See your doctor for eval. ...Read more
I have yeast infection (I think) and a fleshy bump, skin colored, kind of like a ski tag, on the outer labia. Could it be caused by the infection?
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.

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
