I have two small bumps on my vagina. they're not near the canal or opening, but a little higher up (north). they aren't large; about the size of a pimple. they don't get any larger or worse and they don't itch or burn. they're just simply there. but it is starting to scare me because they showed up about a month ago and haven't gone away. I've been with the same guy for 6 months and have only had sex with him for that long. he's clean and I'm clean. I really don't think its an STD because me nor my boyfriend have any STDs or infections. nor have we ever had any. I just cant think of how this got here or how I could get rid of it. I really am NOT looking forward to going to see a doctor about this because I think (and hope) it's something minor. any advice or information? please?
Small painless bumps near the vagina can be sebaceous cysts,due to shaving,trauma,allergy etc.Since it is not associated with any pain,itching and is not even increasing in size it does not seem to be serious.
Sebaceous cysts usually disappear on their own after some time but if they are infected can develop into abscess.
Wash the area with Tea Tree oil mixed in water.
Wear loose cotton undies and avoid tight fitting clothes.
Keep observing them and if there is development of any symptom as discharge or pain then consider visiting a Gynaecologiost for evaluation.
