Itchy bump near vagina
Posted on: 02/05/2008
I have a bump on my vagina that resembles a mosquito bite, and itches like a mosquito bite as well. There are no mosquitoes around though (since it is the middle of winter), and I have had the bump for several weeks. I am sexually active but have had only one partner (who has also had only one partner: me), so STDs are unlikely. Should I see a medical professional?
I would give it a week to go away by itself, unless it grows or you do not feel well. If it gets worse or does not go away, get it looked at. Good luck!
