The 8 Most (and Least) Likely Reasons You Have a Bump Near Your Vagina
Vaginal pimples may be just what they sound like: pimples that appear on or around the vulva. The vulva consists of the external parts of the female genitalia. The vagina is the internal canal. However, people often refer to the entire female genitalia as the vagina. True vaginal pimples are formed when dirt, sweat, and or bacteria build up inside a pore, causing inflammation.
Vagina pimples are similar to zits or spots. They can be identical to the kind of pimples you may have had on your face. The lesions are small and rounded. There may be a cluster of vaginal pimples or just a lone one somewhere in the area. You may have a few scattered across the vaginal area instead of the pimples forming a cluster.
