Can a blister on the vaginal lip be caused by friction during sex or anything else besides genital herpes?

Can a blister on the vaginal lip be caused by friction during sex or anything else besides genital herpes?

Labial ulcer: The potential for other STD lesions is present but far less common. Friction during sex would suggest you are not sufficiently lubricated and you might recognize this because of the discomfort during sex which results from lack of lubrication. Cannot, however, diagnose this without seeing it. Hope this helps. Read more

How does a person get red bumps on their vaginal lips?

Vaginal sores: Several things may lead to vaginal lesions. At times an infected hair follicle may present like a little bump (folliculitis). However, other causes are a bit more worrisome. Herpes virus or genital warts (both stds) may also present as sores on the labia. It's always best to seek a doctor's opinion with a physical exam. At times, a culture or very small sample will need to be taken. Read more

I'm sorry that in your health system you do not have the access to a personal gynecologist, who cares enough about you to converse with you about your concerns. Dermatitis, lichen sclerosis, herpes, labial hypertrophy, allergic reaction, are all among the possible causes. Read more

I have what it looks like swollen hard inside pink bump in my vaginal lips and it's been bleeding I think it's so kind of cyst?

Could be: Certainly this could be a cyst, but there are other possibilities as well. Would be best to get seen and know for sure. You might require antibiotics or other medication to make it go away more quickly. See a physician experienced in gynecology whether an OB/ GYN or family physician. Might try applying moist heat to the draining/bleeding area to encourage continued draining until seen. Read more

I accidently cut the outerside of my vaginal lips while shaving the other night and it is now very irritating. It is sore and itchy.

No problem: Cuts like this usually heal well on their own. Good hygiene, a topical antibiotic, maybe a band aid and time will cure this. In the rare event you develop signs and symptoms of a progressive infection see your doc. Read more

U need a pelvic exam: You need a pelvic exam to check for vaginal infection. You discharge could be benign and normal but it won't hurt if you'll undergo testing for possible bacterial or fungal infection. Redness in the vaginal lips suggest inflammation and/or infection. You may need antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents. Take care! Read more
