There can be many underlying causes for pimples in the genital area of a female.

Some of the common causes are:


1. Folliculitis - this is an infection of a hair follicle that causes small, red, tender bumps around the hair follicle.

2. Ingrown hairs - Ingrown hairs can occur when hair grows back into the skin instead of out of the skin. This can cause small, red, raised bumps that can be painful.

3. Acne - Acne can also occur in the pubic area, which can result in pimple-like bumps.

4. Allergic reactions - Allergic reactions to certain products like soap, laundry detergents, or other personal care items can cause bumps, itching, and redness in the genital area.

5. Skin tags – These are small, flesh-coloured growths that can develop around the vulva.


It is important to note that sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can also cause pimples or bumps on the genital area. If you are sexually active and have pimples that do not improve with self-care, see a medical professional for an evaluation and appropriate testing.
