I'm a 22-year-old female with two children . I have a yeast infection. Can yeast infections cause bumps?
Thank you. I've had BV &a yeast infection twice that I know of at the same time. Could that cause the cluster of bumps as well?

If brief and initially blister-like and then sores, herpes is more likely. See a doctor and get it checked out. Good luck! ...Read more

I suspect that I may have a yeast infection I have small white bumps around my vaginal opening that burn and itch. Could this be what I suspect?
Yeast? Herpes?: Yeast usually causes itching, irritation, and redness of the affected area, sometimes with white discharge. It could cause "white bumps", but usually not as the only symptom.
