Vulvar folliculitis or inflammation of pubic hair roots.
- Bartholin cyst. These lumps can be caused by infection and contain pus. These cysts can be small and painless.
- Genital warts. Is a small bulge with a rough surface, generally accompanied by itching.

The following things you can do at home: take a bath or bath with warm water, wear cotton underwear and not tight, keep your body and vital organs clean, clean the vagina with clean water, avoid using feminine cleaning fluids, avoid using perfume on the vagina , exercise regularly, avoid smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages, and multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables.
