Bumps: On vulvar region could have many causes, common ones include ingrown hairs, bartholin gland blockage or abscess. You should see your gynecologist for evaluation. In the meantime you can try warm compress to area and Ibuprofen for pain. Take care!

Can't say.: The color of vaginal blood is of no clinical significance. Brown blood is older blood being expelled from the uterus. Red blood can be fresher blood. Sore red, vulva could be related to yeast infection, friction, dryness. Don't know how infrequent your periods actually are. There isn't a way to say with the available information. Consider medical eval. Take care.

Yeast? STD? Herpes?: This could be an allergic or chemic reaction of some sort, or an infection, such as rather severe yeast; or perhaps genital herpes, if at risk for STDs. Pain in the lower abdomen also can go along with STDs, which can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, infection of the fallopian tubes). See a doctor ASAP.

Allergy: An allergy to semen is possible. If you are engaging in oral sex, that could explain the sore throat. Allergic reactions can cause fatigue. The vulvar rash would also be allergic. Please see your primary care provider.

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.

Inclusion cyst: What you are describing sounds like an inclusion cyst. They are very common and occur when skin cells get trapped below the surface of the skin. If it is now red and sore I suggest you see your doctor because it could be infected and you may need treatment with antibiotics or further drainage.

Probable abrasion.: It's probably an abrasion and should get better if you leave it alone for a couple of day. Keep it clean and dry (pat it dry after shower or bath). If does not get better in a couple of days or if it gets worse, you need to get checked.

The last two days l have been experiencing a pearl color vaginal discharge and have redness and dry patch on the bottom surface of the vulva.?

Yeast: This sounds classic for yeast infection. You could try an over the counter anti-fungal from the drugstore, and then if that doesn't work, see a doctor for a more thorough exam and testing. Or you can go straight to doctor. Pearl color discharge is normal.
