Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
1. First about the zit, please upload a picture, I would then try and tell you what it is.
2. Regarding the er... banana, you do not have any signs of infection yet. Please relax, these things happen, and nothing has happened right now.
You should see a doctor if you have - burning, itching, redness, a foul discharge, tenderness, burning during urination,burning during sex etc.
If these symptoms do not appear, do not worry.
Don't use any product to cleanse the vagina.
Just clean thoroughly with lukewarm water.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.

okay, I don't know which is the older photo by name, but the colder light one was taken few months ago. I suppose it don't look much like a zit/stick out as much, but it kinda feels like it when itchy taking picture of it is very hard due to lightning and hair, and shaving just makes me feel itchy, so normally don't, and i don't wish to make myself feel even more itchy than i am ^ ^
i haven't had sex with anyone before, but rarely masturbate w/dildo, so looking out for during sexual activity might be hard, should i just keep in the back of my head, and just focus on the other signs?
should i avoid using soap when washing the outer parts near/surrounding the vagina too? could that be something that contribute to itchyness? (for itchyness i have already or other)
also, how long can it take for symptoms to occur/show due to the err banana thing? if anything, does it usually show rather soon, or can it take a while? if a while, then after what amount of time is it alright to consider everything is fine, and if any of the symptoms occur, is anything you can get from it lethal, or mostly easily treated infections? it would kinda suck to die from... err... yeah
Yes, I cannot see the zit clearly, due to the lighting and the hair.
The second pic is clearer.
IT appears to be some kind of boil ( folliculitis )
That is common in this area, due to lots of hair follicles and sweat glands.
Please use local antibiotic ointment on this area.
Avoid handling / touching / rubbing / shaving for a few days.
IF this does not resolve, you might need to see a doctor for oral antibiotic therapy.
Yes, please watch out for the other symptoms.
Avoid using soap totally, that can lead to dryness and itching.
USe Bactroban 5.5 % ointment over the surrounding areas.
Patient replied :
ok, i'll look into that, and avoid using soap when washing myself around there also.
but for banana thing, I'm still left wondering if it's possible to contract something lethal or harmful from it, or if anything that comes from it is not dangerous and easily treatable, and how long after symptoms may present themselves /when I can consider myself safe, and breathe out and move on.
You would have the symptoms for a week maximum.
So don't worry. Hope it helped, Please feel free to discuss further.
