Shortly after giving birth, I have noticed a small dark

Patient: Shortly after giving birth, I have noticed a small dark purplish small bump on my labia.

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,The bump at the labia seen immediately after a vaginal delivery is unusual actually as even if mucous congestion is to be seen, it is restricted to the vaginal mucousa.However purple small dark bump needs to be examined to evaluate. It is hence requested if you could send a picture of the lesion attached with the follow up as it would be helpful in establishing a diagnosis with acumen.Wishing you good health,Regards
