Hello.

Did you recently had unprotected sex? Did this appeared after sex?
Is this pimple painful?
Any discharge from this pimple?
Any past medical issue?

I've had unprotected sex recently BUT that red pimple like blister appeared before I had sex. I've had another one not to long ago on my left side and it went away by itself but this one is much bigger. Its weird because I seem to get them right on the stretch marks that I have. Yes, its a little bit painful. No, there is no discharge from the pimple. The pimple like blisters look like they are full of blood instead of pus like. Nope, I havent had any medical issues in my past.
Doctor: Dr. Robert, Doctor replied 8 years ago

Well, this can be due to - Blocked hair follicles, or folliculitis - The most common cause is-

Clogged sweat glands- These sweat glands can be infected. It , can be treated with a course of antibiotics.

If earlier also you had unprotected sex, then there is possibility is of STD - Genital herpes. The outbreak is usually the most painful, patient has vaginal discharge or painful urination, and muscle aches. But in your case, it does not look to be STD.

Ideally, you need to get clinical examination from Gynecologist, and you will be advised management accordingly.

Why do I tend to get them right on the stretch mark? Are they full of blood?
Doctor: Dr. Robert, Doctor replied 8 years ago
It may occur due to infection in the sweat glands, located in that region. Usually they contain pus.
A clinical examination is required at this stage, for diagnosis. It can be managed with medications.
Please do not panic, and get it managed.
I wish for your good health.

The other day I tried poking it but no pus nor blood came out. Why is it really soft,red, and raised up. Is it that important for my to get medical attention. Will it go away by itself?
Doctor: Dr. Robert, Doctor replied 8 years ago
I understand, your concern. But a clinical examination is very important at this stage, and also you should not ignore it.
I advise you to get it managed from your doctor.
take care
