Itchiness and bumps on Vulva

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello... I’m really concerned about the  itchiness and bumps on my vagina... I had sexual intercourse with somebody 4 days ago and I started feeling these symptoms 2 days ago... I’m not sure if it is the person who I’ve slept with because we used protection but of course something can always go wrong. I had unprotected sexual intercourse about 2 weeks ago with a different person as well. It looks like little yellow pimples and white sores as well. I’m very itchy and it kind of burns when I pee. I have never had a yeast infection so I went out and bought the ointment to treat it and I’m on my second day of using it. I have felt much better and not so itchy but the bumps are still there. I have my appointment in 2 days but I’m just so anxious to find out what I have and I can’t seem to get my mind off of it. I have researched my symptoms and I’m so scared the results will come back in saying I have either Herpes or Genital Warts.

    You'd need to get tested, but those symptoms don't sound good.  Herpes would be a lot more likely than warts, but you may not have any STI at all.  If you have caught something, it's more likely to have come from the person you slept with two weeks ago btw.

    You could either see your GP, or if you're in the UK, you could go to a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic - google "GUM clinic near me" for details.

    If you could update this thread and tell us what the doctors say, it would be appreciated.  Good luck.

      Well HSV1 is the strain of the virus herpes that usually only affects the area of the mouth hence the name oral herpes.  Which is a lot more common and easier to deal with than HSV2 which the second strain of the herpes virus that usually affects the genital area hence again which is why is called genital herpes.

      Thanks for the update.  It does still count as genital herpes I'm afraid, but if it's with the HSV-1 virus, it's nowhere near as bad as being infected with the HSV-2 virus.  Around half of people with genital herpes caused by HSV-1 only ever have one episode, and even if it recurs, further recurrences are a lot less frequent than with the HSV-2 virus.
