A yeast infection isn't usually associated with sores or bumps around the vaginal area.

Here are some common symptoms of yeast infection, as well as a few ideas of what might be causing your sores and bumps:

What is a yeast infection?
Yeast is the name given to a number of different bacteria which are commonly present in small numbers on the human body.

They are usually concentrated around areas of moisture, including the mouth and the vagina.

When something causes an imbalance in the amount of bacteria present in the vagina, this may lead to a condition known as a yeast infection.

The main symptoms to look out for are:

  • Itchiness and soreness down under
  • Pain urinating
  • Odorless, cottage-cheese like discharge
The presence of bumps or sores isn't commonly associated with yeast infection.

What causes bumps or sores on the vagina?
If you're suffering from bumps or sores in the genital region, there are a number of conditions that may be causing this reaction.

They include:

  • Acne
  • Cysts
  • Boils
  • Dermatitis
  • Genital herpes
  • Syphilis
  • Vaginal/Vulvar cancer
If your symptoms persist and you are concerned or suffering discomfort, I'd suggest booking an appointment to see a doctor at once.

Not usually, no. I would run, not walk to the gynecologist to have it looked at.

It could be another type of nasty S.T.D. One which is very contagious and does not go away on its own. Also one that can cause grave physical complications!
