How long does it take a herpes blisters to rupture? Can a vaginal bump/pimple in my labia Minora have a shallow opening?
Probably not herpes: On moist surfaces like the labia minor, herpes lesions typically break within a few hours; often the blister itself is never seen, just an open sore. On dry surfaces, like the labia major, the blisters may remain intact for a few days. From this information it isn't possible to know whether your bump/pimples is herpes. But a single lesion in a hair-bearing area usually is just a pimple. ...Read more
Around my clitoral hood and labia minora there are these tiny bumps that look like pimples! Labia minora is more stretchy on the one side! Normal?
Can be normal: It's normal to have some irregularities and 'bumps' on your hood and labia minora. Sometimes we are born with them, could also be enlarged pores, could also be tiny condylomas. If you've ever had sex, then possible hpv related. Definitely normal to have one labia be more stretchy then the other, just like normal to have one breast bigger than the other. Hope that helps! ...Read more
I have a pea sized red bump on my labia minora with a tiny yellow centre. How do u know difference of herpes or a pimple?
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

Pimple in labia minora. Just red and hurts to touch. Hasn't grown much but its been smaller. I've had it for at least 1 week.
Evaluation: I think you should have this evaluated by a physician. It's possible that it isn't a pimple and is a vesicle or raised lesion associated with a sexually transmitted infection. It could be a simple cyst and not associated with STI, but you would definitely want it to be evaluated in case there is an infection and you need to be treated. Hope that helps! ...Read more
