Lumps in your vulva?

Saba® makes you feel #CómodaContigo.

You probably don’t know what we’re talking about, which is why we recommend checking your V-Zone with a mirror carefully (especially if you’ve never done it before). It’s a good way to get to know your body and identify when there’s something strange, like small lumps. These may indicate that something is wrong and that we need medical attention.

These are some of the reasons why this may happen: 

Hair Removal Routine

Small lumps can be buried hairs due to your hair removal routine. They’re super painful, so forget about squeezing, pinching, or scratching them, because that will only affect that area. We recommend applying hot water compresses to the area until it flattens. Also, buried hairs are very common, so ask your dermatologist for treatment options that suit best with your skin. 

STDs

Some diseases and infections can produce lumps in your V-Zone as part of their symptoms.

Crabs (genital lice) can bite, and when this happens, your V-Zone may develop some swelling with small and itchy blue lumps. 

Herpes causes painful blisters, and they tend to appear 20 days after the infection. 

Genital warts are small lumps around the vagina and anus. They’re sooo irritating and very itchy.

If there’s any suspicion that you may have any of these, we recommend that you see your doctor ASAP

Something is wrong with your Bartholin’s glands

One of the most common reasons for lumps are cysts in the Bartholin's glands. These are two, pea-sized glands that are just at the entrance of the vagina, and secrete fluids to lubricate it during sex.

Sometimes, cysts can form in these glands for no specific reason. Some cysts are so small that you don't even realize they exist, while others can grow to the size of a grape. When these are infected, they become an abscess and it’s super painful. But don’t worry, your doctor can help you treat this. 

Skin Condition

It can be psoriasis or eczema if the skin of your V-Zone is exposed to these pathologies. Although these conditions mainly cause dryness and itching, they can also cause rashes and small lumps. But there’s no need to worry since your dermatologist can treat this without any problems.

Also, like any part of your body, your V-Zone is exposed to pimples, so avoid scratching or pinching. If you suspect it is a pimple, but it doesn't go away in a week, we recommend that you see your doctor to identify the cause.
