Neosporin On Inner Libia
Neosporin: Neosporin is not harmful if used on the labia minora but has limited value. This is not a medication that Obgyns would prescribe for labial problems. The most important step is to determine what is wrong that makes you feel that you need Neosporin. If there is a bump or blister on the genitals then this should be evaluated by a doctor to determine the cause and treatment ...Read more

I cut the inner part of my labia while shaving and I have a scab. But it doesn't itch or hurt. I've been using neosporin, is there something better?
Abscess on inner thigh ±1 cm. Area around is red&tender. No pus yet. Causing discomfort when walking. What to do to get the pus out? Will neosporin help?
See MD: Neosporin will not help. You need to go to see your doctor to see what it is- lymphadenitis vs abscess vs other. Antibiotic should help. If there is a large abscess and if antibiotic does not help-then incision and drainage may be needed- in addition to antibiotic. But go to see your doctor first. ...Read more

Sounds like yeast: Yeast infection can lead to itching, sometimes burning with urination, and white thick discharge but typically is not foul-smelling. For some women, it works to try over the counter anti-yeast medicine and go to a health provider for examination if it doesn't get better in a few days. ...Read more

Not a problem: The labia come in many shapes, sizes and colorations. Having long labia minora is a normal variation and will not affect your sensation, sexuality or sexual function.

Pus filled bump on inner labia minora. Not sexually active. Accidentally popped the bump. Any over the counter medicine to be used?
Having a boil on inner labia. Red. 1cm. Started hurting on urination. Bartholin's cyst, endometriosis in labia minora, or anything else? What is cause?
See answer: An infected Bartholin's or sebaceous cyst would be most likely and occur in inner part of labia minora. An infected skene's duct cyst occurs adjacent to opening of urethra. Treatment: moist heat and antibiotics may cure an infected gland/small abscess. However, as a rule, the larger the abscess, the less chance that antibiotics alone will be effective and incision/drainage by md will be required. ...Read more

My gyn isn't available till next week. I'm pregnant, my labia minora was itchy, now it's dry. I just noticed a cut on each side of my inner labia. Highly doubt it's an std. What can I do to alleviate the discomfort? Any diagnosis? Thanks
Inner labia minora has painful red spots that bleed just a little. Used a dull razor last time I shaved. I don't believe I've been exposed to a std.
Ouch!: The "dull razor" didn't just shave the outer labia majora, but also nicked the inner labia minora which are very sensitive with nerve endings and vascular. A GYN MD needs to exam the area to make sure it doesn't get infected. By the way, there are depilatory creams made specifically for removing hair in this area to avoid future dull razors in "sharp" areas. ...Read more
I have a pea sized red bump with a yellow centre on my inner labia minora. Pimple or sebaceous cyst? It popped but the yellow centre came back.
Cyst?: A recurrent lesion like this, if in the same spot each time, suggests a cyst, e.g. a blocked sebaceous or mucus gland. (You seem to ve aware of this possibility, since you selected 3 different kinds of cyst among your topic tags.) Best to see a doctor; minor surgery (opening it to drain, perhaps cautery) probably would prevent future recurrences. ...Read more
