Bumps/rash near vagina
Posted on: 11/06/2007
Since I was younger (4-6) till now (15 almost 16), i've had a reaaallly dark rash on my vagina. as i get older it gets bigger, now it's on the side of my thighs. sometimes i will get little black bumps under the skin the size of a piece of lead broken off a wooden pencil. when i try to squeeze them out, a little black ball comes out with a white slimy tail. Sometimes large bumps will occur that are fleshy. when i touch them they hurt, and when i go through the torture of trying to squeeze them open, puss, clear liquid and a little blood come out. when I wear fitted pants the big bumps hurt me. I've been keeping really clean recently and the bumps kinda stopped. i just want to know if there's anyway to get rid of the extremely black skin around my vagina and on my thighs because it gets bigger and bigger.
On the question page we say we cannot answer questions about bumps because a doctor really needs to see something like you describe to know if it is fungal, bacterial, etc... And decide how to treat it. Please make an appointment and have your doctor take a look at this. Good luck!
