Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns. The multiple small raised spots inside vulva but outside vagina could be probably due to infection of hair follicle. It must be long standing. If they are not bothering you by itching, ulcer etc.... I suggest that you can ignore them. If you have trouble with those, please see a gynecologist who will remove them by a small procedure. If they are not causing problem, just leave them as it is as they won't harm.

I hope I answered your query.

Regards
Dr. Mahesh Koregol.

Hi,

Thanks for reply.

As the age advances, the density of hair as well as skin tone changes which makes displacement of earlier existing follicles to certain extent.

Since you are 65 years of age, that is a possibility. I suggest you get the lesions examined by a gynecologist for more local examination and associated factors which may be difficult for you to examine alone.

Please get back to me in case if you have any more doubts.

Regards,
Dr.Mahesh Koregol
