Vaginal pimple pictures – Are you worried because you have noticed or felt what seems to be a pimple or boil in the genital area? Or are you more in a panic because you think it’s a genital wart? Stop right there. There’s no need to get your knickers in a twist because whichever it is, it’s treatable. Vaginal acne isn’t something unique to one woman alone, so you haven’t been singled out if that’s what you’re thinking. Vaginal acne is as common as the facial type, and something nearly every woman at some time will suffer, whether it’s a spot on the face or a pimple or two on the vagina.
Pictures of vaginal acne will likely include pimples, spots, boils, lumps, warts and bumps. And while looking at photos is a good way to tell the difference between a genital wart and vaginal boil etc, it is not something you should rely on for a definite diagnosis. Vagina lumps are more times nothing to worry about, but because lumps are a primary symptom of certain cancers, it is dangerous to have photos confirm a condition. Ignore what you see in pictures and do the sensible by letting a doctor tell you what the problem is..
Genital acne is often treated at home successfully, that is providing it is straight forward acne without infection. Infected acne will need antibiotics to clear the infection, as this applies for genital warts too.
What do vaginal pimples look like: They are red raised bumps resembling those found on the chest, neck, shoulders, face or back. A pimple that pops underneath the skin releasing bacteria to local tissues is called a ‘papule’. If it goes deeper it becomes a ‘pustule’ – deeper again you have a cyst. Unlike pimples, cysts are more challenging and treatment possibly more complicated. Depending on what type of cyst it is and its reason for developing on the vagina or wherever, consult a doctor. It’s silly to use photos to identify any type of vaginal abnormality hoping it’ll confirm your suspicions.
What do vaginal cysts look like: Vaginal cysts are round lumps under the skin not known to cause pain, but a cyst is a cyst at the end of the day, so no guarantee discomfort won’t happen. These cysts are best described as small sacs (closed pockets of tissue ) which can contain fluid, pus, or other material. They’re often the outcome of trauma to the vagina or when a gland or duct is clogged. Cysts are non-cancerous and can be the size of a penny or grow to a frightening golf ball size. Cysts don’t have a specific area on the body they appear, they can happen in most places.
Epidermoid cysts, also called sebaceous cysts, are benign and usually the outcome of blocked oil glands. Epidermoid cysts can form on the torso, back and other places, but definitely a common genital cyst.
What do vaginal warts look like: The norm for warts is coming in groups, or singly. They are raised from the skin and coloured pink or white. Warts are caused by an infection of the herpes virus. Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease and passed onto another even if the infected person does not have a current outbreak. There’s no difference between genital warts and vaginal warts because they are in fact the same thing. Warts that develop on the vagina are much like those you get on the hand, but can be smaller. Some are that small it’ll be a struggle to spot them, so now you rely on touch to detect them – especially if in among pubic hair.
What do razor bumps look like: You could say these are the aftermath of shaving. They are raised, swollen, pus-filled, bumps which only appear in areas that is continually shaved over and over, such as the legs, face, underarms and around the genitals. Bumps can differ from single, pimple-like bumps to widespread rashes. Often sore and itchy too. Depending how badly the skin is affected a burning feeling is common. Untreated razor bumps can lead to keloidal scarring.
While most disorders that include vaginal lumps or bumps on the vagina are harmless, is it worth taking the risk if it is something serious all because a picture shows otherwise.
