Nobody talks about vaginal blisters. Your friend won’t mention them when she comes over your house for a cup of coffee. Nor your mum will talk about them when you go shopping together. Your sister-in –low won’t surely talk about vulvar blisters at the anniversary dinner. Actually no one is talking about vaginal blisters as almost everyone is embarrassed by this kind of topics. Maybe someone will give you the answer if you ask directly but even then you may not get the answer you need.
You can find the answer in this article and you must know that some blisters are actually – just blisters. Vaginal blisters are nothing serious and alarming and above all you shouldn’t be ashamed.
Who Gets Them?
Anyone with vagina can get them! They are not transmitted only by sexual active people, nor if you maintain improper vaginal hygiene. They usually appear due to: ingrown hairs, friction and clogged sweat glands.
What Do They Look Like?
Vaginal blister doesn’t t look like typical STD blister or bump. It is very similar with any other blister which contains blood or fluid. They may be circular or ovular and if you touch them they may feel like gel bubbles. They may have clear color or may be very dark in the center due to the blood inside them. But they shouldn’t have visible border nor should be itchy, burning or have bad odor. A single blister usually appears not a group of blisters like when Herpes appears.
Do They Hurt?
Vaginal blisters appear anywhere on the vulva and are usually unnoticeable until some friction occurs. They are not painful as bee sting for example, but if you touch them they are sensitive to touch and slightly painful. If it appears, for example, on the inner labia you won’t even notice it until you feel slight pain when you dry yourself with a towel after showering. Consequently other direct contact can cause pain as well, but if you don’t touch it, it shouldn’t be painful.
How Do You Treat It?
The best treatment is taking a hot bath. You can also try sitz bath or other types of special treatments but they have the same effect. The hot bath helps them to rupture naturally and painlessly. Do not squeeze them because they can be infected. Just leave them to heal naturally.
How Long Do They Last?
They usually last less than a week but every organism is different so sometimes they may need a few more days to heel.
