Sore lumps on vagina, sorry way tmi cringe!


This is so embarrassing. I posted a thread last week about a sore swollen vagina (I hate that word!) and loads replied with similar symptoms. Now the swelling has gone down I have developed very painful blisters. When I saw midwife there was a trace of protein in water and I'm waiting for results, but I've only just finished anti biotics for a uti.
Trouble is whfn I've looked on google it keeps coming up with genital herpes and I feel really upset. I'm married and have had same partner for 6 years and have never experienced this before so I can't see how it can be that. I'm seeing doc tomorrow and I feel really scared though.
Midwife said today although my urine results haven't come back yet, there is a note of puss in my urine.
What on earth is going on? I don't think I'm gonna be able to sleep tonight!

Didn't want to read and run, haven't a clue what it could be but sending you a big hug anyway, hopefully its just another pregnancy thing and not herpes.

Could be sebaceous cysts?? I get these they aren't very nice, they are basically blocked pores that fill with puss, eventually they do go but they are sore and do get very irritated when rubbed by knickers and trousers xx

Where do sebacious cysts form? It's weird cos my lumps are on outer lips in a perfect straight line. They are like white blisters. Does it sound similar?

With one of my pregnancies I had sore lumps too, and it turned out to be a couple of ingrown hairs. Do you shave down there?? Hope you're OK and everything turns out OK for you. xx

I get cysts too by imo opinion you would know the difference between that and blisters, although i've never had blisters down there.

It probably is some kind of weird pregnancy related thing BUT just because you've been in a relationship for 6 yrs doesn't mean it can't be Herpes. It's a virus that lives in your system and will often come out only when you are run down/sick. You could get had it a decade but never had symptoms.
I've heard though that Herpes sores are like very uncomfortable and burny? They will pop and leave a red weapy sore.

Do your blisters hurt etc? Or are they just an annoyance.

I just looked on NHS site, it says...

painful red blisters that burst to leave open sores around your genitals, rectum (back passage), thighs and buttocks
blisters and ulcers on the cervix (lower part of the womb) in women
vaginal discharge in women
pain when you pass urine
a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or over
a general feeling of being unwell, with aches and pains

Thanks girls. There are no other symptoms of herpes, no fever or bursting red lumps etc. It's just that I would describe them as blisters and that's the main worry.
I had an all over swelling down there last week which midwife said could be trapped fluid so perhaps it's come from that?
They do sting but I have been scratching the irritation a bit, prob from all the wee dribbles in late pregnancy ha ha. It may be thrush but I've never heard of lumps with thrush. I hope whatever it is can't be passed to baby!

ive had this always on the same spot it returnes about twice a year and can flare up due to hormone changes
they usually burst on their own but you need to keep the area clean or it may become infected
