Hi, I have had these white spots all over my vagina. They have been there for as along as I can remember. I am still a virgin and have no clue as to what these are. I've tried popping and squeezing them, but to no avail. They are all over my labia as well. They do not hurt, but are everywhere and extremely embarassing. My mother just admitted that she got herpes from her previous boyfriend before my father, so I'm not sure if that could have attributed to it or not. I have heard that the chances of being born with it are slim to none, so I have my doubts. I just really want these "spots" to go away. They are irritating and I wish they would be out of my life for good.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The diagnosis cannot be commented upon for the âspotsâ that you describe without examining you. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist to have examination done to see if they are due to infective cause. Avoid manipulating them as you can introduce infection. Treatment as appropriate would be started to help you. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area (vagina has its own mechanism of cleaning itself. Use of these products harms the normal bacteria of vagina and it becomes susceptible to infection). Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes (make sure your undergarments are washed properly and have no traces of detergent in them). If you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection and avoid having unprotected intercourse while both of you are on treatment course.
