Hello,

Since you are sexually active and have bumps in your vagina, you are advised to get clinically examined by a gynecologist. Maybe they will not require treatment, but it should be clinically examined to rule out infections and the possibility of transmitting it to the others. It can be razor bumps or folliculitis. Do not overdo shaving. Excessive shaving may cause such bumps.

Applying cold compress or ointment hydrocortisone will help to relieve itching and discomfort. Do not douche. Other medical conditions that can cause similar symptoms are genital warts, skin colored bumps caused by HPV. Bumps due to STIs. Get clinically examined by a gynecologist, get required blood tests done. Get treated at the earliest. In the meantime, avoid any type of sexual activity. Avoid multiple partners. Perform safe sex.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
