hey all!

this is sort of strange, but i have a pimple-like inflammation on my vaginal lip...the labia minora i think. it's the first time it's happened, but there's no pus and it looks like a regular big zit. it also feels rather achy upon trying to squeeze it. any idea on what it is?

Hey there

Are you sexually active?? Because it could be something else besides a pimple if you are.

Also, pimples tend to pop up in the labia majora, where the hair is, due to clogged pores there, or shaving off the hair.

I'm not quite sure if its normal or not to get a pimple on your labia minora, but just like every other part of your body, it does have pores, so i guess it could happen.

Just to be safe though, I'd check in with your doctor. My boyfriend had a bump on the shaft of his penis, and just to be safe, he went to the doctor, and he said it was due to a clogged pore, and it would just go away.

Hope this helps, Best of luck [Smile]

hey, thanks so much for your help [Smile] . i am sexually active, but have not had sex for the past four months as my boyfriend is away, doing medical research. you may be right, that it's just a blocked pore =).

have a good day ahead.
