Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Sexually Transmitted Diseases


Hello! I'm quite worried because since few days ago I notice an itch in the vagina and labia. Today I took a mirror and I'm not sure if the things I see are normal... There are kind of white bumps at the entrance (also look like I don't know, broken?) and I see the labia too red. Well I think it's better with a picture... I have sexual relationships but always with protection

Thank you so much!


Itching doesn't indicate STI's per say, but could indicate just vaginal dryness and the white spot could indicate keratinized lesion associated with dry skin or even minor dysplasia and that's something you should discuss with your OBGYN. I would make an appointment to get it checked out just to be sure. I'm happy that you've been using protection because that's significantly assured your chances that none of this has anything to do with STI's at all and something else.

Best wishes,


Sexually Transmitted Diseases
