Lots of small white bumps on vagina, itchy and sore to the touch. What is it? Please help

Edited , 14 users are following.

I had unprotected sex a day ago with a partner I've been exclusive with for a couple months now, I didn't wash or clean my vagina immediately after sex and only got to shower the next day. I have had some problems with irritation from shaving recently, but today I felt itchy down there, and my vaginal lips are sore to the touch and almost a little swollen. Please look closely at the attached pictures, there are all these small white bumps/dots on my vagina. Can someone please tell me what this could be? I'm very stressed out about it.

Thank you!

    Hmmm. Definitley contact a doctor about this. If its itchy you may have a problem with herpes or genital warts. If your not itching or dont have any symptoms relating to any std you may have a problem with something else less scary

      I do feel some itching and some light stinging/soreness. Doesn't worsen when I pee though. I was looking up what it could be online and at least from the pictures I saw this doesn't really look like herpes or genital warts? Or is there still a high possibility that this is what it is?

    Some spots look like fordyce spots but they are not painful or itchy - I would see your doctor asap to have them take a look. There looks to be an open wound or peeled skin on the first picture and a few prominent bumps

      Yes, I also noticed what looks like a wound or peeled skin. I remember having some super light bleeding, just a streak of light red on some toilet paper when I was wiping after peeing last night right after sex. The itching and soreness/pain only began late today. Any idea what it might be? I'm a student and won't be able to see my gynecologist until later next week due to scheduling issues.

    Has anything been happening to you since you engaged in intercourse? Pain of any sort? Does it hurt to pee? Anything at all?

      Yes, I can feel itching and some soreness/pain around my vagina. I've also been having some white creamy vaginal discharge. It doesn't hurt more to pee than it already does just sitting around, like a light stinging and itching

      Thanks for the reply! I attached an image (I apologize for how graphic it is) that shows more clearly the white bumps, a lot of them near my vaginal opening and it seems like there are also some inside. It also shows the kind of white discharge I have. Does anyone have a better idea of whether if this could be herpes or just an yeast infection? I never had either before. 

      Super super worried :{ and again, my doctor's appointment isn't until next week and I'd really like to get some more information on the situation before then.

      Girl that’s not herpes! That’s a yeast infection , I have the same thing before and looked he same way. Deff thrush don’t worry about it and the discharge look like cottage cheese. You probably irratated it by scratching and yeast infection causes soreness and burning. That was me ! Lol couple months ago been dating my boyfriend and had the same thing and went to get tested and was a yeast infection , I wouldn’t worry at all

      thanks so much! I googled symptoms for yeast infection and I think like you said I fit the symptoms pretty exactly, and my discharge does have a slight beer/bread-like odor so it's probably definitely yeast infection. It's just all the little white bumps made me think it was some sort of blisters or sores like herpes or genital warts. But you're right it's probably just from the overall irritation.

      thx again

      I have those sort of bumps - I was scared when I noticed them but they turned out to just be Fordyce spots/normal bumps. Some vaginas are smooth, some are bumpy, they’re all unique :-)

      Deff couldn’t be warts , and deff

      Couldn’t be herpes. Either fordye spot englarge due to the yeast infection or the yeast infection causing eveything which I am sure that’s what it is because the the discharge look like yeast , you fine girl I jsr get over the counter yeast cream until the doctors appointment so you don’t continue to irrate it and itch it
