For a lot of women vaginal pimples and acne bumps are common conditions that occur in the external vaginal anatomy. I have frequent flare ups of genital pimples, acne and bumps on the butt cheeks, inner thighs and at the bottom of the vagina opening (labia).
Just like pimples on the face, back or shoulders, they can be in the form of blackheads, whiteheads or pimples and acne filled with pus. As the vaginal area is very sensitive and tender, genital pimples and acne bumps are extremely painful and can be very uncomfortable when sitting down.
My frequent outbreaks of pimples, acne and bumps at the opening of the vagina (vulva) have led me on a quest to its causes, prevention and treatment, notably home remedies.
From my research and experience most vagina pimples, acne and bumps are not dangerous or contagious. If you are on a mutually monogamous relationship they are seldom STD related.
My outbreaks of genital pimples and bumps usually heal within 4-6 days. But if you have flare ups that last more than 10 days and they get progressively worse, I advise that you see a doctor to rule out that they are not genital warts.

Over the counter topical acne treatments might be too harsh for the sensitive vaginal area. Apart from cleansing with my other favorite herbal wash, I hasten the healing with:-
By being vigilant in my vaginal helath and following the above herbal treatments, I managed to lengthen the interval between each vaginal pimples outbreak. And the inflammation and pain subside within a week.Back to top
