I have a pimple on my inner labia, and man, this thing hurts. I have a genetic and personal history of those huge, cystic zits. I find that the ones on my face respond well to hot salt water compresses and Neosporin, but I am unsure if these are safe for my labia.

If not, do you have any suggestions?

If feels as though I have a rock in between my labia, although it's the size of a small Nerdz or something.

I am currently on Ortho Tri Cyclene and Tetracylene, if that makes any difference. The zits still come, but aren't nearly as bad as they could be with out the Tetracylcene.

Thanks much for any suggestions!

Has your GYN confrimed it is, indeed, a zit (because the inner labia is much like the tissue in your mouth, not skin -- it'd be pretty bizarre to get a pimple there)?

If not, go ahead in there. While it's actually pretty common to get benign labial cysts, they may not always be benign, and you'll want to check in and make sure.

In the interim, a warm compress really can't hurt anything, and neither could a hot bath with oatmeal or another organic skin-calming additive.

I haven't had my doctor confirm it...I first noticed it two days ago, and my appointment was a few months ago.

It just seems very similar to the other zits I've had on my labia, complete with the little white head.

If it doesn't go away on it's own in a few days, I'll get it checked out.

Well, I went to the doctor on Monday. It's a blocked gland. All I need to do is sit in a nice hot bath...Oh, the horror. An excuse to take a nice long hot bath. Oh darn.

It's going away now, and I feel better knowing what it is. Or was, seeing as it's going away.
