Question: Bumps on Vulva area


 Jenflower - Sat Jul 07, 2007 2:45 pm

Hi, I'm 28 yr old female.
I have some vertical bumps on each side of my vulva at the very bottom and I'm wondering if this is normal. I am also a little itchy. I don't think it could be a STD because I haven't been sexually active for years. Anyone have any ideas?
Also I'm wondering if there is a gynecologist that I could contact and send a picture of the bumps to get a more accurate diagnosis.

Thanks!!

User avatar Bumps on vulva may be an indication of a genital wart virus or vaginosis. It could also be something else entirely. You should see a doctor (family practice or OB/GYN). I don't think you will find a doctor comfortable with diagnosing this on the internet by pictures. A clinical assessment would be required. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply.
Your right it could be one of those but yes it's hard to know for sure. I would really like to avoid a trip to the gynecologist because of money issues. If I can get it diagnosed on line I would much perfer that and then I could look into natural treatments. Anyway if anyone has experienced these and knows how to identify them or if there are any doctors willing to try to make a guess from a pic please please e-mail me at jenflowerj@hotmail.com and I will send you a pic.

Thanks!
