Question:

I have noticed that I have been getting bumps on my vagina. They come and go, they are painful when something rubs up against it and after a while it gets pusses and bleeds. Recently I have been shaving so I am not sure if that is what it is but it has been a while since I have shaved. I have been with the same person for 4 years so I am hoping it is not warts or herps?




 



Sometimes you can get nasty boils from shaving. I get them beside my vagina, kind of along the side of the underwear and the leg bends. They are very painful. Mine feel about the size of a pea to the size of a dime and feel like they are mostly under the skin but appear as red and sometimes a bit shiny. I know they can pop but mostly if you make them, I try to let mine go away without popping because it hurts A LOT!
It sounds like what you have, however only a doctor can tell you.

I recently found one of these myself. I have only been with one person and we both lost our virginity to one another. I was afraid it could be a cyst but the thing I have is not very hard. The first day it was small and it popped easily but it kept rubing up against the panties I was wearing and became sore and red. I tried to pop it the next day because it got bigger and was kind of clear/shiney. It only bleed though so I decided to leave it alone. It has been going done unless I touch it and I''ve been wearing bikini fit underwear instead of thongs and plain cotton no lace or anything to irritate it. What it is is a boil and I got it from shaving. I shave all the time and always get bumps and things and it's gross but I don't like having hair down there.

could be herpes a friend has thesame problem and its herpes. he could have cheated on you and he may not have symptoms but passed it to you. thats what happened to my friend. he never had symptoms and he was her first sex partner. or they say it can lay dormant in someone for a long time then pop up all of the sudden. but its not as likely. sorry to be negative but you can never really trust anyone

I got one of these and went to see my doctor and he told me that it was just a cyst and I have not had a re-occurance of the symptoms/

I don''t know if any one else has had this problem but my genital skin area is very sensitive and ever since the first time I shaved my genitals, I got some nasty shaving bumps. So I thought that switching to a hair removal lotion such as Nair, Marzena, etc. would help and it only made the bumps irritated and enlarged and filled with puss and when I busted one, it bleeds. They hurt, they itch sometimes and they just feel really irritated when I wear panties, especially when the hair is growing back. Now my whole genital area is black from all of those shaving bumps that I used to have. I still have some as we speak and they feel very irritated by my panty line. I don't think I will ever be able to wear a bathing suit again.

I get the same thing and I have not been sexually active. I really they are just ingrown hairs because I have been getting mine since I started shaving. I am going to see a doctor soon nonetheless...it is better to be safe than sorry.

sounds like exactly what I experienced. and almost always a day or so after i saved. i know for a fact its not an STD ... just pimples (if you will) on the vagina. I used a topical cream and warm soaks helped. AND I STOPPED shaving and never saw them again. But please make sure you check this out for yourself to be 100% sure.

I used to get nasty bumps that showed up after I shaved, but then I found a treatment that helps the bumps go away or not show up as much . It''s called BIKINI ZONE. I bought it at Walmart. It has helped a LOT!. After you shave you put the Bikini Zone on the spots where you usually get the bumps. It doesn't hurt, it doesn't leave a residue,and it doesn't smell. The price isn't bad either.

I had this same problem and it was just a boil. It felt really hard under my skin at first and I didn''t know what it was until my aunt told me she had the same thing and that it would eventually come to a head and pop and that it would have a bad odor and that taking hot baths and using boil ease would help.

That''s actually the answer I was looking for, i have them too, i got a few pimple-like bumps in one spot on the side and they look kind of white just like when you would pop a pimple and i recently shaved, i think it might be because of some ingrown hairs or something, let me know if u find something out.....

If it on your inner lips (labia minora) close to the vagina, and if you sqeezed it and puss came out, it is possible that it is bartholin cysts. Apparently squeezing it is a bad idea, makes them reoccur more frequently. They can be small, like a zit, or they can be fairly large, like a quarter sized lump. They can infect, or abscess, or be just a pain in the crotch. See a doctor for sure, tho, so you don''t infect it.

Hello dear don''t worry you have a case of ingrown hairs! when you are alone in the bathroom take a pair of tweezers and look where the bump is and you will see that there are little hairs inside of the bump or around it when you see it snatch it out it's a little painful but it beats having it there forever after that grab something like tissue and squeeze it and walah it done rub some peroxideor/alc on it my doctor taught me this

I recently had the same symptoms. I immediately went to a free clinic to get checked and the doctor said it was an infection from my razor. i had been using the same razor for a while. she said to always keep your razor dry, so dont leave it in the shower and dont use it after you know its been too long. i had the infection for about two weeks, but i strongly suggest going to see a doctor as soon as possible. my friend thought she had the same thing and it turned out to be warts.

hey I have the same thing and believe me it is just from shaving.. and the person who said they were a professor .. well you need to learn to spell and you need to also grow up ..anyway i get them a few days after i shave but like the other replier said that you can buy the bikini zone and it should help :-)

I had a vulvar biopsy for this same reason. It turned out that the bump was a sebaceous cyst that was caused by the inflammation of the hair folicle from shaving. My doctor advised that this would only become worse if I did not shop shaving. She suggested I go au natural, or wax, ouch!

have any of you heard of a disease called Hydradentitis supportiva if you have been getting this alot and even when you dont shave you still get these bumps along the increases of your legs and any clothing undies pants etc rubs up against it and make it get bigger redder and very sore ,,its not a std its not anything you have done wrong like by shaving it is a deformality of your sweat glands just thought I would add this as a possibility

I have the same problem I just posted the question. I have never had sex or oral sex or any sexual experience so it cant be an STD it happens after i shave and it hurts so bad... so now i know what it is and im so relieved... i cant stop shaving tho... so that bikini zone stuff works well? you apply it after you shave?

Shaving can irritate the skin.. Also removes top layers of skin making it easier for things to be transmitted and increases chances of ingrown hairs.


6/12/2003

i don''t have an answer for you, but I have the SAME things and i was wondering if you found out what it was?

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!!!

I HAVE THE SAME EXACT PROBLEM. I WENT TO THE DOCTOR AND THEY TESTED ME AND IT WASN''T HERPES. I DIDNT ASK FOR AN HPV TEST THOUGH. SOMETIMES WHEN I APPLY HEAT ( LIKE A STEAMING HOT WASH RAG) IT HELPS. IF YOU HAVE FOUND ANY INFO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE EMAIL ME. I TOO HAVE BEEN WITH THE SAME PERSON FOR 5 YEARS. THANKS

I have gotten lots of bumps on my vaginal area, not on the lips or inside, just around...I have noticed it since using Gillette Jasmine Relaxtion with Silk shaving gel. I wonder if the silk is causing the irritation to the vaginal area. Wondered if anyone else has had the same problem with this shaving gel?

I had the same problem. I''ver been with the same guy for 3 years and I just recently went to the doctors and had a regular pap. My doctor called me yesterday with the worst news of my life...she sd i had HVP...the only signs i saw were a little bump that went away in a few days and thought it was just a hair bump ...then she tells me this...NEVER would i had thought this could happen to me.

Me too, and I have never did anything that could make it a STD how do I make it go away for good!?!?!?

What you have is razor burn, try couchy cream by athena''s it works great. Herpes by the way are open puss sores that burn. It is the same virus that some get on their lips but on their genitilia. HPV is warts.. they are bumps that appear like califlour type textures. Oh, and by the way girls... STD are highly contagious! Never sit on a toilet seat.. Hepatitis and HIV can be transmitted through fecal and bodily fluids. HIV lives on a cerface for 7-10 days... Practice good hygene!

you know what... I have pimples too and usually its right before the hair starts regrowing like the first day after i shave nothing but likt the 2nd or 3rd day they come out just a few the next day more and then i start poping them i hate pimples but i use the cream from Ptoactive your suppose to fist use the soap then this concealer then the medicated cream for it but i just use the cream it helps... i doubt that you have some kind of STD because if u have it I have it but i have been getting this way since i started becoming sexually active but i mean its bad cuz i wont let a guy touch me in that area cuz he might think i have something but i noticed that guys get it too on their pubic area... i''ve seen it its little piples like u would normally get on your face and they go away but they do itch like crazy in the mean time and sometimes u have a bad oder from ur vagina but go to a free clinic and get it checked out :)

"Heck" (or should I say "Hick"?)

Maybe you should rubbing up against your uncles genitals?


4/23/2005

Hi. I have a similar problem. They seem to be blisters of some sort and once they are gone they leave a weird viscous circle of skin behind... like a scar. Mine occur right under my vaginal area on the highest part of my inner thigh. I''ve come to the conclusion that they are blisters from the rubbing of my pants or my panties on my skin that irratate delicate skin with Genital Warts vessels close to the surface. However, I get an crazy large "pop" of the puss followed by a discarge of blood as if I had cut my skin with scissors. However, after this "pop" it feels better, scabs over a little and goes away. You're not the only one.

I have bumps on my vagina after I shaved


3/8/2007

You have HERPES!!!


4/25/2006

I have to say that I''m no doctor, but the same thing happend to me. Even before I became sexually active, I would shave and I would get bumps that would come and go. I thought that it was shave bumps or abcese. You have to go to your doctor and ask these questions. They may do the PAP or other tests to see what you have, but you need to get checked and tell your partner to go get checked as well, cause if it is Warts or Herpes, someone has been out there and you both need to talk about your safety.


2/3/2004

well, I have the sme problem when i shave i get puss bumps and if i pop them they bleed. Sometimes i even get lumps. I thought I was the only one with that problem. Well, i''m ging to the clinic soon and you should too!

hey, shug... I had the same problem (always when i shave)... the first time this happened, i noticed that it was very painful when bumped... anyway, im a tattoo artist, and for people who cannot take the needle i put a topical pain reliever on their skin, so i put some on the area... you might not want to try this, but it was so painful and so potruding that i couldnt stand it any longer, so... after numbing it, i took a razor blade and made a small cut and squeezed the bump... bada bing bada boom... puss shot out and a hair was sticking out of it, so i took my tweezers and pulled out the hair... immediately the severe pain was gone... the cut took about 3 days to heal... from now on when you shave use a brand NEW razor, clean the area u r going to shave with alcohol first, shave and clean the area again with alcohol... and guess what? NO MORE INGROWN HAIRS!!!

Ive experianced the same things as well as all of you, at first I was very scared i had an std. So i went and got checked and everything was negative. So i came on here to read what everyone else has and im very relived. Mine are red shiny and sometimes hard, they hurt VERY bad. Im not to sure how long it takes before they finnaly pop. If anyone knows please help. When they do pop it leaves a bad odor and some b lood. After that it heals up and sometimes leaves a scare or a little fold of skin. Mine reacurred i think twice, does any one know of any thing to do to help them stay away? Thanks for the tip on taking a hot bath it helped alot<3

Just below that . & i NEVER felt any sickness as they say it''s part of the Sypmton''s . i NEVER seen any blistering , or anything white pop out . but there is just small looking scab''s around on the rash . But however , i do get wet alot , imean alot . Outta know where . & there''s milky white liqoud coming out , witch the say is being wet or whatever . But i tried takeing my underwear off for a night . Cos mine''s PRETTY tight on , g string like . But i took it off , & but something lose on . & it seem''s to gotten ALOT better .

I dnt necersarilly think its herpes.. Its probably just bcuz you shave!
If it would''''ve been herpes then you would''ve noticed this since the 1st time u were sexually active with ur partner so I say u shouldn''t worry
