I'm Sexually active, and I do shave my vagina, often. Maybe once or twice a week. I started to feeling a burn and a itching on my vagina lip, and when I woke up, I had a small bump. It wasn't a white head, or pimple like. It begin to bother me, throughout the whole day, so, i tried popping it. [[Because at the time i thought maybe it was a pimple]]. But it has gotten bigger, swollen, and very painful. Its under my skin, Almost as big as a bead on a necklace or something, but it is veryyy sore. I'm not sure what it is, if its a boil, or a ingrown hair [[does that sound like it could be a ingrown hair?]]. I'm 17, and working on getting my licenses, which I can't go to my doctor, and If I did, i would have to tell my grandmother [[who i am staying with]], and i'm not really open to her about my sex life [[if it has anything to do with sexual activity]] and shaving 'down there'.
If this sounds fimiliar and you might know what it could be, could you tell me what i could possibly do to make it go away, or atleast ease the pain...
I know theres alot of meds you can't use around your vagina, but would peroxide or neosporin [[sp?]] work? What do you suggest?

dont worry i had the same problem. i went to planned parenthood, and the doctor said it was just a bump of hairs trying to grow. she said to put neonsporin, it should help the swelling, or heat patch. it has nothing to do with herpies or warts. i heard they grow outside of skin, not inside, and normally these bumps grow inside. also if you have no insurance try going to planned parenthood nearest to you. they are very confidential about anything, and it doesnt cost you a dime, because i myself dont have health insurance. good luck

I have something similar to this happening to me right now. It started as a smal lump. I thought that it was a pimple, and I also tried to pop it... That didn't work. Then I woke up the next morning and it is swollen to twice the size. I have a hard time just sitting down. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to what to do. I think that maybe it's infected or something. I have been putting alchol on it. I do not have insurance, and I have never had anything like this happen before. Any help would really be great.

I have the same problem right now and I have been trying to pop it for days. It doesn't do anything but bleed and some watery stuff comes out idk what that is. Its so gross and I've had this thing for almost a month. I haven't had sexual intercouse since june and its october. But I do trim it. Could someone pleaser help. I want to try alcohol but doesn't that burn? Its just in one place and it hurt really bad when I try to pop it. It get bigger and it bothers me sometimes. What can I do to make it go away like fast. I'm getting really scared :-(

the same exact thing is happening with me. it hurts so bad to even lay on my stomach because if anything touches it, its just a piercing pain. mine is swollen. when i tried popping it, a decent amount of puss came out but no hair. i havent tried popping it since because thats what made it hurt. its so red just in that area. i have no other sores or anything, so i dont think its herpes? im starting to freak out a little bit but im not worried about having a std.

I have the same thing and it's severely painful. I tried to squeeze it before it was ready and made it much worse. It's deep under my skin with no head. Just a hard knot. I do shave and i'm thinking that could be it but i don't see any ingrown hair. Any idea's what it could be? It started out the size of a pea now it's about the size of a small cherry. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow. It's hard to sit, stand pretty much do anything. I'm in misery!

I had the same thing happen to me last night I noticed the bump and immediately thought ingrown hair and after I got out the shower and laid down I felt a warm liquid on my vagina I do shave down there as well but only like once a month but anyways I ran to the bathroom and the bump bust so I squeezed it a little more and out comes two long hairs along with blood and puss so I cleaned myself up and it became really sore so I warmed my rice sock in the microwave and the pain eased and the size of the bump decreased.
