First time i had a pimple-like bump on the upper side of vulva, in my teenage years many years ago. At that time i thought it was infection. But recently i have and ulcer at the vulva area. Is it an STI although i practiced safe sex using condom? Or is it just another infection?

Based on your description, the bump and ulcer on your vulva area can be due to several reasons such as:

  • Genital Herpes infection by herpes simplex (a virus that cause cold and ulcer on the mouth as well)
  • Syphilis - the ulcers are typically not painful but treatment should be sought immediately if you have practiced sexual intercourse with multiple partner
  • Viral wart - caused by HPV virus which also got from sexual intercourse
  • Skin disease like eczema or lichen planus
