Don't play doc!: Sometimes these can be hidradenitis suppurativa, or they can be infected bartholin's gland cysts. If you popped one a year ago ; it came back in the same place, you should see your ob/gyn. They might need to incise ; drain it, and pack it. They even put a little catheter in so that a permanent hole goes to the outside so it can drain on it's own. Should also culture for MRSA ; treated if need be. ...Read more

I have a red bump in my vaginal area but I do not think it is an STI but I have the same symptoms as an STI, it burns. Any idea what it is or can be?

Get checked for STI: Not many STIs would start as a single red bump, but herpes might be a possibility. Aside from "it burns", you don't say what other STI-like symptoms you have (discharge? Odor? abdominal pain?). In any case, obviously STIs are on your mind, which implies you are sexually active and possibly at risk. Therefore, you should be examined and tested for STIs. Do it ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

Rash in the privates: A painful red rash in the private areas (perineum) could be any of a number of things. If it's very painful, it could be herpes. If you have a new partner, it would be good to talk about it. If you have had pimples in that area it could be a bacterial infection. Finally, it could be something like Candida, particularly if that area is overly moist. Good if a doc looks at it. It's not C.diff. ...Read more
