hi, I've recently developed these weird white skin tag looking bumps around and slightly in my vagina. I also have a rough feeling white cluster just above and to the left of the entrance to my vagina. Please can you diagnose what this could be? I'm too embarrassed to go to my gp. Ps sorry about the weird angles it's a hard place to photograph.


That cluster of extra skin could be an indication of HPV or just benign cell growth, but only a pap smear plus a visual exam can really diagnose that. If you are at least 21, then you are at the age where you should be getting a pap smear every 3 years to check for potential problems like this including cancer. I would recommend making an appointment with your OBGYN specialist since this is certainly new growth within your vagina. If you need follow up let me know.
