Yeast Infections Can Cause Bumps or Lumps On the Vagina
Posted Sep 24 2010 6:16pm
You look down there one day and there IT is. A bump or many bumps on your vagina. Some sort of new growth out of a horror movie. You have no idea how it got there, your sure you didn't sleep with tooooo many partners. You panick you think you have an STD.
Fear not dear ones. This could just be a sign of a yeast infection. You can develop lumps and bumps that may look like herpes from a yeast infection, at first glance.
I will go over signs of a yeast infection versus a herpes infection.
Signs that it is Herpes
Often more than one bump, usually in clumps together
Open and sore lesions
They come and go
Usually get worse over time, and spread
Usually cauliflower shaped and small
Itches and burns
Not usually any discharges, (white pus)
Signs it is yeast
Whole vaginal area itches as well as the bump
Seems to have pus inside
Injestion of sugar makes it itchier
Vaginal area burns
May have rashes along with bumps
Not eating sugar makes itching stop
White coating on tongue
Usually only goes away once yeast is cleared up
Stays there and may not get worse or better, herpes usually gets worse
White discharge in the vagina
What you can do is put grapeseed extract on the bumps and monitor the condition over time. Yeast is a fungus and grapeseed extract is antifungal. Then you do an internal yeast cleanse. If your doctor doesn't know what it is, and it isn't an STD, than it may be a yeast infection.
