Hello, I am happy to help you today with your question.

The possibilities for these nodules might include:

1. Swollen lymph nodes - possibly related to an infection
2. Clogged sweat glands - sometimes referred to as sebaceous inclusion cysts
3. Herpes - this is probably only the case if they look like blisters or cysts that contain fluid

In any case, it is something worth getting checked out by your OB/GYN. Looking at them in person will certainly lead to a quick and easy diagnosis. Good luck!

Please do write back in case you have follow up queries to ask.
