Itchiness around private parts

I’m a woman in my late 20s. For the past 2-3 months I’ve been experiencing intense itchiness around my private parts. The itch flares up every time after showers and washes, and gradually calms down afterwards. I’m a virgin, and I haven’t made changes to my bathing products, detergent or clothes. When I touch my pubic area I can feel small bumps and roughness, but when I look there doesn’t seem to be any wounds or rashes. However since last week a lump showed up on the top part of the vulva. The lump swelled over a few days, and is painful and about the size of a pea. It feels irregular in shape and slightly malleable. No unusual discharge for the past 2-3 months. Would like an advice on these problems, thank you.

Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, I completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information the symptoms you are experiencing can be due to several factors such as:

  • Fungal infection such as candidiasis
  • Bacterial vaginosis due to over-cleaning the vaginal area
  • HPV infection
  • Genital herpes infection
  • Skin condition such as eczema or lichen planus

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.
