How Do I Get Rid Of Painful, Pimple-Like Bumps Down There?

If you have painful, pimple-like bumps down there, how are you supposed to get rid of them?

ChickRX expert Evelyn Resh, Certified Sexuality Counselor and Nurse Midwife, says: 

These pimple-like bumps that you’re referring to are exactly that – pimples. I see them in women’s vulvas frequently. Some women are more prone to them than others. Sometimes, they are cyclic and may occur right before your period. Rest assured, they’re completely normal.

How are you supposed to get rid of them? I recommend soaking in a slightly hot bath with your legs apart so that the hot water can be directly against the skin. Stay in there for about 15 minutes a couple of times each day when the pimples are there. If you don’t have a bathtub, you can use a very warm compress, like a wash cloth, soaked in water.

If the pimples are easy to pop, then fine, go ahead. But don’t force them until they come to a head and easily open with just flight pressure. If they enlarge or are really painful, head in to see a practitioner, as you may need an antibiotic. If they’re staying essentially the same size and come and go with this management, then don’t worry about them. They are a nuisance, but don’t generally require medical management.

Always  make sure to wash your hands well whenever touching these pimples to avoid secondary infection.

    Ma vagine lips both i have pimples and thy vry sore what do i do n am nt sexual active

  2. avatarmegatron says:

    Helpful hint. Use conditioner instead of shaving creams and shave in downward strokes u will less likely get ingrown hairs and I stopped having bad/almost any bumps once I started doing this. ALSO I use olay face wash when cleaning, cleans deeper and better than any body wash (: hope this helps some ladies (: source: 22.female

    I recently discovered a bump on both lips. They are very painful and I am still a Virgin. They appeared just before my period but this is unusual for me. I believe that I had a small razor cut on one of my lips and it has caused one of my bumps. I don’t know what to do….

    I have this bump on my right vagina lip and when I popped it
    It was bleeding and I’m not sexual active and I wanna kno wat it is

    • avatarCaroline says:

      It’s completely normal. You don’t have to be sexually active to get them. They can be razor bumps, ingrown hairs, or simply pimples. Everyone gets them and like the article said you are most likely to get them before your period. Now, if it something that does not go away, hurts, painfully itchy, then maybe you should get checked out. But, if you’re not sexually active then you shouldn’t be worried. It’s like every pimple, if you pop it sometimes it will bleed. Make sure to keep it clean, soak it if you can, and try not to wear too tight clothing around that area because sometimes your vaginal area needs to breathe, especially if you shave your bikini area or down there. Hope this helps!

  8. avatarShavet says:

    Well best thing to go is keep that area dry… Try not to get heated or horny and wet….. Soak in hot water fifteen minutes a day to have the beautiful smooth pornstar vagina you desire

  9. avatarBella says:

    I get these and there so painful I keep telling my boyfriend I’m on my period so he won’t go down there because I’m too ashamed I hate it tho as he seems to be getting funny now I just need to know what to do fast..

    • avatarsammy says:

      Me too. I got them before I became sexually activeand before i started shaving and I’m afraid of wht my boyfriend is going to say he’s probably going to think I have an STD

  10. avatarDajah says:

    Yes,finally somebody tells me this. I thought I was getting them because I was doing something wrong. I get them after my period and then they just stick around. I pop them and get embarrassed. If they don’t go away I can never have sex.

  11. avatarella says:

    Some of these “pimples” could be bumps from shaving if its that, then you’ve probably been dry shaving and you need to use body wash before shaving and don’t wash it off until you’ve shaved or you can use shaving cream either one works.

  12. avatarJessie says:

    Oh thank God they are normal I get these all the time and I thought there was something wrong with my V.

  13. avatarJenna Marbles says:

    I had one of these and I panicked and popped it. I didn’t wash my hands but had a shower before hand. will I still get an infection?

  14. avatarnicole says:

    I have the same problem! I am still a virgin, but get these pimple like bumps down there. I am not sexually active in any way, so I am positive it isn’t a sexually transmitted disease. I just don’t know what to do…i do not plan on having sex anytime soon because of them. It’s just so embarrassing. Please help.?
