Red face White, pimple outside vagina

Can someone help? I am a 30 year old married woman who has been in a mono. relationship for 10 years. Yesterday I noticed I was a bit red around my vaginal lips. I thought it was from rubbing during sex, but then last night I noticed a white pimple looking thing where I am irritated. It is about the size of a pin head and round, just a bit raised, almost flat. It wasn't really sore at first, but no it is bothersome.


Any ideas?

I haven't had what you are describing but it could be an ingrown hair from shaving or waxing- or just a regular pimple that will go away- if it doesn't start to go away in a few days i would have it checked out just to make sure its not a cyst or some type of (don't be offended) genital wart- i hope this helps

Pimples and boils are common in the vaginal/perineal area. Just keep the area clean and dry and it will most likely go away on it's own. If it doesn't then see the doc to have it looked at. Just remember to wash you hands well after touching near that area as the staph bacteria is easily spread.

thanks for the quick answers. Just to follow-up, It is really in an area where there is not hair growth. What would a boil look like?

Hi, if I were you, and since the bump is not in an area where there are hair folicles, I would make an appointment with a gyn asap. It could be a number of things like a boil, cyst, etc., but could also be something like herpes (the bump along with the irritation sounds kinda like it). You should definately go in while your symptoms are still there so your doctor can have a look. Better to be safe than sorry.

thanks again. Actually, with a hand mirror, I got a better look. There are several white spots(very small) and the one that is bothering me seems a bit irritated. '

Does that sound like herpes?
