Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Hello the Chat is not working - do NOT click on any rating yet - please.Can you describe these bumps and what they look like and the size?
are you working on an answer
I'm sorry - did you see my question that I had asked you?Can you describe these bumps a bit more, such as size and what they look like?Do you also shave?
I do not shave or haven't for years. They are very small and only on one side.
What medications have you tried to help if anything?
I was at my ob gyn doctor a few weeks ago and mentioned I had some itching problem but he only checked for a yeast infection. I probably should have been more specific.
Do they have clear fluid or a whitish material in them?
Have you looked at them with a mirror?
I guess they look kind of white
okay - have you used any new laundry detergent?Worn any new clothes?
No, I don't think so. And I have had them for quite awhile. Do you think it is something serious?
And, it is only on one side, is that all?have you had them Cultured or biopsied?do you have normal PAP smears?
Only on one side, yes. Have not had them biopsied. I have normal pap smears.
And, can you tell me how long you have had these - you have only said for awhile?
Probably for a few months at least. I don't think it has been a year.
okay - well this is hard to say what this is - but these could be vulva warts from your description.These could also be sebaceous cysts.And, I really do not think posting a picture is appropriate, so please do not do that - but you should get this looked at in person - to get a Culture and a possible biopsy.If these were 'warts' these can be treated with Aldara cream (a prescription) for example.Or other treatment might be freezing with nitrogen, or even treatment with laser or TCA - Trichloracetic acid.But, you do need to get a good diagnosis first - and having had this for a few months, definitely deserves a good diagnosis, and unlikely this is anything serious.
I hope this helps Please, if you have more questions, please ask
