Spider bite on Vagina?

An_218785 posted:
I woke up this morning with an itchy bump on the inner lip of my vagina. I think it may be a spider bite but I don't know for sure. I am 13 weeks pregnant and have tested negative for all STDs. I don't know what to take or how to get rid of it or if it is a poisonous bite. I called my doctor at 11:16 this morning and then again at 2 this afternoon. I left messages both times with the nurse but no returned call. Any suggestions on what I should do?

I had the same thing and it turned out to be an ingrown hair from my shaving. Try and let it run its course. It's itchy down
there because it gets little air.

You may want to go to urgent care and have them culture the bump to see exactly what it is. You should have them do a battery of STD test - yes do it AGAIN. It is possible the 1st test missed herpes or another STD symptom that may be causing the symptom you described. Good luck to you.
