I have gone through your image (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It seems like it is a vaginal or vulvar cyst which is caused by bacterial or viral infection and can be treated with a simple course of antibiotics. Please get yourself checked by a gynecologist internally and get a vaginal swab test done to rule out the exact cause. There is nothing to worry about. Just try the following:
Avoid having sex till then.
Wear cotton panties and loose pants.
Maintain personal hygiene and take plenty of fluids.
Wash your private parts with normal tap water every time you use the washroom.
Avoid using vaginal douches and creams.
Do get back to me with the reports so that I can guide you further. Take care.
Thank you for answering in such a short time.
I am sick and worried. Pap smear and other swab tests were done and everything was negative. I am worried because the other gynecologist told me it is genital warts. I have been with my partner for over two years. Both of us were virgins when we met and we are loyal to each other. Both of us tested for STDs and it was negative in both the cases. Do you think it is a kind of STD? Ease my mind, please.
It is definitely not warts because a swab test is confirmatory for warts. Once the swab or biopsy shows that there is no viral infection, then there is nothing to worry about. This could be a simple vulval or vaginal cyst, which could be because of local allergic reactions or friction. Change your soap. Follow the tips I gave earlier. Just try these simple remedies at home and if things do not settle down, then meet your dermatologist. However, if you have a doubt then get back to me. Take care.
