Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of nodules on the lips of the vagina to the buttocks may indicate allergic pads. Usually, this condition will appear when you just replace the pad. Other people may not experience the same reaction when using pads similar to yours. This happens because, your body considers contact with these pads as dangerous, when in fact they are not. In addition to allergies, some types of pads can also cause skin irritation due to the content of its irritating components. The symptoms of irritation because pads are often also very similar to allergies. Not only nodules on the skin, allergies and irritations can also make the skin around the vagina and buttocks feel itchy, reddish, dry, peel, to swell and create discomfort that disturbs.
In addition to allergies and irritations due to pads, allergies and irritations can also occur due to other causes, such as soap, vaginal deodorizers, spermicides, sexual lubricants, certain clothing materials, and so on. It could also be that your complaint arises for other reasons, besides allergies and irritants, for example folliculitis, miliaria, scabies, tinea cruris, warts, hyperkeratosis, atopic dermatitis, drug eruptions, and so on.
It's best if you don't worry too much. Resolve your complaint with the following trick:
Clean the vagina and buttocks well after urinating, in the shower, and after having sex (if you are married) Do not use chemicals that are prone to trigger allergies and irritation around the vagina and buttocks (as mentioned above) Always wear underwear clean, not tight, made from absorbing sweat Do not peel or squeeze the pimple in the vagina and buttocks, especially with dirty hands When menstruating, choose pads that are soft, have high absorption, and do not contain harmful chemicals, then replace these pads at least 4 hours do not have risky sex, especially if you are not married. If the complaint still does not improve with the steps above, do not hesitate to go directly to a doctor or a specialist in skin and genitals so that they are handled well, okay?
I hope this helps.
