i recently noticed that my vaginia was very red when i was in the shower because when i was washing myself i noticed a discomfort. i checked and my vaginia is very red and swollen. I also noticed what looks like very small bumps, mainly to the right side. I also have what looks like cuts inside of my vaginia. Kinda like its chapped or something, like your hands get in the winter. The cut like features i have had on and off for awhile and i am just now noticing the bumps. If you have any idea what this could be please let me know. thanks.

This could be vaginitis. The 3 most common causes of vaginitis are bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis (yeast infection) and trichomoniasis. Vaginal discharge may also result from sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea or chlamydia.
This is usually accompanied by discharge and/or itching.
You need to be evaluated by your doctor.
