Question: white bumps inside vagina

 xoxoSmilexoxo - Wed Oct 29, 2008 4:46 pm

im 18 years old and i have noticed that i have white bumps on the inside of my vagina. Is this something i should be concerned about? How can i get rid of them? Or can you tell me what they are?

User avatar Hello,
First you would have to get a correct diagnosis and it would require that a health care provider see the bumps you describe. They could be harmless sebaceous cysts which can occasionally become infected. It would not be possible to say if this is it for sure. It also might make a difference if you are sexually active. This is information your doctor needs.

Best wishes.
