Also, no itching. The skin looks white around the opening of my vagina and the little area between that and my butt. Trouble sitting, and walking- it's painful. I asked my partner and he says he does not have herpes.Also prior to this issue I thought I might have a UTI so my doctor gave me a three day course of antibiotics due to small teases of bacteria in my urine sample about a week ago.

3days it's looked white
6-7 days the burning inflammation has been there and about 3 days for the bump.

It's difficult to be very sure without seeing you and doing an exam.

When the skin looks white around the vaginal opening and the area between there and the anus, it's usually a condition called lichen sclerosus. It's a skin condition that we don't know why it occurs, but it can cause irritation and is easily injured.

I would have to see the bump, but I suspect that the bump and the stinging and swelling are due to skin injury from the rough sex. If so, they will require some time to heal. Sitting in water with epsom salts will be soothing and healing.

I think you really should see a good OB/GYN doctor to be sure just what is going on.

The bump could also be a number of other things, including a genital wart.
