Ask a Gynaecologist and Get Answers to Your OB/GYN Questions ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Can I please ask which symptoms you have and if you have been tested?
Have you had unprotected sexual intercourse?
And do you have any pain, soreness, bleeding, discharge, bad smell, other pains, fever, vomiting, etc?
What about any bad smell/odour?
Your symptoms could be due to bacterial vaginosis or vaginal thrush.
So, you can try over the counter Canesten Combi pessary/cream (or Monistat) which should clear it. You only use this cream/pessary once.
Canescool can soothe the area and help with burning, irritation and swelling.
If this doesn't work at all, you should see your doctor for further assessment and consider STD testing including for bacterial vaginosis.
You can send a picture of the rash only if you wish.
It is difficult to tell if these are herpes spots. Sometimes women can get similar bumps and they are completely benign. The other possibility is HPV spots which can be similar.
The only way to confirm the exact cause is by having a test.
