I have two spots in my genital region near the vulva that are slightly red, not raised, and the only symptom is they itch like crazy! What is it?

I have two spots in my genital region near the vulva that are slightly red, not raised, and the only symptom is they itch like crazy! What is it?

Not certain.: When you say "near the vulva, do you mean "in the pubic area" or "on the outer labia"? Itchy lesions in the pubic area can be caused by insect bites (including flea bites and pubic lice,ugh!). Itching in the vaginal or labial area can be caused by an allergic reaction or a yeast infection. If they don't clear up in a day or so, or if you notice other symptoms, get medical care. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Needs to be seen: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Folliculitis is one possibility. Yeast is a possibility and over the counter fungal cream will fix it. Trauma from recent intercourse if possible. Herpes is an std which can cause this. Other possibilities too. Schedule an exam or a virtual visit ...Read more
