Is it unusual to find pimples around the vagina or feel them on the inside? No it is not unusual. You can get pimples wherever you have pores. Any unusual skin eruption says it is in your best interest to have a checkup. All skin problems have reason for occurrence. Pimples developing around the genital area can be due to a blocked sebaceous gland that became infected. Another reason is an ingrown hair. It`s quite easy to mistake a pimple for a boil - so be careful and avoid the temptation to squeeze. Popping a pimple whether it be a boil or not is not ideal therapy for ridding pimples. If you have already squeezed the zit, clean debris and dry the area to deter bacteria.
- Bacteria in the pores
- Energetic sebaceous glands
- Hormonal swings
- Tightened cloth around the genitals.
If the condition is to be treated with appropriate medication - then genital warts or herpes has to be ruled out first as not being responsible. If vaginal pimples have been diagnosed it is vitally important for the vaginal surroundings kept clean and dry. Sweaty warm sites are ideal for harmful bacterium. Cleanse with gentle soap and warm water. Treatment comes mainly in oral form (tetracycline, erythromycin or tretinoin) and via a prescription issued by your doctor. In some cases birth control pills are given to regulate out of balance hormones.
Help heal vaginal pimples by wearing slacker clothing, "tight is not right," neither is it healthy. Consider swapping washing powder, as harsh detergents do not help. Acupuncture is another method used proving effective in ridding the problem. Patience is virtue, treatments do work but it can take weeks before seeing an improvement.
It helps to know the differences between vaginal pimples and other diseases if you tend on treating the condition yourself. It is best to have the advice from a person from medical practice first.
Genital warts, caused by some types of HPV (human papilloma virus), can appear on the skin round the genitals. Normally they are seen as white or pink smooth bumps, or big fleshy cauliflower shaped lumps. They sound scary, but no time for worrying, a time for healing.
Some medical terms used for conditions are frightening and cause unnecessary stress, but remember that most, if not all, are effectively treated and cured. There are more than 100 different subtypes of HPV, and around 30 of them specifically affect the genitals. Other HPV subtypes cause warts to grow on other body parts, such as the hands. My own experience of warts on the hands - had me follow the advice of a friend which was to rid them forever. I was told to spit on my warts first thing every morning, as saliva I was told was poisonous. How gross, but I wanted rid and did as instructed. Then one morning low and behold - "no warts." I am not sure to this day was this purely coincidental, but who cares they disappeared.
Not everyone infected with HPV will see genital warts. Some will be infected with a strain that does not create warts, or they will stay asymptomatic (no warts appear) even though the virus is present or mucous membranes around the genital region or on the cervix. Warts can develop around the vulva or inside the vagina and on the cervix which can cause slight bleeding. Although rare, discharge can appear different. At any time, if a vaginal discharge shows change in texture, color or the mount you lose, seek medical attention.
Warts can cause itchiness. A regular question is, do warts hurt, not as a rule and are usually painless, however if pain is sensed it should always be checked out. If a friend offers advice and it involves you using unfamiliar treatments, ignore, even though they mean well they are not trained to diagnose, so remember this to stay healthy. Your GP is the only person you should be consulting with. If warts are suspected but not obvious to the eye, the doctor will help clarify this by applying a diluted vinegar-like solution to the infected area, this whitens the warts so they can be clearly viewed. As with any condition affecting the private parts it is not unusual to be given an internal examination of the vagina, cervix and/or anus.
Herpes simplex is an infectious viral infection. Sores appear on the face or round the genitals. Its symptoms are seen as cold sores on the mouth The infection is caused by either of two viruses, i.e. herpes simplex virus type 1 or herpes simplex virus type 2. The HSV-1 virus we connect to cold sores or fever blisters. The HSV-2 virus major of the two causes genital herpes. Both viruses are similar in look but differ in other ways. The difference shows up in the proteins on the outside of the viruses. Symptoms of herpes vary - severe or mild, so mild that it can develop unnoticed. Blister like sores is what to expect if diagnosis of genital herpes is made. These blisters are what commonly have us confuse ourselves as to what true vaginal pimples are. Herpes is not normally associated with vaginal discharge but the itchy symptom can be mistaken for a yeast infection. The immune system of a healthy person fights herpes but it cannot rid the infection.
If you are certain you have vaginal pimples, do not treat with aggression as the skin here is sensitive and tender. Be sensitive of your problem and treat tenderly.
Did you know when you treat your own vaginal infection you rid vaginal odour at the same time.
