Irritation and Bumps

10/07/2009

Question:

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex a few days ago. I know he didn`t have bumps or anything and neither did I. I got my period two days ago and then this morning when I woke up I noticed little pimple like bumps on the outside of my vagina. The area around my vagina was red and painful. It looks like it is irritated but I`m not sure. What could it be.

Answer:

This could be from a number of things like: pimple, folliculitis (irritation of the base where the hair comes out from the skin), infection or an allergic reaction.

Please visit your doctor so this could be evaluated and managed accordingly.
