I have question about cysts.

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

Please go ahead.

Where are the cysts?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hello, the cysts are located on my pubic hair and around the vaginal they are small. I did not start having them until I had two children but they were c-section. I know it can't be an std because if it was I share food and drinks with my family and they do not have this problem.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for further information.

The cysts in this area are commonly; sebaceous or dermoid cysts. Both of these are non STD cysts. But as you mentioned, an STD like genital warts occasionally may present with lesions you described. All of these are amenable to electric cautery which is an office procedure (you do not need hospital admission) and get rid just as an out-patient.

If you wish, you may post a photo here of one of the cysts.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

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

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I'm sorry I could not send the photo. There was an issue submitting. Thank you for your help
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.

These are likely to be sebaceous cysts. These are not STD. This can be removed surgically under numbing medication (local anesthesia) as a office procedure.

Best wishes,
