Thanks for writing to us.

The labia minora and the opening around the vagina contains many glands normally and it has got a bumpy look normally.They look like tiny pimples or papillae.
There is nothing to worry if there is no itch or discharge coming from them.
These bumps sometimes look prominent according to the hormonal changes in our body.
If you are still worried you can visit your gynecologist who after proper examination will let you know the details and will help ruling out any STDs.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. If there are additional concerns, I am available for your followups.
