Blisters outside of vagina
On Friday, my husband and I had sex, and I noticed the next night that my private area hurt like he had some how tore me. On Suday, we had sex again and it still hurt. So I looked to see if I could see anything abnormal, but I saw nothing. However, since it hurt when I wiped myself (not when I pee) and when we had sex (only on the left side did it hurt) I decided not to have sex for a few days. The pain went away when I would wipe myself, so we had sex on Thursday. However, I felt it starting to hurt again. Today, after I took a shower, I decided to look again and noticed that I have several blisters on the outside of my vagina. It is only on the left side and I have no itching. Basically, it hurts when touched. What could it be? Also, I do have an unpleasant odor.
This could be bacterial vaginosis. A typical case of bacterial vaginosis makes itself known in the form of a thick, unpleasant smelling discharge, along with itching, burning, and pain. Because these symptoms can also be linked with yeast infections, it’s a good idea to go to a doctor to get a formal diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis, to ensure that you take the right approach to treatment. Even if you have had bacterial vaginosis before, you should still see a doctor to confirm.
If the condition does not clear up on its own, antibiotics can be prescribed to kill the bacteria. Some women also find that taking acidophilus supplements or eating yogurt with live active cultures can help to treat the condition, as well as preventing it in the future.
