It’s hard to know what has caused the pimple near your vagina. Since you are not sexually active, it is not due to a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Although many young women complain of pimples after shaving their pubic hair, this reasoning doesn’t apply to you either.
Possible reasons could include: irritation from your underwear rubbing against the area on your skin, or from a period pad, an ingrown hair, or a skin tag. You can try the home care below. If the pimple doesn’t go away in a week or so, make an appointment with your primary care provider to get checked.
- Soak in a warm tub 1-2 times a day
- Pat the skin (don’t rub) with a soft towel or dry with a hair dryer on the low or cool setting
- Do NOT squeeze or pop the pimple. This can cause infection and it will also take much longer to heal.
