Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Ingrown hair: You ask a good question and any painful lump or bump on the vagina warrants examination, however this is more likely an infected hair follicle/ingrown hair/folliculitis given that herpes tends to look like a small, clear, fluid filled blister with red patches. hope that helps. Keep the area clean and dry.
