I have red a bit painful bumps on one side of the vagina. I got tested and had a pap done a month ago...Also I've been dry a lot down there.?

Doctor can evaluate: Bumps may be cysts filled with dead skin cells and/or oily sebaceous gland secretions. Sometimes an infection happens if bacteria get inside the bumps and cause white blood cells to go there (causing pus). Herpes causes painful bumps, too. A primary care doctor, a dermatologist, or an ob-gyn doctor can evaluate and give some recommendations. ...Read more

I am not sure but I think I could ringworm infection during contact with my boyfriend as he had it. Currently I am using ketoconazole lition. Is it good to cure ringworm around vagina? Or can you some medicine available in india for the same.

Maybe not ringworm: There are several kinds of superficial fungal and yeast infections, and ringworm is one of them. However, ringworm rarely involves the genital area. Rather than self diagnosis and self treatment, I recommend you stop the ketoconazole cream and see your doctor. Or ideally, you and your partner see a doctor together for treatment recommendations. Good luck. ...Read more

Why is my vagina irritated and now bleeding after sex? The opening to my vagina has been very irritated and itchy all week. No swelling or redness. It has been dry as well. I had sex this morning, it was sort of painful. And I immediately started bleeding

Why is my vagina irritated and now bleeding after sex? The opening to my vagina has been very irritated and itchy all week. No swelling or redness. It has been dry as well. I had sex this morning, it was sort of painful. And I immediately started bleeding

It: It sounds like you are dealing with a vaginal yeast or bacterial infection. Since your vagina is dry and irritated the tissue is inflammed and having sex can irritate the tissue further thus causing bleeding. I recommend you visit a doctor for evaluation and treatment. If that is not an option for you, you can try an over the counter yeast infection medication like Monistat or clotrimazole. If you do that and your symptoms do not improve then you definitely need to visit a doctor.
Good luck and happy new year. ...Read more
