Discuss with MD: You need to discuss this with your MD. You can get outbreaks from type 1 herpes. The treatment is the same. She may have made a decision not treat based on her clinical suspicion.

What are some of the causes of vaginal sores. I have one on the side of the vagina. Visited a nurse but didn't get any medication.

Vaginal sores: There are a number of possibilities: infection, inflammation, trauma, a growth. Please see a doctor, an ob/gyn if the lesion is within the vagina, either ob/gyn or dermatology if the lesion is vulvar. You need a diagnosis and proper treatment. Whatever the issue is, there are treatments for it.

I have been getting small vaginal sores that are not an std. What could they be?

I have been getting small vaginal sores that are not an std. What could they be?

Depends: If you're sure it's not an std (if you're still a virgin) then vulvar (outer skin) lesions are most likely to be due to shaving or infections of the hair follicles. Use a mild antibacterial soap and avoid shaving for a few months and see if they resolve. You can also try a hydro-cortisone cream twice daily. If they persist or recur, get to a good ob/gyn to help determine the cause.

Can u get vaginal sores from shaving pubic hair?

No.: You can get infection at the site of hair follicles, but you cannot get sores vaginally. You need to be seen by a doctor who can check your herpes viral titers.

Vaginal sores? I have a few sores on my vagina. They don't itch. It isn't painful the urinate and I haven't noticed any discharge. What could it be?

Sores,: Sores, or lesions, on the vagina can be caused by a variety of different conditions. They can be caused by an infectious process, or even by a skin condition. Any lesion or sore in the vaginal area should always be checked out, with consideration for having cultures taken for a diagnosis.

Inner vaginal sores. Yellow, raw skin. Looks like large ulcer with yellow discharge also. Extremely painful while urinating. Constant pain.

See answer: Genital ulcers are usually caused by sexually transmitted infections (stis/stds). These include herpes, syphilis, and chancroid. Genital ulcers may also be caused by inflammatory diseases, trauma, or a bad reaction to skin care products. Recommend md visit, pelvic exam, appropriate std screening and diagnostic testing as soon as possible so that appropriate and effective treatment can be given.

Vaginal sores?: Did the doctor see those vaginal sores and ell your what they were? If not, see the MD again be sure to have them evaluated and treated. In grown hair infections can produce soreness, but so does herpes.

What's a good home remedy for a vaginal cyst?

What's a good home remedy for a vaginal cyst?

None: Vaginal cysts are atypical and usually indicate a fluid filled sac that is under the skin which usually requires surgery to remove them. If the cyst is more on the outside of the vagina around the opening then soaking in a warm tub with epsom salts, aveeno (oatmeal) bath or other products can help them drain on their own.

Is there some home remedy that I can do to help my vaginal ph? I have this odd odor that comes and goes sometimes. I don't understand

Yes: Use organic apple cider vinegar 1part to 25 parts of water. There are 2 common causes for vaginal infection-yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. Vinegar will help Bactrial infection. If it does not clear in a few days try vaginal antifungal cream like monistat or clotrimazol and if not better within a few days see PCP or gynecologist

24f-unmarried - Due to intercourse vaginal part has been stretched and looks in bad shape. Is there any home remedy or exsersize to cure this?

Kegel exercises: It is natural for intercourse to stretch the vagina somewhat, but Kegel exercises can help maintain things better. This involves tightening the muscles of your bottom like you would if you are cutting off your urine stream. Do this multiple times over a one or two minute period multiple times during the day and you should in time notice an improvement.
