Managing a Vaginal Zit
Zits are common in moist areas, where skin contains plenty of glands. Armpits, groins and vagina are some places where acne eruptions are very common.
What Is a Vaginal Zit?
There are plenty of lubricating glands in the vagina. If the duct of any gland gets blocked, a cystic swelling is formed. This is called a vaginal zit or a pimple.
Blockage occurs when the secretions are excessive or there is plenty of tissue debris lying in the area due to inadequate washing.

Zit May Get Infected
Zits are common and usually resolve on their own. However, sometimes we may inadvertently infect them.
This happens commonly when we fiddle with them, that is, try to squeeze or pop them. The bacteria from our hands get transfered to it.
Or else, due to continuous rubbing of the bump all the day with an underwear, they get traumatized and infected.
Zits are fertile grounds for the growth of bacteria. Bacteria grows inside and pus starts getting accumulated.
As the tension increases inside the zit, it becomes more and more painful.
Care and Management
- Wash the area adequately with water on a daily basis. No soaps or gels are required.
- Keep the area moisture free.
- Wear soft and loose cotton underwears only. They absorb the moisture that may accumulate in the area. Also, soft cotton fabric gives minimum friction.
- Drink plenty of water. Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. This would keep your skin healthy.
- Avoid fatty or greasy foodstuffs. They make your prone to zit formation.
- If you have a pimple, try doing warm compress over it to relieve pain and soften it. This technique may also be helpful to drain the zit.
- Apply a topical antibiotic cream over the infected zit at least thrice a day for a week.
