So I have had a couple bumps around my vagina area, basically right on my underwear line. They're very similar to boils- painful, red, sometimes a white head, sometimes not. They go away eventually but leave a purple scar spot and sometimes a hard knot.
What are these? Are they some kind of vaginal wart?
I've never had sex, I've only made out with people before. Could making out have caused something like this? Do I need to get this checked out?
It could be something called a pressure sore. It can happen from clothing like underwear rubbing or sitting a way it doesn't normally causing pressure to build up under the skin. May also just be pimples, they do occur there as well. What I would suggest though is seeing a doctor just to be sure if you notice them again.
