I have some red bumps around my labia and bikini line area,

Customer Question

I have some red bumps around my labia and bikini line area, I thought it may be a heat rash or from shaving so have kept an eye on it few days, it seems to be calming down but I want to know if it could be something serious? I am having unprotected sex but with the same partner and he doesn't have any symptoms, I haven't had sex since I found these bumps, also because I have my period, any advice is greatly appreciated

Dr. C. :

and welcome to the site. My name is***** and I'll be providing your medical information today.

Dr. C. :

It would be helpful if you could upload a photograph of the area using the paperclip icon on your screen.

Dr. C. :

If there's no paperclip, check an "options" tab or similar wording.

Dr. C. :

You're right, it probably is just irritated skin follicles from shaving but having a look would be very helpful.
