I have recently been getting small, painful pimple-like zits on the inside of my vagina. They will pop when I squeeze them, and blood and pus come out. I have been married for 5 years and my husband and I are monogamous, so I doubt very highly that I have an STD. Does anyone have any idea what these bumps could be or how to stop them? I've had 4 in the last 2 weeks and they go away within a few day.
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. These bumps on the vagina sound like boils or infected hair follicles. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. Apply warm compresses and topical antibiotics on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. If there are recurrent boils, then please get your blood sugar levels estimated.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
