Thanks for writing to us.
Presence of blackish blue spurs inside vagina and on its lips is a harmless finding. These are skin tags or abnormal skin pigmentation spots which are benign in nature and remain like that for many years.
If you are too much concerned about their presence then you can get them removed either surgically or with the help of laser treatment but that is not necessary.
You only need to self monitor these lesions for any change in shape, size, color, irregular margins, ulceration, pain, etc. If any of these changes do appear it means they need to be investigated and then removed under the guidance of your dermatologist.
I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Thanks for writing again.
Even if they are spots, there is nothing to worry. These spots are due to overactive melanocytes. You can self monitor them also for any detrimental changes.
