Hello, I am a sexually active 20 year old female. I have been screened for STDs several times since becoming sexually active, and have always been clear. I also had an annual and a Pap smear just over a month ago with no problems. Recently, I had been feeling as if I had a small cut on the area between my vaginal opening and my anus. I thought it could have occurred from shaving, as I am not always very careful and have cut myself in this area before, or from sex, which I have on an almost daily basis with my current boyfriend. A few days ago, I noticed a single, small painless raised bump on the inner labia minora, left side, near the vaginal opening. The bump itself does not hurt at all, however, the cut that I had been feeling (which does not hurt, but is just slightly irritating when touched or rubbed) was right next to the bump. There is no sign of pus or blistering on the bump, and when I tried to pop it, I couldn't. I don't think that it's herpes, because it doesn't hurt or seem like a blister, but I don't want to pick at it, because that just makes it worse. Could this bump have been as a result of shaving? I don't think there are hair follicles in this area, but could a bump result from a cut as well? Is it possible that the bump was there first and the cut came as a result of shaving over it or irritation from rough sex? I am planning on seeing my gyno soon, but any sugggestions as to what this could be in the meantime? Or ways to make it go away and heal the cut? Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you.
