Pimple like, bump and itchy on my labia minora. What can cause it?

Likely a cyst: It is possible that you have a small sebaceous cyst. These usually are asymptomatic unless they become infected or become really large. Also bartholin's cyst can occur near the entrance of the vagina. Cysts usually occur from blocked ducts causing secretions to build up. Best thing to do is to see your doctor if it does not improve or resolve in 2 weeks. ...Read more

I have a bump on my labia minora, which was redish, purplish. I popped it thinking it was a pimple. It bled a lot. Could it be herpes?

Not Likely!: What you are describing is not characteristic of genital heres. Genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease, is caused by the herpes simplex virus type 2 usually but can be transmitted when an infected mouth infects the genitalia of another. It causes a painful rash that may form blisters which causes a yellow fluid filled bumps that when bursts can form ulcers that crust over seldom bleed. ...Read more

How long does it take a herpes blisters to rupture? Can a vaginal bump/pimple in my labia Minora have a shallow opening?

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?

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 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

Hi docs I was wondering can I get a pimple on the vagina area near the opening but In between the labia minora and majora also it hurts when wiping?

Bartholin's cyst: A Bartholin’s gland cyst is a small sac of fluid that forms when the opening of a Bartholin’s gland is blocked. All women have 2 Bartholin’s glands just below the opening of the vagina. Most women notice a lump in the vulva, but may be asymptomatic. Other times the main symptoms are pain or discomfort when a woman walks, sits, or has sex. The cyst can get infected and form an abscess. ...Read more

Pimple like bump on my labia majora and it is white at the top. It's not painful unless I touch it then its kind of a light pressure pain. I'm a virgin?

Milia or cyst.: Tiny cysts called milia can actually occur commonly on the vulva in females or on the scrotum in males. They are typically painless so it is slightly concerning that you are experiencing pain. This has no bearing on the fact that you are a virgin as they are not sexually transmitted. Seek a gynecologist or dermatologist to shave or extract the lesion for you. ...Read more
