Question:

I am a young sexually active female. Recently I have developed small bumps almost "pimple like" in my genital area. I got one before and it went away. they arent red or sore or open or pussing or anything and they are mostly external not near my inner area. Is this HPV or just bumps?




 



My first question to you is do you shave your vaginal area? If so, I can tell you that everytime I shave, I get some of these pimple like bumps. I was getting them from shaving before I was sexually active in anyway so I knew it couldn''t be an STD. I still asked my gyno about it and he said that that is very common in that area since it is so sensitive. It happens when the hair follicle gets stuck when it is growing back out, like an ingrown hair. They go away on their own but picking or scratching at them makes them mor sensitive, painful, and makes them linger around longer

hello...
no worries dear...i have the same thing and thought that it was somthing else so I asked my doc and she said that it was simply mullescum...not sure if that is spewlled right...lots of children get it also, but i have it just like you and i also have it just below my nose and a couple on my face...ask your doc about either a gel that you heard about or to see if they can burn them off...that is what they did for me...they may look bad for a few days after, but at least they will go away quicker....good luck!

I''m only a 14 year old girl and I have been sexually active. I had oral sex one time. This happened two years ago. Recently after using a feminine wash and shaving down there I have noticed 1 small and one big lump. One isn't even close to my opening and the other one is on my but cheek but close to my vaginal opening. The big one that I noticed bothered me and I started picking at it. Now it hurts when i walk and when I sit down. It also started to ooze and it looks like a pimple. I have no clue what to do or how to tell my mom.

this is not a question but its important!!! if your a guy and have a bump you need a biopsy!! its when they cut the bump and sent it to get results!! wemon can get a papsmear to know....and for wemon who dont have the virus they can now take 3 vacines to prevent exposure to the more severe forms of the virus but for men the onlything we have is biopsys cut it and test it!!!

This sounds a lot like molluscum contagiosum. I had this. They look like pimples and usually occur on the skin tissue, not mucus membranes. This is a self-limiting virus similar to chicken pox. Children get it frequently on different parts of their bodies, but it can also be transmitted sexually in sexually active people. The lesions can be removed, but usually go away on their own in a couple months and most likely don''t return.

Most people have these pimple-like symptoms. It is common amongst Afro-Caribbean and Black skin types. This is because of the coarse hair texture. The condition is known as folliculitis (see the following link: http://dermnetnz.org/acne/folliculitis.html
It is a perfectly normal condition and it''s caused by the bacteria, Staph Aureus, which is present in the nose, genitals and other body areas. It is also due to the presence of these bacteria that women are often advised when using Tampons to be cautious of having the Toxic Shock syndrome (TSS).
I'm afro-Caribbean and have the same problem. I discovered that applying the ointment 'Fucidin' really helps to reduce the pimple-like symptoms. My doctor prescribed this for me, and advised me it's really nothing to worry about. I must say that I had this condition for years, before actually having the courage to tell my doctor about it. And since using fucidin, I've not really had to worry about it. I apply the ointment liberally a few days per month, this helps to eradicate or perhaps reduce the Staph Aureus.
My advice to all who have this, is not to worry, you're perfectly normal and healthy.
Sometimes issues concerning our genitals bother us so much. The reason is because it's a very private affair and not very many people talk about it. If more people spoke more openly about worries about their genitals, we would find that most of these conditions are common, and more importantly, VERY NORMAL.
Another advice to help improve this forum, and for useful statistics, is for people to state their origin. You can do so and still remain anonymous.

Be sure to go to a gyn! I was diagnosed with genital warts by a general practioner and after 3 weeks of using Aldara which caused itching and constant burning, I decided to go to a gyn. The gyn told em that I do NOT have genital warts...it''s just the way my genital anatomy looks..

Over the past few months Ive noticed a small hard lump on the area of skin just behind my vaginal entrance (between there and anus)It isnt painful at all or itchy but just annoying and I''m always picking at it.
I hadn't thought anything of until recently, my boyfriend and I decided to .. in a lake (a ridiculous idea now, I know!) but since then I've had an infection (thrush or what would normally appear to be a yeast infection).
When checking inside and feeling around my cervix I have noticed two tiny little bumps, and now I am very worried.
Does this sound like vaginal warts? or could it be something else?
I'm hoping it may be related to a normal infection. I check my cervix regularly and two weeks ago there was nothing there!
Please help!

To the person that posted this on 6/22/06: "Most likely, it''s not HPV. HPV is usually detected during a pap smear, when they see abnormal changes in your cells. This isn't a definate sign of HPV though, and not all types of HPV cause bumps or genital herpes." Do you mean genital warts? HPV does NOT cause herpes. That is a seperate virus > HSV. :)

The best way to answer this question is by seeing your doctor. It is very important that you see a GP, gynocologyst, or dermatologist any time there is a change in the genital area.

cant work if i have warts cos can you get something similar?

Dont ever rely on your GP general practitioner, if there really only 20 million cases than thats less than 10% of the population and they probably studied HPV for 5 minutes in med school.

Your OB/GYN would have a much better background for this, but doesnt sound like HPV.

No one can tell you what is going on except a doctor. Why would you want to risk your young life to the possibility of disease? The mother of 2 is right that HPV causes cancer of the cervix, in fact it can cause cancer of the mouth too and of the throat. Its disgusting that you young people ar NOT BEING TOD THE TRUTH. Condoms do not stop the transmission of HPV, HPV is transmitted wherever infected skin touches other skin and MOST of the time the infected person has NO signs of the disease. I am a nurse. Most nurses do not know this because the medical profession doesn''t tell anyone, they don't tell you in school either. They don't want to tellthe kids anything negative about condoms. Stop now!

I JUST WANT TO SAY TO ANYONE WHO READ THE FOLLOWING TO PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CONDITION IS NOT HPV. SO ANYONE HAVING THESE SYMPTOMS SHOULD BE REST ASSURED THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE HPV. I WOULD STILL ADVICE THOUGH, FOR YOU TO CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS UP WITH A DOCTOR.

I am also a young female who last had sex 5 weeks ago.
I dry shaved, and about 2 days later I got these bumps that sort-of hurt and were reddish, and i thought they were ingrown hairs.. so i picked at them a lot and now they are open and cut.
I also have thrush symptoms in my mouth. My inner upper lip is a tiny bit swollen and tender, and my tastebuds are really red.
but i was away at a summer camp and hadnt brushed my teeth and ate spicy foods.
could this all be coincidental, or am i having some sort of outbreak!? please help!

I have had little bumps before, but they were red and they show up where I shave. If ever I get them it is only one at a time and it comes from my shaving. So don''t be worried that they are an STD, because sometimes the skin is just irritated. But still check with your doctor, looking to the internet for diagnosis isn't safe.

There is also an infection that is called mulescum,(excuse my spelling, but that is how it sounds). This is not considered an STD, but still needs to be treated by a proper physician. Also when they treat this, they usually do a herpes test on it.

There are some typos that I would like to clear up. Here is the revised version:

You all need to remember that there is NO TEST FOR HPV! Don''t believe the commercials. You have to have a breakout to be diagnosed positive.

You can be exposed to it from a person without a breakout and you WILL still get HPV. It is very likely that you will not develop a breakout until you expose HPV to your next partner. If you wait enough time between partners, you may never get a breakout and so will never come up positive for HPV.

The problem with HPV is that it lives deep in your cells where the virus can't be found and so antibodies will never be developed because your body canít find the problem.

There is a cure for HPV. It is a painful process I am afraid. Here it is:

The body needs to be shown exactly where the virus is. In order to do that, you must weaken the virus and destroy its habitat so that the body can see it, develop an anti-body, and unlock the key to HPV. Once the antibody is created, you will no longer be affected by HPV. Your body will destroy it on contact. You will never have another HPV breakout or any problems resulting from HPV. Please be careful, there are other STDís that are bad too.

Men and women can use this cure if they have a wart on their body. Men can use it on an existing HPV breakout. Woman CANNOT use this procedure on an HPV breakout. Women and men who want to use this cure and do not have an existing breakout must infect themselves with a similar virus that goes away and does not come back. The best and easiest one to get is Mullescum Contagiosum. By rubbing old quarters that have been in circulation for years and years (1970ís are best) on your pubic hair area (women: not too low, but definitely in the thicket of the hair) with Eucerin Original lotion for 2 hours and letting it sit. You will develop a breakout within a week. Here are the procedures after getting a breakout:

1) Go get it frozen off with liquid nitrogen at either your doctors office (recommended) or by using a product like Dr Schollís Freeze Away.

The problem with using a product like this at home is that you may not get every little bump that needs to be frozen off. You need to make sure every one is frozen. After that is done, make a map of where these spots are on a piece of paper so that you will not lose track of where they are. This is probably the single most important part of this procedure.

2) Wait 2 days after freezing.

By waiting two days, it allows the virus to come back a little. It is almost destroyed, and will probably be destroyed, but after two days it is not dead, but in a weakened state.

3) Begin the second phase of treatment. This next section is the morning treatment. You will need the following: Anti-bacterial Soap, A sewing needle, a set of tweezers, Compound-W wart remover or any product with 17% Salicylic Acid, Aqueous Base Acne Treatment Gel with Benzoyl Peroxide 10% (Kaiser has the stuff I used, you can buy it at one of their pharmacies), Q-tips or swabs, paper towels, a 10 minute timer, a fan to blow cold air, and 14 apples or oranges or both.

A) Wash the area with anti-bacteria soap like Irish Spring. Do not use perfume soaps or soaps with lotion in them.

B) With a sterile sewing pin (poke the pin into the soap and rinse to clean the pin), poke a hole into the center of the first frozen area. Push on it as if to pop it like a pimple twice. You must penetrate the skin with the pin. Rinse the area, poke the pin into the soap to clean the pin, rinse the pin and poke the next frozen area, push on it twice as if to pop it like a pimple and rinse. Use your map and do all of them that the doctor froze.

C) Turn the water off, dry off with a towel, but use paper towels on the frozen off area to dry. Get out the Compound-W (or equivalent with 17% Salicylic Acid) and the Q-tips and place a small amount over the top of the frozen off area. Use a separate swab for each of the frozen<

whatever you do don''t touch them no matter how curious you are.You can spread the infection if its hpv.You need to be tested 4 it.Do not except a negitive diagnoses unless your examined several times over time.I was undiagnosed for over a year because the bumps would go away I was told it may be because of vaginal dryness.That's b/s if you have bumps something is REALLY WRONG.I had the same syntoms.Just because they are only on the outside doesn't mean they won't spread so don't touch.Find out what type you have.Some go away and others lead to cervical cancer. Condoms don't always protect agianst HPV even if properly used. They have no data that suggest condoms can protect agianst HPV.

It''s unlikely that warts would disappear and come back like that. The skin there is very sensitive, and can get bumpy just from irritation. It doesn't sound like warts, but see the doc. S/he will probably tell you the same thing. If it is, your life/love life is not over. Take a deep breath. :-)

Most likely, it''s not HPV. HPV is usually detected during a pap smear, when they see abnormal changes in your cells. This isn't a definate sign of HPV though, and not all types of HPV cause bumps or genital herpes.

If you shave your genital region, it's probably a Sebaceous cyst. Look it up it's nothing to be afraid of. It's kind of like an ingrown hair, and as long as you leave it alone, it will go away by itself. Just don't pick at it.

okay. so I have had the same sympthoms and i was freaking out. im not sexually active so i thought it was weird. i read in a health magazine that if you have moisture down there you can actually form pimples so you can wash with face wash and it can help to clear them up. so i have been doing that and it really has helped!
remember friction can cause irratation.
so if you are athletic ..that could explain it.
but still try that and if it doesnt help .. deff go see your doctor.
it may be embarrasing but after you leave you will feel so much better!
plus im sure they have seen worse!
God bless!

OK LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LISTEN UP! I am a 34 year old married woman mother of 2. One time only have I ever had sex or any sexual contact that''s with my husband. I have HPV. PLEASE dont take HPV lightly. I have developed cervical dysplacia due to the HPV and if untreated can become cancer. It can go from cervical dysplacia to cancer in as little as one year. I didn't know I had HPV until a few months ago. My husband has no symptoms of any kind, he was the carrier.


Ladies, please get yourselves checked. You may not get warts you may get cancer in your uterus! MEn, you may not get warts, but you can get penile cancer. I thought I had a very stubborn yeast infection, those were the symptoms I was having. No bumps, no oozing matter from any sore, just thought I had a yeast infection.

You must inform your partner before any type of sexual contact of your HPV diagnosis if you know you are a carrier. GIVE THEM THAT OPTION. If not treated early enough, cancer can cause Genital Warts!!

Condoms may not be enough protection against HPV. If you come in contact with ANY vaginal fluid from an infected HPV individual, you will be infected.
It's not just getting warts removed and moving on to the next person in your life. Educate yourself on HPV, you may die or cause someone else to die from it.

I was diagnosed w/ HPV in college but am very healthy and had not any warts,etc. I did have mild dysplasia that was treated with cyrotheraphy 2 years back. You just have to see your GYN every 6 months if you are in fact diagnosed with HPV.
Now back to the bumps, I usually get one or two random "bumps" that are almost like pimples b/c I shave. i have been sahving for over 12 years. Skin is sensitive. Before you shave use a mild and conditioning hair shaving gel/cream. AFER shaving, moisturize. ALSO, you can get these bumps along the panty/thong line b/c it rubs against your skin thus irritating it. When this happens, af5er I shower, I spray bactine on a piece of tissue/cotton swab/cotton ball and pretty much clean that area. I do this about 2 times a day and the bumps go away. So the bottom line is, you can have HPV and not know it until your GYN sees you and conducts your yearly PAP. Not I get 2 PAPS a year to make sure the cells on the surface of the cervix are bahaving. After the cyrotherapy, I have not had an issue and ALL my PAPS are normal.

I am 19 in my first year at college. I had unprotected sex before winter break and then over winter break i got a pap, because i thought that maybe i had an STD, the pap results came back normal, however i still have these red little bumps on the external vagina. they do not itch or hurt, but they did start out as flesh colored. i asked my school nurse and she said that it looked like molluscum, but then when i went to my family doctor to get a pap she said they just looked like small pustuales. i am still very nervous and self conscious about these bumps even though my pap results returned normal? i also have donated Genital Warts a number of times, red cross scans the blood and sends you a letter if there is something abnormal, currently i have a "frequent donor card" what do i do, i dont want to spread anything to anyone but if i dont have anything to spread i should be fine, but if i dont have anything to spread what are these bumps?

About 8 months ago a couple of little pinkish bumps started to shoe up between my legs. Just a couple at first, but as a few months went by I got more. They looked like pimples, but didn''t hurt at all, just made me really uneasy. I went to a doctor and was diagnosed with mullescum. He put me on aldara, and it has been almost 3 months, and I have 1 bump left. I had waited a little too long and that is why it has taken so long, so get in ASAP and check to see what it is. All the aldara cream does is irritate your skin so that your immune system recognizes the mullescum and cleans the area itself. I wish now that I had gone in and checked earlier - so do it.

I am dealing with the same issue... I found one small bump that went away on its own in no time, then another a few months later that went away in a few days...i then had to go to my GP for my regular pap...a few days later she called me with the worst news...i had HPV. I now have to see an OBGYN... and i suggest you do the same.

Well for a very long time about 4 or more years ago I began seeing small "pimple like" bumps on one side of lip area of my vagina. weeks later there was more on that one side, months passed and the same happed to the other side. The dont hurt at all but there just so many little bumps and dont like how it looks. As of now I am married, my husband met me like this but I dont know if it bad or what. I did go to the Doc I did tell her anything about the bumps but she check me down there and did not say anything bad, I dont know if she noticed. I learne to live with these bumps but dont know if I should continue?????????????????????

i know exactly what this is. this IS from shaving. I get the EXACT same thing and it is very painful, even when you just put your fingertip on it, it feels like the worst pain ever. it almost makes me cry sometimes, the pain is so bad. but its nothing to worry about, it''s just from shaving. if you look closely at it you might notice a thin hair stuck under your skin most likely going in a straight line. i usually pick at it although i heard you shouldnt =/ anyway, if it doesn't look like that, after a few days it should look exactly like a pimple and there will be an ingrown hair inside which is the cause of it being so painful. STOP WORRYING. you're okay.

It could possibly HPV, but you should go to a gyn. Myself, I had small painless white pimples that went away, then later I got some back that turned into bigger warts. Genital warts can go away on their own, but they can come back too.

I have similiar symptons and have had them for a while now, I thought it was just thrush, because my vaginal area was extremely itchy, but then I had a look and found the white pimple like spots on the outside, and when I itched them, they became very sore and sometimes they would bleed. I have gone to see my doctor and she informed me that they are warts and I am waiting on pap smear results and getting Genital Warts tests to check for STD. My Doctor told me that there are over 70 different viruses that come in the form of warts, including cervical Cancer. I should have got this checked out when I first started becoming itchy.. I suggest you get it checked out too. I am very scared right now.

Hey, yah I have the same thing and went to the gyno and he said that they were normal and that they will go away and they havent, and i dont know what to do! i am freaking out! what can i do to make them go away also? Like how can they be nothing? they arent painful and just look gross. I shave but my friend does not and she gets them too!

I would definitely go see your doctor. I had the same thing and I was diagnosed with cervical dysplacia, which is pre-cancerous cells in your cervix. I went to the doctor right away when I found these bumps. Don''t wait because it can turn into cancer. The bumps went away on there own but the pre-cancerous cells had to be frozen. I just went back, and she said that I healed well and everything will be fine. It's scary and you might be scared of getting bad news but the sooner you catch it the easier it is to treat. And its not necesarily sexually transmitted it can be hereditary. My mom had after she had me, and it hasnt been back since, and I am 21 years old. It is very common in sexually active women our age. Go get checked out, be strong and you will get through it.

also, HPV is a virus, there is no cure
your body can suppress the virus, but it can never get rid of it

Just to let you know, you can use hair conditioner, lotion, or Johnsons calming baby wash to shave with. I use the calming baby wash, and I rarely break out, and it gives you a closer shave. It also takes a little longer for the hair to grow back. I also have HPV. I was just recently diagnosed with it. I had bumps, and I thought it was just heat rash or something because I don''t wear panties. My ex husband called me and told me that the girl he was cheating on me with had HPV and that I should probably get tested. Come to find out I have HPV and abnormal cervical cells. I have to get a colposcopy in about a week. I went to the doc to get the warts froze, and it worked at first. It seems like when the warts get frozen, they go away, but more come back in their place. Any tips for me?.....Anyone know how to stop them from itching?

JUST TO MAKE THIS SHORT AS POSSIBLE TRY DERM LECTURES AGAIN. GOOGLE IT! THERE ARE 4 DIFFERENT TYPES 1) CAULIFLOWER ACUMINATUM TYPES USUALLY FOUND IN FLESHY SKIN OF LABIA OR MEATAL OF MAN''S PENIS THESE ARE POINTED ONES. THEY ARE LOW RISK HPV USUALLY BUT CAN GET PRETTY BIG. 2) PAPULAR - DOME SHAPED, SMOOTH ON TOP, NO ROUGH OR FINGER LIKE PROTRUSION, SKIN COLORED, SMALL USUALLY. FOUND ON FULLY KERATINIZED SKIN LIKE WHERE HAIR IS IN PUBLIC AREAS INCLUDING LABIA MAJORA OR PENIS SHAFT OF MEN BUT CAN BE ON SCROTUM OR GROIN TOO AREA. LOOK LIKE SMALL SKIN COLORED MOLES OR DARKER MOLES. BARELY LOOK LIKE ANYTHING. ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH RISK HPV LIKE 16 BUT ARE CONSIDERED MORE RARE, BUT I THINK THESE GET BY DOCTORS ALL THE TIME AS SOAP BUMPS OR A "NORMAL CHANGE" OR THEY SAY IT'S A CHANGE DUE TO TRAUMA LIKE SHAVING CUT ETC. 3) FLAT USUALLY ON CERVICS AND NOT VISIBLE TO NAKE EYE CAUSE THEY ARE SUB CLINICAL DUH, BUT CAN ALSO BE ON EITHER KERATINIZED SKIN LIKE PUBIC AREA OR NON KERATINZED SKIN LIKE INSIDE ON LABIA. DIFFICULT TO DETECT BY DOCTORS UNLESS THEY ACETOWHITEN FOR WHAT THAT IS WORTH AND IT'S ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH RISK TYPES OF HPV BUT CAN BE LOW 4) KERATOTIC WARTS WHICH ARE HAVE A THINK HORNY TYPE LAYER LOW RISK ASSOCIATED USUALLY.

GW DO NOT POP BUT THEY WILL BLEED IF PICKED DOWN!

PAPS MAY NOT MEAN STD FREE BECAUSE EXERNAL GW DO NOT SHOW UP IN PAP TEST ONLY CERVICAL CHANGES! AND CONDOMS DO NOT STOP HPV CAUSE IT IS A SKIN DISORDER THAT LIVES IN THE SKIN! IT DOES NOT LIVE IN SEMEN OR Genital Warts. NO BLOOD TEST FOR HPV BECAUSE OF THIS! SO DUH!! ON A BRIGHTER SIDE CONDOMS DO STOP ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE BUT HERPES ESPECIALLY HIV! =) AND LAST THING NONOXYNOL 9 WAS JUST FOUND TO AID IN THE TRANSMISSION OF HPV CAUSE IT CAUSES BREAKS IN THE SKIN SO JUST USE CONDOM START TO FINISH WITHOUT THIS STUFF I GUESS. SEE CDC WEBSITE THEY JUST CHANGED THEIR OLD POSITION OF NONOXYNOL 9 IS GOOD LAST WEEK.

Herpes has distinct flu like symptoms that cannot be ignored, so that would be agood indication to watch for.

I was just told that I have it too and yes it probably is because my symptoms are the same as yours....so go to the doctor...

Please go to the doctor and get it examined or a culture done to figure out what it is. You will not have it answered here for sure, as there are too many virus'' out there that have similar symptoms and such. Looking at pictures online and comparing them will not help you diagnose anything, it will just increase your anxiety or cause you to let something dangerous grow & grow until it's too late

I think the following should help people who want to know if they have HVP or GENITAL WARTS or not.

The ANSWER: THE ONLY SURE WAY TO TELL IS TO GET TESTED! (Do NOT be afraid of going to the doctor.)

Many people have posted questions about little white bumps, wanting to know if they are infected with HPV.

In many cases this is NOT HPV or HERPES or GENITAL WARTS.

There are two naturally ocurring skin conditions that affect between 50%-90% of the population.

1) FIND OUT WHAT YOU HAVE

CLICK ON THIS WEBSITE TO SEE WHICH OF THE TWO NON VIRAL, NATURAL SKIN CONDITIONS YOU HAVE:
http://www.studenthealth.co.uk/advice/advice.asp?adviceID=153

It is most likely one of the two conditions: PPP (PENILE PENILE PAPULES) or FS (FORDYCE''''S SPOTS).

They are both NATURAL, COMMON, NON-TRANSMITTABLE, AND ARE NOT GENITAL WARTS, NOT HPV and NOT HERPES.


2) LEARN ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE


PENILE PENILE PAPULES

Some conditions (a ring of tiny white bumps near the head of the penis) are called PENILE PENILE PAPULES.

To see what this condition is visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hirsuties_papillaris_genitalis
(there is a picture there for you to compare with your condition)

To read up on PPP go to: http://pearlypenilepapules.net/ or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hirsuties_papillaris_genitalis



FORDYCE''S SPOTS

Some conditions (small skin colored spots or raised bumps that appear on the shaft of the penis or labia) are called
FORDYCE''S SPOTS.

To see what this condition is visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fordyce%27s_spot
(there is a picture there for you to compare with your condition)

To read up on FS go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fordyce%27s_spot


3) GET HELP IF YOU NEED IT

Skin conditions are very common. There is nothing to be ashamed of. For other skin conditions, including STDs
talk to your family. They should be there to help you. If you can not talk to your family or seek help you
might want to try the following site:

http://www.sworn.org/stdhelp.html
http://www.chicagohelp.org/
http://stdhelp.org/

I hope this reply was helpful for the many dozens or hundreds of people that thought they had an STD when in reality
they only had a NATURAL SKIN CONDITION with nothing to worry about. INFO=KNOWLEDGE! Pass it on.
