Question for RN or Doctors Pref OBGYN
An_248985 posted:

So on an unrelated note I have the flu currently. I woke up this morning with a sore swollen sensitive clitoris ( I have not had any sexual activity in over 3 weeks and I've been with the same man for over 3 years ). It does not hurt or burn its just extremely sensitive and its been this way all day. I'm not itchy and it does not hurt when I urinate. Although I think I see a small pimple on the left side (thats the side of the clitoris thats most sensitive). I've had pimples around there before I'm assuming from shaving. Basically what i'm asking is that a normal spot for a pimple to occur? How long will it take for the sensitivity to stop? I had a pap test roughly 8 months ago and it was normal by the way.

Yes, pimples or boils can develop in that area. Very often this may turn a bit more sensitive/painful until it either drains or recedes. This has nothing to do with the results from your PAP smear.
