    Hi Alonna - this isn't any of the above, they are infected hair follicles. As you shave you will get these, basically the growing hair can't push through the skin, it gets infected and causes pus to gather. I get exactly the same if I shave which I why I always try and wax. To prevent this happening, on the few days after shaving use a product that prevents ingrown hairs such as 'no bumps' or Nads Ingriwn Solution'. To treat the ones you have, I would recommend releasing the pus with a sterile needle, then the hair will come out of its own accord.

    Ok those are definitey not bartholins cyst they appear at the opening or very near. Imagine a clock they'd be between 4-5 o'clock and 9-10 o'clock and in the mucas membrane. Those look to be seabastious(sp?) or even genital warts. Not all stds have an odor. Also a Bartholin gland cyst always presents under the skin and will grow larger. I've been dealing with these for years and years until I just underwent a gland removal. I also am in the medical field is to how I know exactly what they are. I would recommend being seen. Also you can have normal every day pimples but those look to just hair follicles or a sebasicous cyst. Don't freak out or stress gynes see way worse things. I don't recommend messing with them until you know what they are. Good luck

    Ok everyone so I took a shower last night really hot and this morning they were gone. They were only they're for 2-3 days max I didn't pop them I figured if it was a pimple or hot compress it would help. Do genital warts come and go that fast?

      They do not go away on their own at all.. I've seen them present like that maybe twice my whole career! If they went away almost 100% sure they were hair follicles!

    Those are sebaceous cysts. I have them to and I ran to the GYN thinking they were warts. They're filled with a thick waxy substance, and can be very hard to drain without your doctor's help. They're caused by a clogged pore/follicle. Even if you are able to drain them they usually come back. They usually don't hurt or cause a problem, but they don't look nice, so if you get more just have your GYN make a small cut and squeeze them out. I've had an easier time getting BC's to drain than sebaceous cysts! Good luck!
