one white "pimple"
I have something on the outside of my vaginal 'lip' that looks like a white pimple. It is quite big (irt a pimple on your body) and it is hard. It itches a bit and hurts when something presses against it. I am a virgin, but I have a serious boyfriend and we have an active 'sexual' life. (of course except sex) I have never been to a gynaecologist and do not feel comfortable to visit my current (family) doctor with this problem. I also recently stopped using the pill (ginette) which I got from my dermatologist. I used it for about 2 years and has stopped for about 2 months now.

Please help me. I would like to know if this could be a std? I have never had this problem and it is a big concern to me.

Thank you.

It may be an infected hair follicle or sweat gland. It does not sound serious.
