Vaginal Acne: Reasons, Prevention, and Treatment of Acne in the Pubic Area
Most people will experience breakouts on their inner thighs at some point in their life. Despite the fact that it’s not actually located in the vagina, pimples along the “saddle” of the inner thighs and on the labia are commonly referred to as vaginal acne. Generally, it resembles pimples and acne that you might get on your face.
It’s important to remember that the skin of your genital area is sensitive, so do not use over-the-counter facial acne products on or near your labia and vagina without a health care provider's guidance, and never place any kind of facial acne medication inside the vagina.
