  • white bump look like a pimple down in my pelvic area it really hurts

    Hi my name is Jill,
    I have so many female issue going on right now with my period. When I was taking a bath I felt something hurting me It kind of look like a pimple it just above where I unrinate and it really does hurt. Does any one have or had something like this before. At first I though it was some toilet paper stuck to my skin but it not. I have a per-op physical next month for Laparoscopy surgery. I don't know if I should have it check out sooner or wait until then. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If any one can it would be helpful to me thanks Jill

  • Hi jacolss.

    If the bump is where your pubic hair is, it might be a blocked hair folicle or a cyst of some kind. I've had Bartholin cysts a few times: usually a hard, round bump (like a pea) just outside of the vaginal opening, usually on a lip; sometimes painful, sometimes not. In my case they usually go away on their own. But I think you should call your doctor asap. He/she my want to examine you just to make sure that it's not something that will affect your upcoming surgery.

        • hey jacloss,
          well i didn't go to a doc for it i showed my mother it(embarresing) i was in my 20's at the time. what i did is i just let it heal up on it's own. i never had another one since. if it is causing alot of pain you might want to see your gyno for it.

          • You could try a hot compress on it (well, not too hot if it is inside the vaginal lips) - just a wet warm washcloth, keep soaking and reapplying - if it is a pimple or ingrown hair, it may open and clear out on its own. If it doesn't go away, or of course if you are in pain, call your gyn.

            • good advice from ladylane... sounds like it would help soothe it.

              • I had sort of the same thing. On my inner labia there was a bump but there was no 'head' to it, it felt like a really really big pimple - the kind that you can't pop because they are still under the surface. I had never had any sexual relations with anyone before so I wasn't worried that it was a disease so I just waited a few days and then it finally had a head. Hair does not grow where mine was so I don't think it was an ingrown hair but I'm thinking it might have been a little cyst. Mine eventually popped (after a little picking at it) and it went away. It was very gross. Maybe it's the same thing? Mine was painful but tolerable. I hope it goes away soon.

                • I agree with the other poster. Use a warm compress and allow it to come to a head. It will pop, and the pain will go away quickly.

                  • i have a bartholin cyst that keeps coming back but the fist time that i got it. mine looked like a pimple. But i would call you doc as soon as you can because if it becomes infected it can led to a staph infection and a almost always fatal infection call sepsis. i really would talk to your doc. and if anyone can help me with my problem i would greatly appericate it. i have a bartholin cyst and i am on a blood thinner so i cant have it drained and i am in a lot of pain so what should i do to help with the pain. if i go to the doc and have it drained there is ahuge risk that i could bleed to death. so i really need help.
