I have been worrying about this for quite some time and I have a dr appt next week but in the meantime I wanted to ask what you thought. I have these little tiny vaginal bumps on my labia majora – like on top of the clitoris (you can really only see them if you stretch the skin and look closely). I have found that a few times in the last year they seem to get inflamed or infected and swell up into more of a pimple. They are only in that area and they almost look uniform if that makes any sense. You cant really pop them but I managed to squeeze some white stuff out of one the other day. I noticed that it smelled pretty bad as well. It wasn’t clear watery fluid- but more like a white substance that wasn’t liquid. The other day when I was shopping I started getting really itchy down there and for the past few days I have been itchy and it was been burning a little bit. It is also really red down there. I also must add that I had a wedding the day before and I shaved my entire public area and also used a ton of soap down there which always seems to irritate the area. Also wore pantyhose which I know is not good when it comes to yeast infections. I don’t get a ton of yeast infections but I do get a few every year and it seems like it almost feels like a mild one. There was some discharge in the beginning (white thick discharge) but now there doesn’t seem to be anything. Do you think this could be herpes or something serious? I feel like I have had these tiny bumps for a while but I get nervous when they seem to flare up. Thanks in advance.

  • Yeah, all the stuff can inflame us...but, I would get a blood test for herpes2 just so you don't spread it if you have it...watch the soap and stuff and demand the blood test for sure..get a pap, too..

  • You sound a lot like me... All women have discharge, things like birth control and stress and such can change that...Anyway, I have genital warts which come and go on their own. If I am really stressed and have a significant breakout, they can be itchy. The burning... I also have problems maintaining the PH of my vagina, and that can have some impact.Really just ask your doctor, telling them what you told us. It could be a very large number of things.Good luck
