Q: What causes vaginal pimples?

Occassionally I get a tiny, pimple-like bump that is sore and sensitive somewhere in my vaginal area.  It is currently on the edge of my urethra.  There is never more than one, and it is never hard or crusty and goes away within a few days.  Is it herpes, or what are the other possibilities?  I get really nervous because I'm in a committed relationship.

I have read about little pimples appearing in the vaginal area, mostly on the inside of the labia.  Does it look like it has a white head like a pimple?  But, I'm not sure about the urethra area.  You should definately go to a doctor though.  Too many people, I find, try to diagnose themselves.  We, as women, have very complicated bodies and we need to take care of them.  And with the sore being on your urethra, could complicate the urinary tract.  Definately have a physician check it out.  Good luck!

I see that you posted a while ago, but I wondered if you had ever seen a doctor for a diagnosis.  I am not a phsyician and can't diagnose you, but I agree with our community member that having a doctor check it out is a good idea.  It could be something very minor, but it may be symptomatic of a larger issue.


Please let us know how you are doing and what yo've learned.  I'm sure you could be of great help to someone else in the community.


Best of luck, and I hope you are doing well.
