Vaginal Sores and Lumps
Ulcers or inside the vagina or breaks in the surface lining of the vagina can be caused by irritation. If you have been using a cosmetic product, latex condoms or a spermicide, it is possible you may have an allergic reaction or a contact dermatitis.
If you do have blisters or ulcers inside the vagina, genital herpes is the most common cause. Even though you do not think you are at high risk for having a sexually passed infection, you should see your doctor for an evaluation if you have blisters or skin ulcers in the vaginal area.
After menopause, an ulcer can result due to too little estrogen. This problem is named atrophic vaginitis.
