Get Rid of Hair Bumps!

Vaginal Hair Bumps – Herpes and Genital Warts

Okay, Girlfriend. Let’s talk about vaginal hair bumps. If you’re reading this, you might be concerned, so let’s get down to it. Here’s a few basic facts about two of the most common STDs: genital herpes and genital warts.

What does genital herpes look and feel like?

Here’s what the National Institutes for Health (NIH) tell us (1):

– it sometimes starts with a tingling and/or burning sensation in the genital area, buttocks, or legs.

– it causes open sores and/or painful blisters in the genital area.

– the sores usually disappear within 2 or 3 weeks, but they often come back. Once the virus is in our body, we’ll always have it.

– medicine can be used to help control the sores/blisters from showing up, but we’ll still have the virus.

Now, on to our second vaginal hair bumps topic: genital warts. Again, this information is provided by the NIH(1).

– genital warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). It’s in the same family as the virus that causes skin warts.

– they often start as painless, hard, small bumps in the vaginal area, around the anus, or on the penis.

– if they’re not treated, they can grow. They look kind of like caulifower.

– certain HPV viruses can cause cancer–including cancer of the cervix.

– there is a vaccine available that can help protect women from HPV viruses.

– some genital warts can be treated with medicine that’s applied to the skin. Some can be “frozen” and removed, using special medical equipment. Surgery is sometimes used to remove genital warts, too.

Okay, here’s the thing. Unfortunately, STDs are common. And for some of these viruses, people don’t make a big deal out of them.

But as for you…

You are NOT common.

There’s only one YOU. You’re rare, and you’re valuable. And we know we aren’t your mom…but you get our point. You are worth taking care of. If you think your vaginal hair bumps might be related to an STD, be good to yourself and have a health care professional assess you.

There can be serious complications to STDs, and that’s one big reason it’s important that you see your health care provider. Expect to be treated with respect and dignity, and be up front with them about what you’re feeling.

Also, it would be great if we all looked out for each other all the time, but as we know, that’s not how this world works. These viruses are contagious. That means anyone who has them can spread them. Enough said.

If you think your vaginal hair bumps might be caused by an STD, know that there is help available. You’re worth taking care of.
