Sore spot

To get straight to the point, I have a small spot on the inside of my labia. At first I could feel it there and checked it out but it was the same colour as the rest of that area so I didn't worry much. However, a few days later and it still hasn't gone.

I wouldn't be that concerned except it's sore now. It doesn't hurt unless I touch it. It's about a centimetre above the clitoris, a little to the right. I haven't had sex for two months and that was with a woman so I think it's unlikely (if not impossible) that it's some kind of STI. Could anyone reassure me that it's just a random spot and will go away? Or should I go to the doctor?

Just wanted to chime in to say that it is 100% possible to catch an STI from a female-female encounter.

Yeah, I know that, I meant it was less likely due to the nature of our contact. And mostly because it was so long ago. :)

Oh, alright. You didn't mention the context of the contact, so I was not sure.

Thank you for pointing it out though! It's important people know that female-female sexual interaction is a risk too and I wouldn't want to mislead.

Could it maybe be a pimple or an abrasion?

It's possible, but as I've never had anything at all like that down there before, I'm not sure what to look for.

I had a spot that is similar to what you describe. I had my GP look at it and she said that it was a comedone (whitehead) or something like that. Eventually it resolved.

Does warm compress help at all?

If it's only a couple of days old it could be a random spot, or ingrown hair. If it's one of those two you could've even scratched it in your sleep and irritated it. My girlfriend does that all the time. Scratches away and wakes up to find her tiny foofoo-spot has turned into an angry sore patch!

Anyhoo, it should go away on it's own. Spots can crop up anywhere. Keep the area as aired and clean as possible, and with any luck you'll be zit-free in a few days.

PS- our car is called Trillian ;)

Thank you! That's good to know. I tend to itch my legs and arms in my sleep so that's definitely a possibility.

Trillian! Excellent name for a car. ;)
