hey ok well lately i've been itching down there and i'll get a couple bumps. they are there for a while and then go away and other ones come up later. i'm not really sexually active but my b/f has fingered me a couple times i dunno if that has anything to do with it but just in case. i really need to know if anyone else has had this problem or if anyone has any ideas what it is and if there is a way to treat it...thanks!
Vikki27 answered Friday November 24 2006, 6:44 pm: Is the itch inside or on the outside? If it is on the inside, it could well be thrush, which can be easily treated with an oral tablet or a cream. If you go to your local pharmacy, they will be able to provide either one of these. Normally thrush is accompanied with a discharge that is yellow in colour and has a yeasty odour.
If it is on the outside, as someone has already said, it could be that your boyfriend has just irritated the skin. If you have had the symptoms for a week or longer, you will need to see your doctor to make sure there is no infection there, as you may need antibiotics.
If you don't think it could be either of these, please bear in mind that if anything changes in your reproductive system anywhere, you should ALWAYS see a doctor about it, just to be on the safe side. [ Vikki27's advice column | Ask Vikki27 A Question ]

It could be your b/f's hand wasn't entirely clean or that he damaged your skin with his nails that makes your vagina irritated, but that should fade away in a few days.
Other possibility is that you shave your vagina. That can irritate the skin, which results in small bumps and itch, to do something about this, use new razors every time and use an antiseptic meant for that area after shaving. It doesn't work all the time, as both shaving and antiseptics are something your skin needs getting used to. [ Raeden's advice column | Ask Raeden A Question ]
