about this….

          • difficult to say without seeing – your doctor will tell you after 4 days

  9. I have some sores or blisters on my vagina, by the opening, one on both sides of my lips towards the middle and a couple on the outside of my lips. I’ve had the same partner for 3 years. I know he was unfaithful last year. When I went to the doctor they said herpes right away, he only looked at it for less than a minute, maybe two. Both my groin lymph nodes are swollen, I have very little pain on my vagina, just discomfort, it’s only painful if my urine touches a bump. The thing is I had a bartholin cyst for a full week that bursted on its own on 4/17. 2 days later I had sex with my partner and I felt a bit of a sting on the cyst, like it was still healing, the sex was pretty rough, we always use protection and we did it Sunday 4/19, Monday 4/20 , and Tuesday 4/21. All pretty rough. My cyst had bursted the previous Thursday 4/17. I felt mild discomfort were the cyst was for the next few days after sex including Saturday 4/25 when my period started. Sunday 4/26 I noticed my first bump. Tuesday 4/28 my lymph nodes were swollen again. They were also swollen the day my bartholin cyst bursted. I went to the doctor and he said herpes within a min. I went from having 2 blister that day to a few, maybe 7 or 8 by the end of the week 5/1. Today 5/3 they are smaller and I guess healing but they cause discomfort, I wouldn’t call is pain. The bartholin cyst was PAIN. I’ve had two partners in my life, I’m 25. I’m unsure if I’m in denial or if it can really be herpes?! I’m waiting on the test. My partner has gotten cold sores since I’ve know them. I’ve never been around him with a sore, I’ve never even seen them with one, we’ve been intimate for 3 1/2yrs very often, normally 1-3 times a week and we have not had oral play for the last 4 or 5 months. The doctor said it looks like I was exposed to the virus in the last 2/3 weeks and he is 90% sure it’s herpes by looking at it. Is it possible the cyst, the back to back rough sex after the cyst, and my period are all factors, that it is something different? I’m praying it’s the most intense yeast infection or bacterial infection I’ve ever had. Can a doctor really diagnose this virus just but looking at it for under a minute? I’m trying to be positive until the test gets back.

  10. I just noticed a place on my labia majora that itched/burned. It was just a single small area and I couldn’t figure out what it was. I started messing with it and it became very very painful and fluid (mostly blood, no white discharge) came out of it. It’s turned a purplish color, I guess from me squeezing it trying to get the fluid out. I’ve never had anything like this. Not regularly sexually active in the last 6 months. Had my last PAP about 3 years ago. Wondering if I need to see my gyno about this???

    • better to visit your gyno

  11. What are possible diagnosis for an open vaginal sore on the lip of your vagina? As in most likely what could it be

    • The most common causes of female genital sores are sexually transmitted infections, which can be spread through oral, vaginal, and anal sex. Examples include: genital herpes, genital warts, chancroid (a bacterial disease), molluscum contagiosum (viral skin infection with pearly nodules). Any female genital sores should be checked out by a doctor.

      • Is it possibl y curable if it’s not genital warts

  12. Hello Dr, I haven’t been sexually active in over a year but I’ve noticed that I have these boils and blisters a few day before my menstrual cycle and after, they are especially painful during ovulation. Please help. Thanks.

    • better to show to your gynecologist

  13. About 3 day ago I noticed a burning red spot aroun the top of the vaginal lips it’s become 3 small but very painful blisters I haven’t been sexual active since my daughter in march

    • better to show to your doctor

  14. What could I have if i just have a couple of blisters around my vulva after I had rough intercourse several times with a partner that I know is clear of sti’s? These blisters don’t hurt unless they come in contact with something and/or experience friction. I’ve (stupidly) been wearing tight shorts these days as well.

  15. I’ve noticed this blister like bump near the opening of my vagina..getting it about once a year for the past 6 yes maybe! One sexual partner for the last 8yrs! Very painful when I urinate if it touches the blister! Does this sound like genital herpes? Please help?

  16. I have one bump to me it looks like a full ready to pop pimple the thing is that it doesn’t hurt at all it’s very hard though.

  17. Hi, i just recently discoverd a very painful and very red blister on mu outter vaginal lip, ive never had them before all ive gotten out of it is blood and clear puss, im really afraid right now its been really hot where i live and i do shave could that be it?

  18. I had worn a tight underwear 4 days ago (May 14). That night, a single, itchy lump has formed on my labia majora. The next day, it looked like a pimple. Today (May 17) it looks like a blister. Is there any treatment for this? Is it possible that I could have sexually transmitted infection?

    • better to check at your gybecologist

  19. I have/had a blood blister on the left hand side of my vagina, in the crease of my leg. I popped it and cream/while liquid came out then blood mixed with clear liquid. Then this small (I don’t know how exactly to describe this) almost tentical shaped thing came out but is still connected to something… I know how weird this sounds.

    I’m 17 and have never had sex/oral sex so I’m honestly a bit scared

    • difficult to say without seeing it – sometimes it is happening around hair (just infection); just keep it clean and if it will not disappear during 2-4 weeks, visit your doctor.

  20. i have a question so almost 3 months ago me and my bf went to dr because he had a small bump on his penis area and the dr said it looked like herpes. then i got my blood tested and i was negative. then i had what seemed to be a herpes outbreak after sex so went back to dr and they did culture. both our cultures came back inconclusive which i was confused about. now each time we have sex if its like 3 days straight i develop pain and itching with a few sores down there. is it possible to have an outbreak each time after sex. i was googling vaginal sores and saw a few other things. not to get technical but he is a large guy and 9 months later its still painful but im more concerned about the sores.

    • you need better doctor with highly qualified laboratory – the main cause should be clarified

  21. for herpes is it small clusters of blisters because I have a few big one I went to the doctor and Im waiting for the result but Im really worried

    • most often there are small

  22. Hi
    I’m in my mid 20’s and have never had sexual intercourse, and since late last year I’ve been having these little pimples which are pus-filled inside my my vaginal lips, which come and go, and sometimes are very itchy. I tried not using bath soaps n bubble baths, but they still reoccur. And I’m too embarrassed to have a docter examine me.

  23. Hi,
    A while ago I had a cold sore looking blister on the inside lip of my vagina. It didn’t hurt and it healed with in a week. It was also only one. I do shave down there, and I’m a virgin, so im scared. Another weird thing to note is that not too long ago I also had a really long period that lasted around 2 weeks. Could that have anything to do with it? I had a doctors appointment last week and told him only about my period problem but said to contact him if my period lasted longer than a week. He also took me to get my blood testred for certain things. Could they find anything from the blister in the blood test? Im too embarrassed to ask anyone else about it. Could it be dangerous?

    • 1). menstrual disturbances have nothing to do with vaginal blister; vaginal tests can show some infections;
      2). if you are shaving it could be simple bump – check in –

  24. Hi, is it possible to have a STD if you only had protected sex? (even oral) I have this bumps in my hands, and today I found out one in the inner lip of my vagina. They don’t hurt. But I also found a couple of warts in my vagina opening. What can I do to get rid of all? I cannot go to a doctor right now, I’ll have to wait for two months at least. Is there something I could do to make it go away? Thanks.

    • The blisters in my hand sometimes dry up, peel and they don’t hurt or itch. I’ve got some of those in my ankles and toes too.

      • visit dermatologist

  25. I had rough sex 2 days ago with my husband of 19 years. Right after sex I experience burning and inflammation in my vagina. Next morning he wanted to have sex again and I experience pain when penetrating, and also burning/pain when urinating. I checked my self and I saw a blister in my labia minora that looks more like a canker sore. I talked to him and questioned him about my symptoms. He simply, said you might have a vaginal infection. I’m scared, I’ve been married for 19 years and had only one sexual partner. I don’t know what this is, and this is the first time that this happens. I have experienced vaginal infections before, but nothing like this.

    • if it will not disappear after 4-5 days, you better visit your gynecologist

  26. After 2 days of pretty intense sex I became sore and felt like a blister was forming (since I have had one from dryness before) but I can’t really see one. I know it’s not STDs or anything. I’m pretty sure its from insufficient lubrication. But at the bottom towards my anus in the inner part it looks swollen and I’ve never really looked at it before but it looks like a bump…but not blistery. If that makes any sense. Any clue on what it could be?

    • it can be considered as trauma – you need full relaxation, perfect hygiene (properly washing) and some cream can help

  27. I’ve never had sex before but I do masterbate. I recently found a pea sized blister on the inside of my labia minora. I read through the page on this site and I don’t believe it to be any bacterial diseas but it still troubles me. It doesn’t look like the picture on the site. It is hard with more skin covering it (like a blind pimple). My main question is how to treat it. It hurts when I wipe and is generally a little uncomfortable. Will it go away with time? Do I need to get some sort of prescription or is there over the counter medication?

  28. Every month during my period and sometimes before, I get these blood filled blisters usually near my clitoris, labia minor, or at times my thighs. The blisters are always dark in color. They are raised and they hurt if touched. The only way to get relief is to pop the blister. However, there are times that the “blister” is hard so a I have to use a pin to open it. Once opened brownish red fluid comes out. I have to repeat this process usually several times before the blister is completely gone. Once gone it stays gone unless I have a hormone change. I have told my doctor about it, but she says she would have to see it to be able to tell me what they are. Can you help?

    • your doctor is right – better to see and may be remove it with capsule

  29. I had very rough intercourse about a week ago and right after I felt burning and soreness around my vagina. Now a small bump has formed on my labia lip. The bump is not raised above the skin and when I squeeze it, clear discharge comes out. I can’t see my doctor until next month, due to insurance issues, but does this sound like herpes? Never had anything like it before

    • looks post-traumatic reaction – just keep clean, some anti-inflammation cream for night would be useful

  30. Hi there,

    Just wanted some advice. Had some pretty rough sex two nights ago which resulted in being quite sore yesterday. This morning when I woke up I was a bit sore when I wiped so I had a look with a mirror. Basically on one of the inner lips of my labia I have one sore, about 5mm across, kind of an oval shape. The sore can only be described as a lump that has a line through it, and the line is filled in by a yellow kind of colour that can only be seen properly when a bright light shines on it. Could it be a friction sore or something similar? It really only looks like when you cut your skin and the underside is a bit yellow. It is allow quite swollen but that may be just due to the intercourse. Should I use something like savlon or bactroban to clear it up? Thanks!

    • keep it clean, avoid hot water and bath, avoid sex for one week, any antiseptic cream could help healing

  31. Last month I noticed small white ulcers on the inside of lip of my vagina towards the bottom, they were sore and hurt when I wiped after using the toilet. Sex was impossible due to the pain so I saw a nurse and she was convinced it was herpes. She gave me some antiviral medication and it cleared up however I got my results and it was not herpes. I have only just began having sex the past week since the breakout as soreness remained after the sores disappeared, however today my vagina felt painful again and after checking I have the same sores. If this is a result of friction will this happen every time I have sex?

    • may be your partner have sexually transmitted infection?

  32. I’m really scared I might have an std because I’m not really sure what exactly I have. I’m 15, and sexually active with 3 guys in the past month. I know that my most recent partner has had a few partners before me but the other 2 haven’t. Anyways, I’ve gotten “pubic acne” before from shaving, and so I thought these most recent bumps were also the same, but when they would pop, instead of it being pus, it’s clear, almost like water. After that, it’d just be like scraped/raw skin. I need some help on what this might be or what I can do before going to a doctor.

  33. I have a group of small skin colored bumps around my clit and on it some are white it hurts the day after I have sex or touch myself and sometimes hurts to pee the bumps don’t hurt tho is this reaaally bad???

  34. About six days I go I started feeling pain in my vagina I thought it was only because my boyfriend was rubbing my clit too hard but after walking around in a mall all day and seeing blood in my underwear I decided to look down there. It’s infested with small black and red blisters and I recently shaved and I got a very high fever 2 days ago of 102°. I’m not sure if they are contributing factors. My boyfriend and I don’t have herpes so I’m really concerned about these annoying painful dots in and around my vaginal opening, I’m considering telling my mom but I’m sure she’ll think I have herpes and assume my boyfriend gave them to me. I’m really conserned and these hurt more and more by the minute along with my fever. It burns when I pee and it really hurts when I wipe myself. Sorry to be so straightforward about this but is it possibly because my boyfriend had something on his fingers when he fingered me? They hurt so bad please help!

    • better to visit your gynecologist as soon as possible

  35. I’m 20 and have this bump up near the top of my vagina, it is a red bump and was a darker purple at first but turned red and I’ve had it for weeks now, I sweat a lot down there and also have bumps on my buttocks and thighs and a cyst on my thigh. I’m wondering what the red bump on my vagina is seeming as it won’t go away.

  36. It has been already 3 months, 3 menstrual periods I am suffering from sores in labia minora (inside atthe entrance on both sides) right after my period. First sex after period causes these sores of 3-5 mm covered with white just like stomatitis in the mouth. I have quiet frequent genital herpes recurrences (spring and autumn), but this time I am sure that this is not herpes due to the absence of burning and itching sensation as well as transparent blisters. Before these sores appeared, I noticed a line of cabbage-like bumps like from pappiloma virus. However, these condilomma-like bumps are located a bit down closer to conjunction of inner lips inside. Is it possible that right after period, due to the dryness while penetrating first time I can acquire sores of 5 mm? Sores are painful after frictions when moving and urinating and do not burn or itch. I have been taking Estinette contraceptives for almost 5 months now. And why does it happen only after period?

    • it is vaginal infection which is becoming stronger after period because during period menstrual blood is the best environment to multiply

  37. i got bumps a little away from my vulva, its reddish and creamy, very painful to touch. close to my anus on the left part. it occured before on the labia majora and went away but its back now. is this HPV? and what is the treatment?

    • if it is painful, you better show to doctor

  38. Hello Doctor.

    I am 23 years old and I am a virgin. Well, for quite a few years now, I have had these reoccurring blisters/bumps underneath the hood of my lips and on the outer tips of my labia minora. They usually don’t bother me unless I rub them wrong and they go away within a few days to a week if I don’t touch them, the blisters drain on their own. They occur sporadically. I know the source cannot be an STD because I have never had sex before. Could the cause be because of friction from masturbating regurally, clothes, or allergies? I am also overweight, so could that be causing some of the problems? I know that being diabetic, which I haven’t been tested for, can cause an increase in yeast and bacterial infections. Thanks.

    • better to show to your doctor and make some tests

  39. A week ago i was shaving my pubic hair i noticed a cut or two but didnt think much of it until days later when my clitoris kept feeling a burn. I thought I might have cut it by accident while shaving but that soon it would heal. Days went by and noticed a few tiny sores around the outline of the pubic hair and one on the bottom of my clitoris. I wonder if the sores could be caused by the razor cuts? If so what would be best to heal them?

  40. I’m 15 and I seem to have two… I am sexually active, but neither me nor my partner have ever had and STI, as we were both virgins when we started having sexual intercourse. I’m actually kind if worried about it but I really don’t want to bring it up to my mom. It doesn’t hurt unless there is direct contact from anything, and it’s located right along the inside of the hole itself.

    • it should be checked and evaluated by doctor

  43. I have one vaginal blister. I had sex to only one partner anf my partner only had sex with me. It doesnt hurt actually. It is in my pubic hair. Is it a virus or is it becaysr im using improper underwear or poor hygiene?

  44. Hi I am 26, im sexually active but just with my husband for almost 4 yrs now…before that I had a drunken one night stand with a friend, a fling for 4-5 months and before that it was my first husband for 8 yrs and we were each others first…anyways two days ago I was shaving down there and I got a short sharp pain near the area by the clitoral hood and thought my razor slipped and cut it slightly and didn’t think anything of it…but just a yesterday I noticed a canker like sore on the side of my clitoral hood which at first looked like it had some white on the top but it was not fluid when I checked it out more like skin or thicker pus from a pimple and 3 others in the outer area by the clitoral hood… They are not real close together but the one on the clitoral hood is very painful when touched and had some pus like fluid pop out today whereas the other don’t hurt muchal and I haven’t seen the white on top just maybe slightly red…I’ve had some itching but not much…I’ve never experienced anything like this before and neither has my husband but he does have a genital wart near the base of the shaft towards the top side…I know that its possible to spread the herpes that cause cold sores and canker sores to the genitals and my husband and I have both had small canker sores in our mouths in the past…could that be it or is there anything else it could be 🙁 I’m super scared and emabarassed about it all but have made an appointment for 4 days from now…

  45. To specify we’re not sure if its a genital wart on him… Could maybe be a tumor of some sort…

  46. Today I noticed a small white/flesh coloured bump in the folds of my vagina, I only noticed as I blasted the water from the shower head in that direction so I could have a good thorough wash, but it caused me a very painful feeling. I checked it out immediately and found one pimple/blister looking bump.

    I’m not currently sexually active but I do spin classes at least once or twice a week- that’s the only explanation I have for it as there is a lot of friction during the class. Do you reckon that could be the cause? If so how do I get rid of it.

    I have booked in to see my doctor on Friday, just to be sure. I’m so worried as I’ve never had this before.
