Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for some time so ill quickly answer this question for you. Actually, from what you are describing it sounds like that you may have developed a small bacterial infection of the hair follicles in the area, this would lead to the development of small white pus-filled bumps in the area. This is known as folliculitis and in most cases applying topical OTC, antibiotics would be effective in getting rid of the infection however sometimes you would also need oral antibiotics to completely eliminate the infection. The initial rash could also be associated with this problem. Usually using OTC Neosporin on the skin outside the area would be effective however if the lesions are inside the vagina or on the opening of the vagina then you should have this evaluated by your doctor and get treated with oral antibiotics.

If you have a picture of the area, I would be happy to review it and see if this is folliculitis or something else. In the meantime do start using OTC anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen at a dose of 400 mg thrice daily along with OTC anti histamines like Claritin or Zyrtec.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
