Help!! Please!!!

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have a raised lump about half an inch long on the right labia majora with a red sore. I have no discharge and there is no head. It's a bit sensitive to the touch and sometimes itches like crazy. It's been there for a while. Doesnt seem to be an ingrown hair. If i try and squeeze it it gets inflammed and sore. imageimage

    Dont touch it and dont mess with it too much. It can be hard for sores and lesions to heals in areas that are so prone to moisture. Salt baths and baking soda pastes have helped me to dry out a sore, but be careful because these can also cause irritation for your vulva and vagina if over done. You might want to try going to urgent care if you cannot get in to your gyno. By feburary it will likely be healed and they will have nothing to look at or swab. Best of luck

      Thank you for your reply and i hate to report that i ended up squeezing it earlier and a yellowish pus came out first, then clear pus then bloody pus. The bump is drained and i wiped it with alcohol. I'm beginning to think it's an infected hair follicle.

    if you popped it and puss came out. strike warts off your list. doesnt follow ordinary characteristics of herpes either and i assume no other symptoms. the itching could be from your own subconcious getting the best of you? id try an std clinic to be on the safe side.

      Yeah it's absolutely not a wart. Other than it being itchy and sometimes sensitive I have no other symptoms no discharge no painful urination.. because it's been there for a while really makes me believe that it's an ingrown hair or a infected hair follicle. I'm going to try and get in and get it checked out but having no Health Care really puts a damper on things..

      im not sure where you live. but planned parenthood has free to low cost std testing for people with and without insurance. please look into that more.

      further do some research. pop up clinics drive around the country to give free to little cost testing.

      further your town or whatever you live in could have a free clinic for residents. all you have to do is show an id to prove you live there. not having health insurance is easier than it ever was. there are options out there for you!!!
