Pimples around the Vulva

The delicate intimate skin is very sensitive, thus irritation of the vulva and vagina is quite common. Most women will experience it at least once in their lives.

Pimples, lumps, and bumps can form due to various causes such as ingrown hair, infected hair follicles, some sexually transmitted infections, and other health conditions.

Pimples occur when pores get clogged by dirt, sweat, and bacteria, causing inflammation.

To prevent and reduce these occurrences, it is recommended to cleanse the intimate area thoroughly with a natural cleansing oil to reduce the build-up over time.

One of the most common causes of pimples in the intimate area is Folliculitis.

It occurs when bacteria enter the pubic hair follicles on the labia. When hairs grow out of these follicles, they often curl backward into the skin. Shaving your pubic hair or even wearing tight-fitting underwear and sweating increases your vulnerability to pimples on the labia caused by folliculitis. Our gel-to-milk scrub helps to reduce ingrown hair with a gentle yet effective natural formula.

Another common cause is Contact dermatitis, which results from contact with chemicals found in products such as scented pads, tampons, bubble baths, and laundry detergents. These chemicals can irritate the labia, which may result in bumps developing in the area. The pimple-like bumps formed by contact dermatitis can be itchy or painful. Therefore, paying attention to the ingredient list and choosing a natural formula is recommended.

Often, these pimples on your labia will clear up without treatment.

If they don't, it is recommended to consult your gynecologist, and they could prescribe treatment.
