Hello, From your symptoms,it looks like a Bartholin's abscess or cyst. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholin’s glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a painless, hard swelling.In such cases, antibiotics may be helpful, or surgical treatment might be required.
Hello, You are correct because it can be a cyst or abscess in the perineal area. It does not look like Bartholin’s abscess. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholin’s glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form but they present on the vagina and not the groin. She needs incision and drainage and a course of oral antibiotics as soon as possible.
Thinking that it was an abscess I started using sitz baths, result of that was now I have like 8 more of the large painful lumps. They are on the Mons Pubis, Labia Majora and perineum. They are not abscesses as they have never developed a head nor drained at all. My concern is that my sister had Vulvar Cancer in 2000. Can this be a symptom of that? Especially with so many of the popping up in such a short period of time?
A surgeon did Incision and Drainage of the abscess lump on the left vulva next to vagina, which then progressed to a complex fistula.(A 2 cm long fistula.

Hello. Itching in your vulva area can be the result of an infection or irritation. Your boyfriend should not be responsible for buying you a cream. This is something you need to take care of yourself. Get to know your body and how to take care of it. I'm wondering if your lip has always been bigger than the other. If not, then it's possible you have an infection of the mucus gland or an abscess. If it's painful, see a gynecologist immediately, as this can be a serious condition if untreated.
This could be due to a Bartholin's cyst or abscess, sebacious cyst or a possible sexually transmitted disease.Hair follicles that have pulled out or the incidence of skin trauma may trigger the growth of sebaceous cysts. The presence of pubic hair in the vulva near the vagina would tend to result to vaginal lumps. Without infection, this usually goes away on its own.
Hi there! Where is this abscess located? Recurrent chronic difficult to heal ulcers are usually seen in a condition called hiradenitis suppurativa.Inflammation of the apocrine sweat gland bearing areas leads to painful and recurrent boils and abscesses. They are seen commonly in the armpit, groin, breasts, vulva, scrotum, perineum and the buttocks. Usually obese people are affected more. Recurrent abscesses are often caused by community-acquired methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus.

9 for both HSV 1 and 2 I'm still worried. March 22 I had an abscess near my perineum recur. It first appeared back in September but never ruptured, just went away after about a week. This time it ruptured and the doc put me on Bactrim. I had what I feel was an allergic reaction. Fever, rigors, rash etc. 2 days after my risk, wife and I have relations. Next day I had a little itch/feeling in my urethra. This prompted all the anxiety and testing. Came back clean so I went on with life.

Hello all I have had burning in my vulva and some minor swelling near the opening of my vagina on and off for 2.5 mths I always feel well not right down there... Sometimes I get sharp pains but mostly I just feel kinda irritated. No blisters no sores... I have been tested for everything the only thing that shows is my hsv 1 that I have had since I was a child.. Does this sound like herpes?
When it swells up, it's twice as big as it should be, no joke, and walking hurts because it is to large to be concealed undaer the vulva lips. it happens very rarely. i thought at firsthat the horseback riding and bouncing around in the saddle would irritate it, but not this much. There is next to impossible that i have an STD - the only guy i've had sex with was a virgin and we used a condom, so no STDs here, lol. so...has anyone had this before, even a minor case of it?
Hello, From your symptoms, it looks like Bartholin's abscess or cyst. Other possibilities are sebaceous cyst (accumulations of secretions that can occur anywhere on the skin or mucosal surfaces), lipoma (fatty deposits) ,fibroma (fibrous tissue deposits) or viral wart(small raised pimples to a mass of large, cauliflower-like growths. The virus that causes them is passed on during sex).
Let it open on its own, pushing/applying pressure can just make it more infected and cause it to abscess. If it's painful and lasts longer than a week or so, I would go to the doctor just to make sure!

A few months ago I noticed a lump under the skin on the right side of my vulva. It is not painful, not swollen or red and seems to be moveable under the skin. It is located right next to my clitoris and is an ovular shape about the size of an almond. You cannot see it but can feel it. I haven't found anything on the internet about this and I asked my doctor about it and she says it sounds like a cyst. However she did not look at it. If anybody has had this please let me know !
I'm in my mid 20s. Yesterday I found a lump on my upper right vulva: under pubic hair, about 1cm diameter. It's a little more pinkish and reddish than the surrounding skin. I can see skin peeling off he surface of the lump, but not seriously peeling. The lump is not hard and hurts a little when I press it. Most of the time, I feel ok.
A Bartholin's cyst is not an infection, although it can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage (mucus or other impediment) to the Bartholin's ducts (tubes which lead from the glands to the vulva). If infection sets in, the result is a Bartholin's abscess. If the infection is severe or repeated a surgical procedure known as marsupialization may be required to stop further recurrences." However, in your case, a folliculitis is be more likely. Source:http://en.
You need this checking out, It sounds to me like its an abcess in the vulva. When these get big they cause lots of pain. They usually have to cut these out if it is, so better to get checked now before it grows, and causes you a whole deal off unwanted pain.
Three distinct clinical stages have been defined for the condition. Stage 1 – solitary or multiple, isolated abscess formation without scarring or sinus tracts Stage 2 – recurrent abscesses, single or multiple widely separated lesions, with sinus tract formation Stage 3 – diffuse or broad involvement, with multiple interconnected sinus tracts and abscesses. Disease may spread to involve less commonly associated sites including the nape of the neck, waistband and inner thighs.
For the past couple of years I've had 3 surgeries because of a Bartholin's cyst with last March/April in 07 I had another surgery for a labia/vulva lip abscess which required surgery to relieve my discomfort. I've had my sexual partner for the past 1yr and a half and we use protection AT ALL TIMES. This past October I noticed that prior to my period or during my period I would get blood fill bumps around the area where I had surgery and no where else!
Hello, From your symptoms,it looks like a Bartholin's abscess or cyst. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholin’s glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a painless, hard swelling.In such cases, antibiotics may be helpful, or surgical treatment might be required.
The glands (normally the size of a pea) provide moisture for the vulva area. A Bartholin's gland cyst may form in the gland itself or in the duct draining the gland. A cyst normally does not cause pain, grows slowly, and may go away without treatment. It usually ranges in size from 0.4-1.2 in. (1-3 cm), although some may grow much larger. If infected, a Bartholin's gland cyst can form an abscess that will increase in size over several days and is very painful.
i also noticed a small red dot like on penis head initialy but now its gone, itching still remains. The itching problems is also ther with my GF, she feel itching around her vagina and vulva.
I thought that was odd but thought I must have cut myself with the toilet paper (my vulva skin gets delicate when I have a y.i.). The next day in the shower it hurt extremely bad when I washed it, it was swollen. I ended up passing out from the pain. My husband took me to the emergency room. The docor there tested me for several things. He did a visual inspection and said it was an abcsess that had ruptured. I asked him if he thought it was herpes, he actually laughed and said no.
My whole vulva is throbbing, not just the clitoris. This is so embarrassing. I can't find much online about it. I also am having trouble urinating. I am a 58 year-old female. I have to force myself to urinate. The urge is there, but I stop and start so many times at one sitting. I feel wierd putting this "out there" but I am desparate to stop the pain. I also have pain shooting down my left leg. I don't know if this has anything to do with it.
Here's my story: Last Saturday, valentines day out of all days....i had the same problem... swollen labia (all the swelling was external), i had a lot of pain towards the bottom esp on the left side, excess discharge (more than normal), and skin changes that turned red. I haven't had sex for almost 2 months. I had no clue what was going on so i soaked in a HOT bath for about 45 min to ease the swelling. Obviously it didn't work. So i went to the ER.
urinalysis, bloodwork, cotton swab culture(military standard treatment) the results were negative, but the discomfort persisted. I was refferred to a urologist. The urologist saw nothing unusual. I had a cystoscopy and prostrate exam (digit) performed. Again nothing unusual. because of this no medication was perscribed. I was told to let him know if something changed. The discomfort continued. However, after the cystoscopy there was some relief.
The specialist has put me on a neurotransmitter medicine because she thinks the nerve endings in my vulva are misfiring, which sounds far fetched to me but at this point I'll try anything! Is anyone else having similar issues??
