What are These Flesh Colored Bumps on My Vagina Lips?

Edited , 18 users are following.

I have been getting these flesh colored bumps on my vagina lips for a while now. They are usually there for a few days (about 4) at a time and they have always been in the same spots. They are about the size of a pea, firm, and somewhat painful (but only to the touch). From what I can tell and because they are firm, they do not seem to have goo or liquid inside them. There are no accompanying symptoms either. I get checked regularly and have never tested positive for STD's.

I have spent quite a bit of time searching the internet trying to figure out what they could be but to no avail. Does anyone out there have any idea?? I have photos but can't figure out how to post them - if that's even allowed. Any thoughts or opinions or information would be greatly appreciated.

      Don't be embarrassed, I've uploaded photos of my hemorrhoid before! 

      Have you been tested for HPV? They could even just be boils or deep ingrown hairs? Unusual that they appear in the same spot every time though.

      I would get your doctor to have a look at them.

      Yes. I've been tested for everything multiple times. In my last relationship my boyfriend cheated on me regularly so I made it a point to do so. He's also the only person I've been with in the last six years.

      Ingrown hairs popped into my mind as well but like you found their consistent location odd. And I'm not sure how boils come about. I suppose you're right - I just need to go have them looked out.

      Thank you for your input!!

    Hi Seeing your picture and that you shave I would lean towards ingrowing hairs so its see your doctor unless you want to pick them out yourself, but you say they have been there a long time, so what you have now are cyst and these will need to but cut out, sorry its the only way. OK

    As for you shaving this is not a put down as me and my wife have been shaved for to long, its the way you shave, hairs grow downwards and that is the way you have to shave, do that shaving downwards and your be OK.

    Your OK and not gross.

      They haven't been there for a long time, they've just been coming and going for a while now. They always come back in the same spot though which is why I eliminated ingrown hairs from the list of possibilities. 

      And yikes!! I hope I don't have to have something cut out from down there!!

      Thanks for the tips and input.
