Can herpes cause small bumps to appear ALL over the outer lips of the vagina or is this something else? Had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago.
Maybe: With herpes, you may initially see a crop of small individual bumps that look like they have fluid in them, but they quickly spread and coalesce (group together). They also would go from itchy and irritating to painful in sensation. If you have even a small suspicion of herpes, then run - don't walk - to your medical provider or STD clinic for urgent evaluation and treatment. Hope that helps! ...Read more

They may itch, but usually there is tenderness over the skin even before the bumps appear and there is more pain or irritation than itching. The bumps open up and become tiny scabs as they heal. See a derm if it persists. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a rash all over my body apart from my face and stomach but it doesn't itchy it's just very red?
Probably viral rash: Rashes caused by allergies itch - so this one is not an allergy. Press on a spot for a second. The rash should fade away momentarily & then reappear. If it doesn't you have bruising in the skin - petechiae (see photo) - promptly see a doctor for that. If it does fade & you otherwise feel well give the rash a week or two. If it still doesn't fade away see your doctor then. ...Read more
