we bite (foreverthursday) wrote in vaginapagina,@ 2007–10–23 02:28:00boils, down there?hey everyone, thanks in advancefirst off, in the past eight or so months i have been tested for STDs twice (three times?), simply out of my paranoia and fear of STDs. the guy i have been seeing (my only partner since feb.) for that period of time has never been tested (is going next week), but has definitely had sex with a handful of ladies and we do not use a condom (i am on bc) — hence my paranoia. all of the tests were negative – i had bloodwork, cultures, and a pap done. i’m hoping i’m right in thinking those tests cover most if not all stds, including hpv and herpes – yeah?okay, so, one reason i had the second test done was because i had found some pimple-like bumps on my lips (outer) and in my pubic hair, and one to the side, a little in from the bikini line (one in each place). they seemed like pimples but i didnt know – i cant recall having any pimples down there before. they started to swell, got red, got to the white head phase, i popped them, lil bit of pus came out, they scabbed over and went away. by the time i got into the gyn, they were almost gone – and the doc said they were just pimples/ingrown hairs. as i said, i was tested and nothing came back positive.but now, they’re back. i have one on my outer lip, with a little undeveloped bump next to it. it had a white head yesterday (like the fourth day ive had it?), and i let it be to avoid infection. the white head went away and now it’s more swollen, a little painful to touch, and red. the other two, one near the bikini line (a lot smaller, i popped it when it got white, and is now smaller and a little red, like a popped zit) and where my pubic hair is (this one went away, came back, went away, and is now coming back). they are mostly in the same place as they were before.the two above seem to be pimples (right?), but this one on my outer lip sort of looks like a boil. i had never had a boil in my life until about four months ago when i developed one on the back of my thigh. it was there and painful for about a month, then sort of popped and scabbed, and i now have a purple mark where it was. this bump on my labia sort of looks like that – but i don’t know. do women get boils on their vags?so, main questions (i had to write that out):if, after being tested twice in 8 or so months, the whole time having condom-less sex with an untested partner (just him that whole time), and recieving only neg test results – is there any way these bumps are an STD?do women get boils on their vaginas? if so, why, and how can you avoid them coming back? or take care of them?am i having vaginal acne with these other bumps, or what?okay, gotta put my mind at ease. can’t do it til after boyfriend test results come back (oh, the fear of sexually transmitted disease), but am trying anyways.thank you!
