: : : Hi all. This is kind of a strange question I guess! Has anyone here had a pimple on the inside lip of the vulva? I have been married for 7 years, so I know it is not an STD....This bump is awfully sore and I think it may be a pimple...is this possible? I have been prone to cystic acne on my face so I am wondering if this is the same thing but in a different area?\
: : : thanks.
: : It is possible to be an acne like bump or it could be a something else. If it looks like a pimple or infectected hair follicle you can use a hot compress several times a day and see if it clears up on it's own. If it doesn't clear up on it's own then it's time to have the doctor check it out. When you examined it did it look like it had a pus filled center? This is usually a good indication that it is an infection that will respond to hot compresses.
: ***It does have a whitehead on the top...(like a pimple) but the bump is hard...almost looks like it is filled with blood too??? Acutally, the swelling has gone down some today.
Oh my god! Thanks for posting. I have had the same problem. There is a bump on my vulva and it looks like a pimple. I actually was able to pop it. (stuff came out ewww) I have no STD's (Married two years but have been with husband for five) I did not know if you could get a pimple down there.
Well I feel relieved.
