I have some longish bumps on the outer part of my vaginal lips - against my inner thighs. I think they may be from shaving because I got one when I was pregnant. It was like an ingrown hair that just never went away and got worse. Now, months later, I have more. I shave there about once a week - They dont itch or hurt or anything - I can just feel them when I touch them. If anyone has had this before, or knows what it is, Id like to hear. Thank you!

  • They are probably ingrown hairs. There is a product called Bikini zone (buy at Walgreens) that you apply after shaving for a few days to prevent the hairs from getting ingrown. You can always have a Dr look at these bumps to see they are indeed ingrown hairs and not something more serious.

  • I agree if it comes and goes its probably an ingrown hair but if it stays for a while get a checkup with your ob just to be safe. Have you tried soaking in the bath tub

    Maybe this website might help.
