Small Lumps Itch Around The Outside Of The Vagina?
Tonight, I am 21 years old. I have been feeling itchy in the area of the vagina that is overgrown with hair (precisely near the edge of the vaginal cleavage). There is a small lump like an ant / mosquito bite, very gatall and very annoying. The more scratched it makes me sore because I got scratched. What is the cause and how to get rid of it 🙁 my feelings are diligent in replacing CDs and sanitary pads when using mens. I don’t use weird soap too.
Hello Tika, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Lumps in the vaginal area that are overgrown with hair and itchy may be caused by an infection in the hair follicles called folliculitis. Folliculitis usually looks like a small zit that grows in the area of hair growth. This condition is not dangerous, but can cause discomfort due to itching and can also be painful. Some other possibilities are:
boils or boils of insect bites or other small animals contact dermatitis atopic dermatitis seborrheic dermatitis fungal infections of the skin To be able to confirm the diagnosis of an abnormality of the skin a direct examination of the lesion is needed, therefore you should check yourself with your doctor, either a general practitioner or a dermatologist . If indeed the lesions on your skin are caused by folliculitis, then in fact these lesions can heal by themselves in a few days. But if after 7 days the lesion on your skin does not improve, it gets bigger, feels pain, or it spreads more and more, you should immediately check yourself to the doctor.
Meanwhile some things you can do:
Do not be scratched. Keep the groin area clean, wash with soap and water softly every time you shower and rinse all the remaining soap afterwards. Make sure you dry the crotch area well before using underpants. Use underpants that absorb sweat and are gentle to the skin, you should not use underpants too tight. Don't use outer pants too tightly or in layers. Avoid shaving pubic hair for a while. the area of the skin lesion with a warm compress to accelerate healing of the lesion.
