herps or razor bump?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have no idea what the hell this is. they I have 6 random bumps on the outer side of my vagina. they,don't hurt and they are hard. this happened after I shaved with a dull razor. they don't itch or anything either and a couple have gone away. they aren't puss filled and they feel smooth. I'm planning on going to the Dr, because I also have to have my IUD removed. I just wanted some opinions on if this is herpies or what it could be.

    I've also had these going on a few weeks. they don't change size or anything and a hair has popped out a few of them and those started to go down a little.

    You do not clarify whether these "bumps" are actually on the vulva, which is different to the vagina.  If it is in the vagina then I would suggest that you seek medical advice immediately.

    The positive thing is that they do not hold any substance, but hard.  My initial reaction is that these bumps could be as a result of an allerigic reation to a razor, and particualry if you use a lubricant, whether it be simple soap and water; or a foam. The fact that it is a "dull razor" has a difference between a sharp razor. If you are using a "mans'" type razor, the nature of the machine (which technically a razor with a "floating head" takes  a very fine scrape of dead skin with it.

    One of the reasons why men feel "fresher" after a face shave is that the older, dead skin is lifted from the face making it feel fresher.

    There is an issue with women using this since the pubic hair in the region of the vulva and immediate area around the pelvic girdle.

    The argument is that the hair is a barrier to bacteria and similar potentially infectious diseases which may be air borne to substance such as semen and vaginal discharge following intercourse cannot cause issues for simple sexual diseases. 

    The bottom line is see a doctor or a specialist gynaecologist.

    A razor can have a similar effect in terms of reaction to the foil of an electric razor.
