Lumps and bumps: It is difficult to say without being able to examine you in person. You may simply have a mild case of "folliculitis" which is infection or inflammation of the hair follicles which usually resolves with proper hygiene and sometimes antibiotics.

Hard pea sized lump in the vaginal area just got it today and popped it and puss like stuff came out what could the bump be? It's still really hard.

Bartholin's cyst: The most likely cause is a Bartholin's cyst. The two Bartholin's glands lie next to the entrance to the vagina. They make a small amount of mucus-like fluid. A fluid-filled swelling (a cyst) sometimes develops from a blocked duct that drains the fluid from a Bartholin's gland. Sometimes a gland gets infected, which may then develop into a collection of pus (an abscess). ...Read more

I have a lump or bump like on my left vaginal lip what could it be?

Blocked gland: It sounds most like a blocked gland. Basically a pimple. There are a lot of glands in the vaginal area. Sweaty rubbing like with sex can cause dead skin and bacteria to get pushed into the pore and block the gland secretion. Showering after sex and applying a heating pad for 10 minutes 2-4 times daily can help. Get an evaluation if that doesn't help within 3 days. Sometimes drainage is needed. ...Read more

Whenever I'm douching, I feel like small bumps around my vaginal opening, what is it? Worried..

No douching: Douching is not recommended. It increases the risk of pelvic infections. Use just plain soap and water for cleaning the outside genitals. The vagina is self-cleaning. The bumps are likely normal parts of your anatomy. Either hymenal ring or glands. You can have an exam and ask the doctor to show you the normal anatomy so you have a better idea of what is normal. ...Read more

I have a bump on my vaginal area it has puss in it and I popped it a year ago is it possible to get something at cvs and what should I get!

Don't play doc!: Sometimes these can be hidradenitis suppurativa, or they can be infected bartholin's gland cysts. If you popped one a year ago ; it came back in the same place, you should see your ob/gyn. They might need to incise ; drain it, and pack it. They even put a little catheter in so that a permanent hole goes to the outside so it can drain on it's own. Should also culture for MRSA ; treated if need be. ...Read more
