I was wondering if you could tell me in the last

Customer Question

I was wondering if you could tell me in the last 4 months I've had lumps on both side of the part where my leg and private meet. But within a week they went away the appered again after a week and a half but they went away. Then about 2 weeks ago I got another lump this time it was on my top outer labia of my vagina. I am a little worried but again within a week it went away by itself.

do you shave this area?

Yes I do

most likely what you are getting is a local infection. It is probably due to shaving. It is called folliculitis. I would recommend stopping shaving (trim if possible) and see your doctor if it persists
