Customer Question

I have 3 or 4 small pimple like things at the top of my vagina in the pubic hair. I cant se them well but they are smaller than a pencil eraser, and dont feel like they would even pop...like a skin tag but round and red. My gyno said they are serbacious cysts but i dont think she looked at them very closely

Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

Since how long have they been there?
Is there any pain or tenderness?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I noticed them quite awhile ago....months. They did not get bigger...and are not itchy or painful...only slightly hurt if i attempt to pop them...but they dont seem solid like a pimple...

Thanks for the further information.

This is likely to be dermoid cyst or epidermoid cyst. These cysts if do not give symptoms usually do not warrant treatment. If they become painful and tender than a surgical excision under local anesthesia (numbing medication) can be done as an office procedure.

Rarely Milia or pilar cyst too may present in this area you have described. But far commoner are dermoid or epidermoid cyst.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
