Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Bumps on vagina


Hello, I have had these bumps on my vagina and they have been worrying my. They are very small but look big on the picture. I have finally went to the doctor and was told that they could be hpv but was not given a for sure answer. I am very worried. Could it be something else like vestibular papillae?


You can do an in-home test to see if they are HPV. Use a couple drops of white vinegar and dab it on those bumps, if they turn white, then yes they are either pre-cancerous tissue or viral tissue and need to be removed because your doctor was right and they don't belong there. However, if they stay that pinkish color, then its normal tissue and it can stay there if you want it to. A lot of people choose to have their skin tags merely removed just as a cosmetic concern. Get back to me once you've tried the vinegar test!
