Question: pimple on Vagina

 precious828 - Tue Aug 25, 2009 5:57 pm

I recently found a pimple on my vagina and a few days later it popped. Now its peeling on the outside and is still a little red and hurts a little. Is there anything I can do to make it go away sooner? Is it a pimple? I just shaved it not even a week ago and now this. Some One Please Help!

User avatar Hello,The description of your condition fits in with a folliculitis,an infection of hair follicle.Generally shaving or plucking of hair predisposes.An antibiotic creme like mupurocin applied externally helps in resolution.If persists your doctor may give you an antibiotic course.Best wishes.
