painful spot near vagina!!Watch
Keep anon. Few days back I got a small spot near my vagina. it has now gone bigger full of liquid and painful when touched. I had the same one 2/3 weeks back but it went away but now I have another one . I'm not sexually active so hopefully not a STD. If its any relevant I live in a shared house which means which I have to share a toilet with strangers...Anyone ever had this or know what it may be? I don't want to go doctors if its nothing to worry about.
You can't catch anything like that from a toilet seat. I'm not sexually active and have had a similar thing appear on the skin around my vagina. It was a lump, about the same size as a large spot, which was underneath a few layers of skin and felt as though it was full of liquid. It was sore/itchy, but disappeared within a few days without treatment. I think I've had 3 in total, and they've all gone away. I've never had any other symptoms of anything and it can't be an STD for me, either. Does that sound like the same thing?
They are actually very common.
Best thing to do is see a doctor if they do not go away. They can be removed in a small surgical operation, depending on how painful and uncomfortable they are for you. a cyst is a build up of fluid in a particular area and a doctor can help you more with this. If they do disappear and keep coming back then please see a doctor as this could be a sign of something else, such as a deficiency.
