    Hi im 24 years old. Never been sexually active. Im slightly overweight so started going to the gym everyday. I seemed to have a developed a spot on my left labia minora and it is also swollen. I reckon it swelled up and then the spot developed from chafing. The spot looks like a regular spot. Its very painful and i cant walk or sit its so painful. What could it be? What is the reason? And what is the solution? Im quite worried that it could be something serious.

    Mostly likely its a cyst. I get the annoying painful little things quite frequently. Some are nice and stay small and some go evil on you and cause a massive swelling. Freaky but usually not serious. You can get them from having to tight of clothing or fold of skin gets pinched and fills up with squished fluid from your cells, or a little nick from shaving or a little bit to much skin came off when waxing has gotten you if you keep it trim down there has let in some bacteria and the abrasion or hole has closed up trapping the infection. For the most part try soaking in a very warm bath filled with Epsom salts for 15 minutes and applying as hot a moist compress as your labia will allow for 15 minutes every few hours. I also usually add some antibiotic cream to kill any germs down there and eventually it SHOULD "pop" on its own. If its a cyst, if not well at least you got some soothing bath time, can take up to a week of this, I usually get about 3 days before mine will pop on their own, bath soaks morning and night and hot compresses as much in the day as I can if I'm not working. If I'm working all I get are the hot baths. Do NOT attempt to stab it even with a sterile needle on your own.I know its tempting but really don't do it, staph infections are NOT fun and a real possibility if you try that method. Once it pops you can GENTLY from the very outer edges press down and move towards the "head"(or hole now where all the gross stuff is leaving you) expect blood,puss, clear liquid, stuff the constancy of cottage cheese, one or all of them is possible. For cysts you can also go to the Dr, but I personally having just experienced this method yesterday...do not recommend, at least not for lancing or removal. First they poke and prod you where it hurts, then they use a needle and do a local on you, then they wait a few minutes lance you with a sterile needle they squish out all the nasty infection. 24 hrs later my labia is more swollen then it was yesterday, more painful and having discovered the joy of them packing idoform gauze in the former cyst cavity to be painful, which is contributing to my inflamed swollen labia, and better yet I have a hole in me that isn't being allowed to close quickly(and yes there are good reasons for a slow heal from inside out which is what this method does) but mine is far enough back that urination is currently pure agony. I'm reduced to tears at the mere THOUGHT of having to urninate...I suffer from thunderclap migraines that no drugs touch the pain not even Oxicontin. I've been kicked in the leg by a horse with iron shoes, I've had my kneecap end up on the BACK of my leg...none of this compares, and yes I shrieked like the proverbial girl that I am, and the little one I once was. I have had cysts in that area before, that popped on their own(not quite that large but still a respectable size) and never experienced pain like this after I had done all the squish out all the gross stuff then a rinse with water and spraying of a antibiotic and slathering on a antibiotic cream. Not trying to scare you or be a TMI or to gross, but I seriously wish some forum somewhere had had the after the DR stabs you with a needle part... Make an informed decision, try the least invasive first and then step up if that isn't working. I'm not saying the Dr route is a bad one, in fact until the local wore off I actually felt pretty darn good with all that infection outta me, then reality hit. Yes its dang hard to sit with a cyst down there, or one that's now gone till it heals up, much less any other problem down there that will cause pain and swelling of the labia. In the end, do what's best for you, if you're really freaked go see a DR and let them put your mind at ease.

    they are just ingrown hairs, yu get them on your legs as well but tend not to notice them, try only shave every few days letting the hair grow a little to help prevent all the new hairs getting stuck under the skin. the redness and soreness is just the hair trying to break through but if they cant they can turn into spots. Try shaving once a week and see if it help over time yu can start shaving more if the redness decreases. Guys don't shave and shouldnt make you feel like you have to shave all the time just make sure your both comfortable in your ow skins.

    I'm 18 and I'm sexually active with my boyfriend. We have only had sex with other other so STI's are out of the question right? I noticed a raised spot on my valva. It can be itchy and it's painful to touch. It doesn't look like a wart, just a normally spot. I'm unsure of anything comes out of it as it always looks clean but with a red spot so it could bleed a little. I've had it about over a week now and just worried of what it could be?

    I had, what looked like a blackhead, on my penis and I squeezed it so that the puss came out, but a later it had sort of sprouted into a huge and painful spot, I've used sudocrem on it to reduce the pain and it's worked, but now it's scab has fell off and I want to know if it will scar my penis? and also I would like to know if the spot will ever go? There is no pain now but just the spot and yes I am a virgin and that is why I am panicking :( Sorry for being so vivid with the description as it was the only way I could describe it... Thank you!

    I am 29 and when i was around 16 years old i found a boil like spot in my grion area, it was really painful, after time cleared up on its own but it did leave a scar. In my 20's i started to have these boil like spots under my arms. Again very painful but would be only one or two at a time and would develop every few months. I have recently developed the same boil like spot in my grion, in the same place as when i was 16. Reading the comments above makes me think that i could have this HS but not as sereve as some. Could this be the case?

    it does sound like mild HS, Sometimes i can go for a few weeks without any at all which some others may see that as mild but i'm sure you'l agree that they're uncomfortable and basically a nuisance, i would certainly suggest that you see your GP. Hope this helps, good luck.

    I have a few issues with my vagina. I have loads of loose skin inside my vagina, like right inside about an inch in. It's not painful or anything, just looks very strange. I also have a small white spot around that area, which is painful if I squeeze it but doesn't do anything else. Sex is normal, but if I put my fingers inside the walls of my vagina feel quite rough, lubricated but a rough texture. Also, by my clitoris is a small black mole-like spot, about half a centimetre circumference. Can anyone help me with these problems? If it was just one or two, it would be okay but all of this is really getting my confidence down, especially about sex.

    I think you should check it! I just went to the doctor today (happens to be a family friend) because I've been feeling pain & tenderness on my left breast and she examined my breast and spotted one particular spot that is quite painful. The thing is since that spot is particularly deep, I just thought that the pain came from my whole left breast instead of one spot. I got prescribed antibiotics (it might be because of infection) and am due to return in 5 days. Hope yours turn out to be a better case than mine though :-)

    I found a spot under my arm a while ago and it went away after a few months, but it didnt hurt. This time i found another spot which i find very painful. I think it is the same as before. I am worried but am too scared to go to the doctor.

    Hi, I have a reoccuring spot between my vagina and anal passage. It is definitely not genital warts as it comes up as a boil. It is painful whilst appearing but once squeezed like a pimple is fine. There is no scarring after and the pain disappears. I have checked this with a clinic who say this is just a spot. How do I stop it from reoccurring.

    for just over a week I have had a small pimple on the inside edge of my right labia majora. it feels like a spot and is getting sore as a spot does, it looks like it may have a head to it not sure and is very irritating at the moment I'm not sure if this is because I have my period. at first I thought it was a spot or hair follicle, I'm getting worried now - is it likely to just be a spot?

    Guys, try not to worry too much. Sometimes a spot can just be a spot. Your penis has skin on it at the end of the day. However, I do suggest having everything you're not sure about checked, especially if you've had unprotected sex. I went to the doctors with a spot on my penis - it was just a spot. GUM Checks aren't pleasant, but it takes a massive weight off your shoulders.

    I have a dark spot on my penis but I can only see t when I pull back on the foreskin. I am sexually active but have been in the same relationship for the past eight months. I got this spot recently and it hurts. The pain seem to go away but never fully does. Also, when I have sexual intercourse the spot hurts more after sex. I was wondering what I can do to get rid of the spot.
