Question: I get sores occasionally on vagina

 billie - Sat Feb 18, 2006 11:59 pm

I am 25 yr old female. I went to the doctor got pap smear and std tests done the last time I had this white bump pop up. He lanced it and sent a sample off thinking genital Herpes. Came back negative. I keep having yeast infections also. So I keep scratching b/c it itches. I also have IUD insert. Could I be making the sore? It also kind of looks like an infected hair. However it is red and puffy. It's just on one side of vagina white bump. Doesn't however look like a blister. More like a zit or pimple. I just wanna pop it..but it hurts. Please help I can hardly get comfortable when sitting. P.S. No pain when urinating. Thanks so much for taking the time to help me.

User avatar Hi billie,
Based on your symptoms and description have you been evaluated for a Bartholin cyst/abcess? If you are still experiencing symptoms I would suggest an evaluation.
