Hi, recently (in the last month or so) the front of my vagina has been incredibly itchy. I have also noticed a few flesh coloured lumps where it itches and there are becoming a few more i can feel but you cant really see them. Sometimes when i itch i get a little bleeing rash around there as well. What is this as i am really worried and really want the itching to stop! The last time i had sex was about 5-6 months ago and was unprotected but surely it wouldnt have just come up recently if it had anything to do with that? They dont look like warts, as i sai you can barley see them only feel them.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The itching could suggest possibility of infection, dryness, skin conditions etc. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for your symptoms without examining you. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you control your symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection and avoid having intercourse while being on the treatment. Avoid unprotected intercourse.
