A Pimple-like Lump In The Clitoris Area?
, I want to ask, 1 week ago I went to the obstetrician because I felt something strange when I had sex, there was a feeling of pain in the clitoris, then when the doctor checked it, he said that there was a small lump like a pimple, then he broke it , after that the doctor cleaned the inside because he said there was vaginal discharge. r nAfter that I was given the clindamycin cap of 300 Mg for 3 days (10 points) after finishing the drug, my vaginal discharge was reduced but still there, the doctor said that it was still vaginal discharge after I took the drug, the doctor recommended for a vaginal swab culture and resistance to vaginal discharge. After that I went to Spkk and consulted about the “acne”, but the doctor said he said it was normal anatomy, but I felt something strange because I felt the pimples were coming back. R nI experience symptoms such as: r nSometimes I like to feel that my lower stomach hurts, then when I get BAK I don’t feel finished so not long after I get BAK I want BAK again (but it’s different from anyang2). r nMy questions: r n1. When is the best time to do a vaginal swab test? R n2. Can I do this test can I tell when I have a painful relationship because of a small “pimple” on the clitoris? R n3. How good is it for me to do what test to find out what acne really is? R n4. What to do for vaginal swabs? R n5. Do I have an STI? Or am I getting a pelvic infection? If you really have to undergo a test, what kind of test should I do? R nI am waiting for the answer, thanks in advance. Hopefully my worries are answered.
Thank you for the question.
Acne-like lumps on the clitoris area have many reasons:
Folliculitis. Inflammation of the hair follicles due to a bacterial or fungal infection. Allergic Reaction. A history of taking certain drugs can trigger allergies. Irritation. Using soap, powder, or perfume on the genital area can cause irritation. Genital herpes. Herpes virus type 2 causes symptoms of rashes filled with water, painful burning, and sometimes accompanied by itching. Molluscum contagiosium. Symptoms are like a pimple with a dot in the middle. Genital warts. Growing flesh in the area of the genitals and rectum Epidermoid cysts on the clitoris. The vaginal discharge that you experience can be a combination of symptoms from the acne bumps you experience, it can also be a normal condition before menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and pre-menopause. Leucorrhoea also exists in:
Infection with Chlamydia trachomatis Gonorrhea Trichomoniasis Syphilis Candidiasis Pelvic inflammatory disease Obesity Diabetes Use of hormonal birth control Foreign objects in the vagina, including intrauterine contraceptives.
A vaginal swab examination is a screening test to detect the cause of the vaginal discharge you are experiencing. After the results of this filter test come out, it will be known whether it is a sexually transmitted disease or not. Other tests that need to be done are:
PAP smear. This test is recommended for every woman who has had sex before. Blood. Routine blood and blood sugar checks for infection. Culture. Culture the germs you get from a vaginal swab to determine the type of germs and their sensitivity to antibiotics. The suggestions that I can give:
Maintain cleanliness in your intimate area by frequently changing your underwear and not letting it get wet Not using washing soap too often Do not shaving pubic hair Frequently changing sanitary napkins during menstruation If complaints still persist, it is advisable to check with an Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist .
